Ryan Murphy please do not make Glee too different. We love the high school glee club concept! Don't make the phenomena not continue!! What is going to happen to our beloved show?
Hot on the heels of Glee’s season 3 finale, an interview with Ryan Murphy has emerged where he talks very candidly about what’s in store for season 4!
We brought you some previous comments from Ryan Murphy from this same Vulture interview, but in light of speculation of season 4, there is so much more to know! Here are some of the highlights we took away from the full interview regarding what’s in store next season.
Talking about Kevin Reilly, Fox entertainment president and season 4:
“Kevin wants a Glee that’s about Top 40, pop culture, big stars. So I know that he loved the end of this season, and I went and pitched him the next season and I think he loves it because it’s very pop-culture-based.”
On season 4 being an underdog story and the fate of Rachel Berry through the entire series:
“Even though Glee is sometimes a hard road, I am very excited about writing a multi-year arc. For example, Rachel Berry, meeting her as you did, hopefully by the end of her journey she will be a star. That’s a very long, long period. That’s harder, because you don’t get instant satisfaction. But I know where she’ll end up; I know what the last scene will be.”
On the production of season 4:
“The show next year will have less characters than we’ve ever had and I think that’s a good thing. But I don’t think that you’ll see a show that suddenly you don’t recognize.”
Regarding the formula of Glee:
We did not want to repeat the formula we’ve done. The show will be very different, but I think very satisfying.
On moving to the 9pm slot following X Factor in the fall:
I think it’s a really great night of television. I love Britney. I think Britney’s going to bring a lot of eyes to that screen and the flow of a musical show into a musical show is great. It’s always what I wanted. I’d been begging for that for two years. I wanted to be on after American Idol or X Factor just because when I’m watching Idol, and I’m having a fun, young pop-culture experience, I don’t want to watch a hard drama after. Thursday is going to be a night of pop-culture celebration for Fox. There’s gonna be a lot of tie-ins that we’re gonna do. I also love that we’re gonna be at nine, which we were before, because I think we can go back to a little bit more [mature] writing. We’re doing that.eat the formula we’ve done. The show will be very different, but I think very satisfying.
What do you think of the Season 4 format?
