Fox is officially head-over-heels for Glee. The network picked up the show's third season -- before the second one even started filming!
Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly says, "Everything about Glee -- from the concept to the characters to the marketing -- has been innovative and risky...Glee has one of the most active, devoted fan bases I've ever seen, and we couldn't be more thrilled to give Gleeks a third season of their favorite show."
Ryan Murphy, the show's co-creator, echoes that sentiment. "It's been a whirlwind year - --from shooting the pilot to performing at the White House to the concert tour that began last week -- and yet we all feel like we've just begun this amazing musical journey. We think our Gleeks worldwide are going to love what we'll have in store for them in seasons two and three."
Ryan also leaked to other Ryan -- you know, Seacrest -- part of next season's plot.
Mark Salling (Puck) and Kevin McHale (Artie) were guests on Seacrest's KIIS FM radio show when they learned that their characters will need to audition again to be in next year's glee club. And only one of them will make it.
Dun dun dun.
Kevin joked, "I have to make it! I'm not going to sleep now." And Mark, who found work playing the guitar on Craigslist before his big Glee break, teased, "I may have to go back to Craigslist."
