Sing those praises, Gleeks: "Glee" has been renewed for Season 4. Joining the musical comedy are early orders of two more Fox series: Zooey Deschanel's "New Girl" and "Raising Hope."

"Over the past season, 'New Girl' has become the hottest new appointment series for young adults; 'Raising Hope' has established itself as one of the smartest and most unique offbeat comedies on television; and 'Glee' has continued its success as a genre-defying, global cultural phenomenon,” Fox president Kevin Reilly said in a statement. "All three of these comedies add a fresh and distinctive flavor to our Tuesday nights, and I’m really happy to bring them back to our air next season."

"Glee" returns with new episodes on Tues., April 10 at 8 p.m. ET with guest star Matt Bomer, followed by new episodes of "New Girl" and "Raising Hope."

Graduation is right around the corner for many of McKinley High School's most talented New Directions members, but don't fret, they'll be sticking around. Plans for a proposed spinoff were nixed in 2011, keeping Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith around for Season 4. What will happen to the characters after graduation? Michele took to Twitter to express her hopes.
