CHICAGO – Before the first season has even concluded, FOX announced that they have renewed their massive hit show “Glee” for a third season, clearly confident in the long-term potential of this award-winning series. Peter Rice, Chairman, Entertainment, Fox Networks Group; and Kevin Reilly, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company made the announcement today via press release.

Rice said, “In just one year, Glee has transcended the television landscape and emerged as a global pop culture phenomenon. We are incredibly proud to have talent like Ryan Murphy and the Glee cast in our FOX family, and we can’t wait to see where Ryan takes the show in Seasons Two and Three.”

“Everything about Glee – from the concept to the characters to the marketing – has been innovative and risky, but with Ryan Murphy tapping into the zeitgeist, the risk has paid off with this truly remarkable series,” said Reilly. “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.”

“Brad, Ian, Dante, the cast and I are all thrilled and honored by the overwhelming support of Glee from FOX, the studio and our amazing fans,” said Ryan Murphy, co-creator and executive producer of Glee. “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. Having time to plan ahead is wonderful, and we think our Gleeks worldwide are going to love what we’ll have in store for them in Seasons Two and Three.”

The music of Lady Gaga is featured in the next all-new episode of “Glee,” airing tomorrow night, May 25th, 2010. The season finale airs on June 8th, 2010 and returns in the fall for its second season on Tuesdays at 7pm CST.

“Glee” is the highest-rated new scripted series of the season among key demos and has already won a Peabody Award, Golden Globe, and Screen Actors Guild Award. At least an Emmy nomination — and likely a win or two - seems inevitable.

‘Glee’ airs on FOX on Tuesdays at 8pm CST (moving to 7pm in the fall). It stars Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Kevin McHale. It was created by Ryan Murphy.

  • Everybody, Brown Paper Box Co

    CHICAGO – When is the last time a stage play, based in an intimate setting, made you think about your life, death, and the destiny inherent in both? “Everybody,” staged by Brown Paper Box Co. (BPBCo), is such a play, and the energetic aura and sense of surprise that the show contains is soul soothing wonder. The show has various evening/matinee performances at the Pride Arts Center in Chicago run through August 12, 2018. Click here for more details, including ticket information.

  • Not One Batu

    CHICAGO – The State of Hawaii may be one of the most misunderstood in America. Because of its reputation as a tourist mecca, the fact that native peoples live and work there like any other place is hard to imagine. Also unimaginable is the drug use of island residents, but playwright and Hawaiian native Hannah li-Epstein wrote about it in her stage play “Not One Batu,” now in its Premiere Chicago run at the Berger Park Coach House through July 28th, 2018.
