Get ready for 30 more minutes of Glee: “Born This Way” episode will be 90 minutes long

April 3, 2011

TheatricalityIf you’ve ever watched an episode of Glee and, as the credits rolled, wondered why the episode couldn’t have gone on longer/had more excellent one-liners/delved deeper into the theme/had more musical numbers, you’re going to love this news.

Glee‘s upcoming episode “Born This Way” (airing April 26) is likely going to be expanded to a 90-minute time slot, rather than the usual 60. Fox hasn’t officially confirmed the longer episode yet, but TVLine reports that it’s looking like it will get the green light. Although much of the episode has already been shot, if Fox allows the episode to be extended, the producers plan to go back and incorporate two additional musical numbers to help fill out the extra time.

If you haven’t already guessed, the episode is named after the latest Lady Gaga hit single, “Born This Way”, and the episode will close with a performance of the song. The episode will centre around self-acceptance, a theme that’s definitely not new to the show, with season 1’s “Theatricality” being a perfect example. School bully Karofsky will have a big storyline in this episode as he begins to come to terms with his sexuality, while Lauren will challenge the traditional image of pageant princess by running for prom queen, and Rachel will consider getting a nose job.

So gleeks, does the idea of an extra half an hour of Glee make you want to sing and dance? Are you ready to join the members of New Directions in accepting themselves for who they are while singing a rousing rendition of “Born This Way”? Share your thoughts on this news in the comments!
