Glee Season 5 to Focus on New York City?

at . Comments

While fans await the return of Glee Season 4 on January 24, Fox Entertainment President Kevin Reilly addressed the long-term future of the show at this week's Television Critics Association winter press tour.

Reilly said he's negotiating right now for a fifth season ("and beyond") with Ryan Murphy and it's possible that 2013-2014 could see the show's focus shift entirely to The Big Apple.

"I wonder - could it, and should it, naturally move [to New York City]?" Reilly asked, adding that Glee could still follow  a"broad array of characters," if New York becomes the primary location:

"It's like life: You have relationships, you have friends - they go off, their lives go on, and you get together and maybe you maintain a friendship, maybe you lose distance. I think we can do that within this world of people you followed."

Overall, it's unclear what lies ahead, but Reilly seems opportunity to continue to include cast members such as Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Amber Riley and Naya Rivera in some capacity.

"Some of them have moved on to other things or wanted to move on to other things," he said, "but they love the show, and this gives them a chance to come back and do an arc. It would be fun to continue that morphing."

What do YOU think, TV Fanatics? Do you want to see Glee Season 5? And, if so, should it be based on New York, Lima or split between the two?

Dans Glee se qui est important se les personnages ( les anciens), on a débutait avec eux, on c'est intéressait a Glee, grâce a eux, on aimerait savoir tout sur eux, comment ils grandissent etc... au début c'était fonder sur le lycée, mais voilà ils ont passaient le lycée et normalement dans la saison 5, c'est tous, parce que oui c'est vrai que dans la saison 4, Brittany n'a pas eu son diplôme, et c'est normal de continuer dans la saison 4 sur Brittany mais dans la saison 5, elle aura un son diplôme, j'espère que Santana et Brittany dans la saison 5 vont se remettre ensemble, c'était le plus beau couple, parce qu'elles se battaient pour leurs amours et c'était trop romantique, elles sont faites pour être ensemble, j'aimerai savoir si elles se remettrons ensemble comment elles vont évoluées, dans la saison 4 Brittany se met avec Sam mais normal, elle a fait une pause avec Santana et elle se sent seule sans Santana, mais elles s'aiment toujours, et dans la saison 5, Brittany et Santana si elles sont toutes les 2 a New York, elles ne seront plus loin l'un de l'autre et elles pourront vivre leur amours, dans la saison 4 elles se sont séparées parce qu'elles pouvaient pour avoir une relation a distance, mais la si elles sont a 2 dans la saison 5, elles pourraient réalisées leur rêve a 2 etc... sa serai bien, bref... Glee a était surtout former par leur anciens personnage, on c'est concentrait sur eux, on a suivit leur histoire et on les laissent pas !!! s'il vous plaît, je vous en prit faites le a New York, avec Santana et Brittany et tout les anciens s'il vous plaît, depuis le début on les suit et sa serait bien !!! Glee


Please please please!!!! Just make season five in NYC.
I won't continue to watch the show if it isn't. I love the original glee members
If they aren't in the show I won't be interested.


I think they should stick with both, if anything. This new crop of kids is Murphy's chance to get Glee right (you know, character/plot development and that good stuff).


I am sorry to the new cast, but the Glee has always been about those original characters we fell in love with. I don't care where it takes place, I just care about seeing more of Kurt, Rachel, Finn, Puck, Tina, Mercedes, Artie, Santanna, Brit, Mike, Sam, Quinn, Blaine. Those are the people that I want to watch.


The Show is called "GLEE" so why focus on characters that don't belong to a Glee club anymore? It'd be just awkward. Let's see how the new stories are developed for new viewers and fans who are falling inlove with the new cast and MAYBE create another show for the old cast in NY or wherever they want (where they include all the OLD cast).


there's no glee if there isn't the 13 original glee members such as Rachel, Mercedes, Tina, Quinn, Brittany, Santana, Finn, Kurt, Blaine, Puck, Artie, Mike, and Sam. oh, and also mr. shue, emma, and Sue. We need season 5 to be just about their lives and how they grew up.


Please just make it focused on New York, with all of the 13 original glee members! I miss seeing the old cast on a regular basis. I hate how season is about the stupid, boring new characters and we barely see any of the old cast except rachel and kurt. I really hate Marley because she sings way too damn much! I really glee season 5 takes the new approach and focus on all the old characters in New York! They should've done this for season 4. And also, what reilly said, life moves on and it's not about stupid high school


Definetly keep it in New York, the old cast is just too awesome to let go! I don't like the new cast :/ I don't think I'd be as interested if it wasnt with kurt and racheal. Plus I miss santana, Mercedes, and mike :D they were the best.

Glee Quotes

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
