Glee may get early greenlight for season 2
According to The Wrap, rumours are flying that FOX is seriously considering giving Glee a very early season two renewal. Typically shows don’t get approval for a second season until May, just before upfronts, and every so often, when a show is a huge success, it will get the nod in February or March. But a January pickup is a very rare occurrence, one that last happened notably with Heroes back in 2007.
Nonetheless, it seems highly likely that FOX execs may give us some Glee-fully happy news this Monday when FOX meets with reporters at the winter Television Critics Association’s press tour (which begins in Pasadena, CA today). As The Wrap points out, there would be plenty of benefits from FOX giving Glee the go-ahead earlier than usual:
For one thing, it would give Murphy time to start planning season two as soon as he can (part two of season one is just beginning production). And the entire Fox machine, from marketing to media relations, would be able to begin thinking about what’s next for the show.
