Sad news Gleeks of the world…
Rumor has it that the masterminds of Glee — Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuck and Ian Brennan — have NOT yet officially agreed to return for another season, and if they don't confirm their involvement SOON, FOX might not renew the show!
Quick, grab a paper bag cause this sh*t may cause extreme hyperventilation!
We initally heard that The Glee Project had been CANCELLED, but it seems the peeps behind the show are just waiting for word on whether or not Glee season 5 would be confirmed.
Because we can't believe that after TEASING us with Season 5 plot deets, Ryan would all of a sudden pull the plug. He wouldn't forsake his fans in such a manner!
