Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer will be back for Season Four of Glee, there’s no decision on more Terra Nova and House is still up in the air (why?).
These were the insights from FOX entertainment chief Kevin Reilly at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on the weekend.
Here were the main points from his appearance:
No decision. “Creatively it was hunting,” he said of a season that he later revealed he wished was more “consistent.” He added, “It was an exciting bet to take and I think it has proven that it was worthwhile.” He acknowledges he can’t drag his feet for too much longer given the complex production commitment and SPFX.
“There will not be a Glee spinoff… but [Ryan Murphy and his team have] an interesting idea that I think is going to give us something cool to dig into for next season,” he said. Since then cast members Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer have indicated they will return. The rest is a Spoiler you can read here.
Reilly admit he’s been avoiding making a decision, that its hard to imagine FOX without House. What he did reveal, beyond the fact that the series is not cheap to continue: “If it is the last year, it won’t be an unceremonious finish [for the series].” Cease and desist!
Reilly acknowledged that they “lose a lot of money on that show. At that rating, on that night [Fridays], it’s impossible to make money… and we’re not in the business of losing money.” No decision but try and guess…
“It’s very hard to imagine the show without Ryan [Seacrest],” he said, before stating that the rest is “a deal issue” and that there is “a tough negotiation” ahead.
