"Glee" has been renewed for not one, but two more seasons!

"Glee debuted as the first and only successful musical comedy series on television, and more than four years later, it continues to defy genres, break new ground and have a significant impact on popular culture,” Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said in a statement. “Week in and week out, Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan, Dante DiLoreto and the entire Glee team deliver a series that not only delights and surprises fans, but also inspires them to talk about, share, debate and engage with the show -- and I’m absolutely thrilled to have them on board for another two seasons.”

"Glee's" renewal doesn't exactly come as a surprise, but the double season pick up certainly is.

Longtime star Lea Michele tweeted about "Glee's" renewal:

This isn't the first time Fox has done a double pickup: Seasons three and four of "Glee" were also renewed at once in 2010.

"Glee," which stars Michele, Chris Colfer, Jane Lynch, Matthew Morrison and more, is currently in its fourth season and though viewership has dwindled, the series recently returned to the spotlight due to a controversial school shooting episode.
