FOX renews Glee for 2nd season

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/...ee076340decffa


Fox has given an early second-season renewal to breakout freshman dramedy "Glee."

The show also is launching a nationwide casting search to fill new roles for season two.

The auditions will start in February and will be open to amateurs and professionals between the ages of 16-26.

"Anybody and everybody now has a chance to be on a show about talented underdogs," co-creator/exec producer Ryan Murphy said. "No matter who you are -- a Broadway talent or a struggling singing waiter with a dream in the Midwest -- you now have an opportunity to make that dream come true by posting your talent video and showing us what you can do."

He noted that all roles will be chosen from the video audition process, making "Glee" "the first interactive musical comedy on television."

The casting search will be chronicled in a multi-part special that will lead up to "Glee's" second season premiere in the fall which will reveal the new cast members.

"We've loved 'Glee' ever since it was a pilot script, so it's been an incredible thrill to watch the show take root and see audiences embrace these characters in such a huge way this season," Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said. "The show is a true and rare gem in television."
Very good news to start off Monday along with Chuck doing well in the ratings.

Expected this, but always good to get a confirmation.

Just started watching this over the Holiday break... After watching the pilot and hating it, shit ton of friends convinced me to give it one more chance and can say I was pleasantly changed. Good news on the renewal.

Re: FOX renews Glee for 2nd season

so with the idea of "new roles/characters" does this mean that some are leaving/not returning or what

No I don't think so, but depending on how long the show lasts, characters will eventually have to be written out. I think they want to see if there is any breakout undiscovered talent out there.

The current group of characters are all sophomores I believe, so we will at least have 3 seasons with them if the show lasts that long.

They should just call 19 entertainment and have them send over all the audition tapes from American Idol. Will save them lots of trouble.

I'll call it now: at least one of the finalists for the upcoming season of American Idol will be cast in Season 2 of Glee.

Good thing Glee isn't a musical, huh?

Re: FOX renews Glee for 2nd season

I'm a little outside the age range. I don't look as old as I am, but I don't think I could pass for a teenager anymore.

Maybe a musically-inclined janitor whose dreams of a career in theater were dashed by a bad marriage and a mountain of debt...

You'd fit right in. None of the current cast passes as a teenager. When I first saw clips the show I thought it was an ad for Young at Heart.

Not surprising. Not only does it do decent ratings, the amount of crap Fox can milk from the show is endless (CDs, Shirts). I'll catch the first season when it hits Blu-ray.

Re: FOX renews Glee for 2nd season

Didn't know where else to put this, but there's going to be a special guest director + actor this season (assuming all the x's are signed and Fox approves):

Spoiler:
Joss Whedon is directing an episode that Neal Patrick Harris is appearing in.

I sure hope some natural disaster telethon doesn't pre-empt that episode.
