BRAND NEW ON E!
No need for Fox to put a dollar in the douchebag jar!
The network has decided to get a head start on renewal season, renewing their three Tuesday-night performers: Glee, New Girl and Raising Hope. Yes, you now have permission to gleek out, Glee fans, 'cause your favorite show is officially returning for a fourth season. (Ya know, 'cause we were all super worried.)
Given the strength of the Tuesday night lineup, it shouldn't come as a surprise that Fox renewed the three shows: Glee's averaging 8.9 million viewers this season, while Zooey Deschanel's adorkable comedy is one of the top-performing freshman series, averaging 8.3 million viewers each week. As for Raising Hope, it's pulling in 5.6 million viewers per week in its second season.
"Over the past season, New Girl has become the hottest new appointment series for young adults; Raising Hope has established itself as one of the smartest and most unique offbeat comedies on television; and Glee has continued its success as a genre-defying, global cultural phenomenon," Fox president Kevin Reilly says in a statement. "All three of these comedies add a fresh and distinctive flavor to our Tuesday nights, and I'm really happy to bring them back to our air next season."
By now, Glee fans should know that the series' fourth season is going to be "revolutionary," at least according to Lea Michele, as it will follow this year's graduating seniors. While we don't know much about next season, Chris Colfer teases, "It's a very new idea that I'm actually very excited about it."
