‘The Glee Project’ Cancelled

THE GLEE PROJECT Season Finale Episode 10 "Glee-ality" (1)

The Oxygen Channel has cancelled The Glee Project, TV Line has learned. Oxygen made the announcement this week in a statement. “The Glee Project will not be returning to Oxygen, but we are extremely proud of this series which launched the careers of several talented individuals,” the network announced. “The show had so much heart and we thank Ryan Murphy and all of the creative talent who helped make the series a critical darling.”

The cancellation comes after Oxygen expressed their difficulty at producing the project back in April. With the Fox network’s late decision to renew Glee’s fifth season, Oxygen was left in waiting before enlisting a cast of their own.

In addition, the network revealed that this was the only factor in their decision to drop ‘The Glee Project’, stating that the sad and unexpected death of ‘Glee’ cast member Corey Monteith did not contribute to the show’s demise.

Meanwhile, Glee’s co-creator Ryan Murphy is currently looking to cast two new actors to fill the void left behind by Monteith. Series producers have issued a casting call with the hope of maintaining their initial fall premiere for season 5 of the show.
