"In just one year, Glee has transcended the television landscape and emerged as a global pop-culture phenomenon," Peter Rice, Fox networks' entertainment chairman, said in a statement.
Series creator Ryan Murphy also released statement about the musical dramedy's success: "It's been a whirlwind year — from shooting the pilot to performing at the White House to the concert tour that began last week — and yet we all feel like we've just begun this amazing musical journey. We think our Gleeks worldwide are going to love what we'll have in store for them in seasons two and three."
Glee, which wraps up its first season June 8, will resume on Tuesday nights next fall.
