It could happen! Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly recently spoke about the network and included some interesting details about Glee coming back for a fifth (and maybe sixth) season.

TVLine.com is reporting that Reilly was happy with where season 4 of Glee has gone in terms of the storyline and likes the “consistency” of the show:

“The New York concept has worked very well. Cutting back and forth has been seamless and both worlds have been dynamic.”

He goes on to add that he wishes there were a more consistent schedule for the show (remember all the hiatuses that left Gleeks hanging for weeks on end):

“I [just] wish we were able to program it more consistently this fall.”

Reilly also had some interesting comments about the possibility of Glee season 5:

“We’re going to negotiate now for the fifth season and beyond.”

“And beyond”? Does that mean we may have more than one season renewal? With the show on the decline over recent years in regards to viewership, one has to wonder if a multi-season renewal would come with the bad news of the series ending.

Maybe we’ll find out that Glee will be renewed for season 5 and season 6, with the sixth season being its last? Or could “and beyond” mean that they’ll figure out if the fifth season is in fact the last?

What are your thoughts about Fox’s comments about the future of Glee?

    I have to agree. This season has produced some exceptionally good musical numbers and I’ve enjoyed the New York/Ohio storyline overall. Based on the episodes so far I’d watch a Season 5 for sure.

    I find myself, and other fans only caring about the New York storyline, so the fact that they say it’s been “Seamless” is laughable.

    That being said, they’ll go ahead and renew for at least one more season to try and flesh out these new characters, continue to avoid giving plot lines to the old ones (Tina, Artie, Joe, Sugar, specifically), and get Blaine to New York…

    After that I hope the show “Glee” ends and then moves forward with the characters of Kurt, Rachel, and Blaine with guest appearances from the other members of the cast as the spinoff that fans have so desperately been asking for.

    • Marie

      And Santana! Honestly, her and Blaine are the only ones I REALLY care about, which is why I wouldn’t say I’m really invested in the NY plot. On the other hand, I’m not really invested in McKinley either.

      • http://twitter.com/SarahKHansen S.K.Hansen

        I second that. We need Santana back for good and a hopefully in NY.

    • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

      Please no. If Blaine goes to New York, please let it not be for Kurt. Then transfer Puck over, and it’ll be good. Plenty of old storylines to come back. The old Kurt/Puck bullying, but having to be near each other.

      • Marie

        I think Blaine’s motivation is mostly for Kurt. He definitely takes the codependency cake.

        • http://twitter.com/Dillon_Mays Dillon Mays

          I know, and I really don’t want that.

  • isistelle

    Honestly I want Glee to last forever

  • Marie

    Point 1: I disagree with it being seamless, and I really see that this split will make it hard in the long-term. Or if it doesn’t make it difficult, I will be annoyed because most everyone will end up in New York, which would be a little unrealistic.

    Point 2: Now, I love Glee. I really, truly, do. However, McKinley is going to really struggle without the current seniors, especially Blaine, Sam, and Brittany (and Artie just as a singer), UNLESS they can bring in some better people. However, getting us to care about these people is still going to be really difficult. ALSO, this cast is ridiculously huge, and it looks like it’s only getting bigger. They can’t maintain this, and they’ve definitely struggled with it this season. Also, personally, I’m really not that invested in New York. There are certain aspects I like, but I really dislike Rachel (although she’s gotten more tolerable from the sending-Sunshine-to-the-crack-house days). The best thing about the spilt for me, personally, is that I don’t get so Rachel overloaded as I used to feel I was. I think I would enjoy New York more if Blaine was there, but since I feel like Blaine is going mostly due to his Kurt-obsession, I just. . .ugh, no me gusta.

    Point 3: Since I feel that next season will be problematic, it probably should end sooner than later. I would honestly be ok if this was the last season, as much as I love it. I would rather the show end with me loving it rather than it running a long time and I end up hating it. I also have just noticed that most of my favorite shows, by season 4 or 5, they lose steam and start being less awesome, or even bad. I still think this season has been pretty good, but I fear for season 5.

  • MorrisonFan

    As a long time fan of Glee since season 1, I have to be honest and say I have no interest whatsoever in the New York side of the show and find the McKinley side much more like Glee and more interesting. Also, I haven’t been enjoying this season as much as the others because I have no interest in Glee without Matt Morrison there so I’m only interested in a season 5 if he stays which means I would prefer if McKinley was still the center of the show. The show is called GLEE and not NYADA which makes me feel like most of the focus should be on McKinley’s Glee club New Directions. I agree with one of the posters on here saying it may be best for the show if it ends at season 4. Otherwise, the show will face a problem of trying to keep older characters while still bringing in new characters. Just my two cents.

    Well, whenever we renew our Simpsons contract we get two season with an option for a third. Fox has always taken all 3 seasons every time so far but who knows how long that will last. Even if Glee’s ratings are declining, if they don’t have something better to replace it they’ll keep it running. It still seems popular enough to keep going. I could see them negotiating a bundle of their own. The most I could see them pushing the series is until Rachel graduates from NYADA. I don’t know how much more along their life they could try to follow. Once you loose the school structure it gets hard to track time.

  • jess

    I used to love Glee. I appreciate that they decided to bring in new characters instead of keeping the old ones in high school forever. But it’s just not the same without Quinn. And Puck. And Santana. I just don’t get nearly as excited over it anymore. I think one more season would be good and then maybe it’s time for it to end.

  • luna97831

    They’re going to start to sever ties with the alums if they want to make this work. The show is overwhelming and confusing as it is, jumping back and forth from New York to Lima, while trying to build up the new characters and not completely avoid the seniors. Finn will probably decide that he loves teaching or something and once Schue comes back he’ll leave to get a degree. That takes care of Finn for four years. Rachel and Kurt, not to mention Brittany, Sam and Blaine, are basically the stars of the show, so I’ll have no idea how they’ll cut them out. Blaine will get into NYADA, and Brittany will probably follow Santana and get the same cheerleading scholarship, but Glee has to learn to let the alums go…. Or else they’ll just get driven into the ground.

    • Marie

      YES! EXACTLY! They can maintain or increase this cast list. Definitely not increase. The only current senior I really envision them doing more than a pop-in role with post-graduation though is Blaine, and possibly Brittany, if only for stuff with Santana, if they make Santana bigger again. Honestly, as Coty said a long time ago, they should’ve killed Quinn. One less cast member to worry about. In fact, maybe they should just kill all the people who aren’t doing anything anyway, or the really annoying ones.

      • luna97831

        hahaha as much as I love Quinn, I completely agree with you. We would have been sad about it for a little while, but honestly, when they keep bringing in carbon copies of the alums, how could we miss her for too long? :P In all seriousness though, I think that they should cut characters out for good post-graduation – they would probably keep a few kicking around (*cough cough* Rachel *cough cough*) just to keep the fandom hanging on, but honestly, it would be way less annoying for both the audience and the writers to have all the alums pop in every once in awhile and need to have some explanation as to what they’ve been doing… I just feel like even the writers aren’t convinced about how genuine their new characters are and they feel like they need to keep bringing people back to fill in completely unneccessary roles, like mentors or whatever…

  • Maya

    I love Glee. I do. But I find myself not wanting to watch anymore. I don’t like that the new characters they brought in are basically carbon copies of alums. Even Finn has become Mr. Schue 2.0. They need to wrap up Glee and turn the Rachel/Kurt storyline into its own show. Or, maybe even keep Glee, but turn Rachel and Kurt into a separate show. There are too many characters on the show right now, and it makes the plot confusing, not to mention that there are episodes that characters are just completely left out of. I also feel that having all these characters makes the audience less invested, since they have so many people that they are supposed to care about. Please, just separate the two storylines.

  • claystripe

    I seriously am ready for this series to end. I used to adore Glee, but I’m definitely among the ever growing ranks of those who have abandoned ship. It’s truly baffling how many incredibly talented people have been stuck in this show for years while the writers just slap together lame pop culture jokes and repetitive “drama” scenes. Can it just end so all these actors can move on to bigger and better things? …I just really want Darren Criss to release another album and be a superstar, OK?

    • frezb

      I couldn’t have said it better myself.

  • Kurstan

    Honestly I’m kind of done with the Blee…oops, glee sorry. I’m tiered of the forced friendships, and the stupid plots with no meaning or rational. And the crap they keep putting Kurt through UGH!

  • Tomas

    I would like a fifth and sixth season! I would like to see more of Santana though, I like Rachel’s storyline the most, but we haven’t seen much of her.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100003094208029 Stephanie Evans

    Can they just drop Glee entirely and do a spin-off at NYADA? with a mix of orginal glee cast members (meaning like..three or four) and the rest a completely new cast? Puck, Santana, Mercedes, and ect, can visit but they have to go home. lol

    The fans are growing up just as much as the characters themselves, which is why most fans probably find New York more interesting than Lima.

  • daff

    no!! Cancel is and let Ryan Murphy concentrate on something decent like American Horror Story!!

  • Caroline

    I really think Glee should quit now while they’re still ahead. The writing has just gotten worse the last two seasons, characters are bouncing back and forth like yo-yos, previous information is being completely ignored or even flipped just two or three episodes later. Honestly, this show has become a joke compared to what it was during season 1 and 2. Fox just needs to let Glee go and develop a new show. Milking Glee for two more seasons when the writers ran out of material midway through season 2? Not a good decision. There’s a reason why so many former friends have left the Glee fandom: it’s not the same show, and it’s not well written. The actors on that show deserve better.

  • Strumchick

    I watch Glee for Brittany and Sam. That Mayan arch was hysterical. They should just focus the show on them and get rid of Blaine and Rachel.

  • mirna

    Unfortunately, I’m one of those people that as long as my favourite characters are on the show, I’ll be watching. That said, I think the show needs to get rid of some of the seniors that graduated last year, or only have them come back a few times a year. I mean, we have 8 people from last year that have graduated, and then we’re adding Sam, Blaine, Artie, Tina and possibly Brittany to that. Other than Blaine I see them only really showing the others a few episodes per season, and if that’s going to happen I think it’s only fair that it’s the same for last years graduates. Otherwise this cast is going to be even more ridiculously large that usual.

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.r.bailey Richard Bailey

    I just want my NYADA spin off. I would be perfectly fine with that.

  • Hanna

    I have seen that most people are mainly interested in the NY plot but I think that keeping McKinley is nessasary since that’s how Glee started.

    Please keep old story lines and let Finchel be forever, I think too many changes can be intense. I believe that old characters that aren’t exactly being continued regularly in the fourth season ( Quinn, Puck, Santana…) should have their story line better replaced.

    I’m impressed with the consistency of Rachel, Finn and Kurt in NY.

  • http://twitter.com/Kouavang1 Koua Vang

    There’s no point of a spin-off. spin-off tv shows are always horrible. Glee season 5 should just focus on the 13 original characters from seasons 1 and 2: Rachel, Mercedes, Tina, Santana, Quinn, Brittany, Finn Puck, Artie, Kurt, Blaine, Mike, and Sam. This is the cast we fell in love with and we won’t watch a show without these cast members

    • huh

      Sorry but what about Marley, Jake, Unique, Ryder and Kitty? This is their first season and it’s rocky yes, but they’ve done an excellent job with the last few episodes I think, I fell in love with them not because of the showstopping sounds, but because they ressemble what Glee is: Having dreams and being able to fight for them, and it doesn’t matter what anyone says about it because it’s your dream. Honestly I hate the glee fandom so much, Like there’s not one valid point that can bring the old cast back, I love the new one so why don’t we thrive on that? Thank you.

    I cannot believe you all. glee isnt about the Kurt/Rachel/Blain/Santana show, if i thought right, most people hated these characters at one point or another, in the first season everyone usually only had one couple they liked. Glee is an underdog story and thats what i want to see, i definetly dont want it to end, maybe after the glee club wins something like internationals then i can see it ending, but moving everyone to newyork? really? that sounds so dumb you might as well call it NEWYORK MUSICAL! and if you want that go watch smash, oh wait, thats right… it got cancelled. I think they should in wrap up the newyorkers in a way so its not only reflecting them in the show and go more in depth about the mckinley crew and even LA i would love to see Finn in college Artie being a film director Puck writing movies (or whatever?) and Mercedes becoming a star in LA and Santana Tina Racheal Kurt and Blaine in Newyork, if the writers could some how do that perfectly i am sure they could make a great show where everyone gets what they wanted.
