Glee gets early pick-up for season 3!

In a very unprecedented yet fantastic move, Fox has ordered a third season of Glee – before they’ve even finished airing season 1 or started filming season 2! It’s not that surprising that Fox wants more Glee considering that it’s the 2009-2010 season’s number 1 new scripted series among adults 18-49, but to order a third season this early on isn’t very common. Here’s what Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly had to say about the news:

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

Entertainment Weekly‘s report on the announcement calls it a positive message about the network’s commitment to the show, and says that the pick-up will help Glee financially (as it can help reduce production costs over the long haul) and story-wise (as the writers can now plan ahead and run plot lines over a longer period of time).

Congratulations to the cast and crew of Glee for this amazing news!
