It’s the question on everyone’s mind; well, at least on Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly’s mind.
I would love to wish you all a gleeful start to the year and I hope your holidays were enjoyable. Also a big happy birthday to Naya Rivera (Santana), who turned 27 on 12th January, Becca Tobin (Kitty), who on 18th January turned 28 and a huge Happy Birthday to Miss Heather Morris who will be turning 26 on 1st February. Send them your gleeful wishes on their twitter accounts. (@NayaRivera & @becbecbobec)
But to refer to the headline, recently at the Television Critics Association, Mr Reilly, when asked about the status of Glee’s Season 5, answered with:
“Yes, that is a real possibility. We’re going to negotiate now for the fifth season and beyond, so we’re talking about those things now.”
So although not completely confirmed, it could be a definite that we are all going to be watching a season 5 (and beyond) of FOX’s hit show.
Regardless of the awkward scheduling this season and the divided story lines from Ohio to New York, Fox is extremely happy and by the sounds of it, gleeful, when it comes to a new season. There could be a few minor changes in the location though, explains Reilly,
“I wonder- could it, and should it, naturally move [to New York City]?I have to talk to Ryan and see where he’s at right now.”
It could be a good idea with so many more core characters set to graduate at the end of this season, but would Glee still be Glee without McKinley?
“[Season 4] was ultimately what became of the spinoff talk: Let’s do it within the franchise.”, explained Kevin Reilly on Jan 8th, “I do think if we can continue to follow a broad array of characters, it’s like life, you have relationships, you have friends, they go off, their lives go on and you get together and, maybe you maintain a friendship, maybe you lose distance. I think we can do that within this world of people you followed”
Mr Rielly was also keen to point out that what lies ahead will certainly involve cast members such as Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Amber Riley and Naya Rivera.
“Some of them have moved on to other things or wanted to move on to other things, but they love the show, and this gives them a chance to come back and do an arc. It would be fun to continue that morphing.”
But as said by wetpaint.com, “Is this a sign that Fox doesn’t love this season’s new McKinley students?”
Well, let us know any thoughts and comments you have about this “to be confirmed” plan for Glee and any ideas on Season 5 storylines.
