Ryan Murphy Dishes on Past and Future of Glee

by at . Comments

Just days after his show was nominated for a slew of Golden Globe Awards, Glee creator Ryan Murphy spoke on the honors in a new interview.

“I was very proud of the show," he said. "But I was so happy about the actors, particularly for Matt [Morrison], Lea [Michele] and Jane [Lynch], all of whom have worked so hard and so long and this is kind of their first big awards season. Particularly Jane who has worked for years and years and years.”

Referring to Lynch's breakout role as Sue Sylvester, Murphy offered a few Glee spoilers related to her:

"If you thought she was bad in the first 13, she’s doubly wicked and funny in the [rest].”

Those episodes, of course, won't start airing until April 13.

That's a long time to wait for fans. But Murphy at least has exciting news about the Madonna-themed installment that will air in the spring.

“We have 10 Madonna songs in one episode – a huge amount and I’m really excited about that. I’m really excited about Kristen Chenoweth coming back, she’s such a doll and I love writing for her and I love pitching songs that she’s never sung.

"And we have a couple of really big top-secret guest stars who I can’t say. Childhood idols of mine... They love the show and wanted to do it.”

April is far too long to wait! I'm excited for the Madonna episode though, and looking forward to more Finn/Rachel.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.
