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

Rachel: This is what I wanted!
Sam: No, what you wanted was a second chance to get it right and Carmen just gave it to you. If you throw all that away you're going to be making the same mistake all over again

Finn: I seem to recall a rumor about a certain cheerleading coach at this school who once took horse estrogen and posed for Penthouse back in the day. So maybe I can just track that down and make a few copies and sell those to raise money for Regionals.
Sue: That's nothing but a rumor. But if that rumor were true, my Penthouse centerfold so groundbreaking that it completely redefined the term 'hirsute,' and gave birth unto these United States a pose so limber they named it the Regal American Not-So-Bald Spread Eagle, I promise you, my friend, you would never find it.
