‘Glee' reveals second season changes at Comic-Con
Tuesday 27 July 2010
Ryan Murphy, the creator of
Glee, was at the hit show's Comic-Con panel on Sunday with members of the cast, and he let the audience know of the switch in direction the show will take for the second season.
The second season will be more intimate, he said, with more time dedicated to the characters, such as Artie (Kevin McHale) and Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), who were at the presentation to answer questions along with Amber Riley who plays Mercedes and Chris Colfer who plays Kurt.
There will be another Madonna tribute episode and a "hallucinogenic" episode devoted to Britney Spears, despite Mr. Schuester's objections, featuring character Brittany (Heather Morris), a Cheerio or cheerleader.
Murphy also unveiled the idea for a Rocky Horror Picture Show-themed show during season two, so audiences can expect a "Timewarp" number. But overall, the show plans for fewer musical numbers - down from eight to five per show.
More relationships will break up and new ones will emerge, including Kurt getting a boyfriend and possibly Brittany and Santana, per fans' suggestions. More family members will appear including Rachel's gay dads, Artie's mom and Brittany's smart sister.
The show returns to US television on September 21.
