Can you hear the people sing? Singing the song of happy Gleeks!
It's been a longtime coming, but they say that good things come to those who wait — and we've FINALLY gotten what we've been waiting for!
Official confirmation just came from FOX that Glee has been renewed for not one, but TWO more seasons.
And what's more, we maybe hanging onto to Ryan Murphy and Co. along with the show! Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said in a statement announcing the news:
"Glee debuted as the first and only successful musical comedy series on television, and more than four years later, it continues to defy genres, break new ground and have a significant impact on popular culture. Week in and week out, Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan, Dante DiLoreto and the entire Glee team deliver a series that not only delights and surprises fans, but also inspires them to talk about, share, debate and engage with the show — and I’m absolutely thrilled to have them on board for another two seasons.”
HELLO GORGEOUS NEWS!!!
Oh, and speaking of Lea Michele (nice segue, right?), our favorite Glee diva tweeted this shortly after the news was announced:
Such great news! Glee will be back for season 5 and 6! I'm so happy!!! Can't wait to see what Rachel will be up to next year! #gleeseason5

Oh happy day! That means, even if Cory Monteith can't return for the end of the season, Rachel and Finn's fairytale love story will still get the chance to wrap up nicely. In fact, it will have two more YEARS of wrapping up nicely!
Happy days are here again! We can't contain our excitement… we feel a GIF explosion coming on!!!!
And finally, Jonathan Groff approves this message:
