Ryan Murphy is considering a Glee reboot

Ryan Murphy is considering a Glee reboot

Could a return to McKinley High be on the horizon?

A return to McKinley High School's Glee club isn't impossible according to Ryan Murphy who has teased the possibility of a reboot of his hit musical series.

Glee aired between 2009 and 2015, notching 121 episodes and six seasons under its belt.

In case you haven’t had a chance to watch Glee (seriously, where have you been?) the comedy-drama focused on a glee club at the fictional William McKinley High School.

The series had a large cast which also included Matthew Morrison, Lea Michele, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Heather Morris, Darren Criss and Melissa Benoist.

The series was created by Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story creator Ryan Murphy, along with his frequent collaborator and American Horror Story co-creators Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.

In a recent interview with former Glee stars McHale and Ushkowitz for their podcast And That’s What You REALLY Missed, Murphy reflected on the show’s ‘interesting legacy’ and suggested that a reboot could join his massive slate of upcoming projects.

“I’m at the phase now with the show where it’s like, well, there’s been enough time. Like, maybe we should really re-examine it as a brand. You know, should we do a reboot of it in some way? Should we do a Broadway musical of it in some way?” he said.

“It’s sort of like an interesting legacy that I’m interested in doing in a positive way after sort of pausing for a while. But I don’t know. I just love what it says and what it did. And there will never be in my life another Glee, anything close to it, in terms of me, feeling so close to it.”

In the same podcast, Murphy - who once had his own stint in singing - also explained how the show came to be.

He met his future collaborator Ian Murphy at a gym where he was given the initial pilot script for Glee. "Like serendipity, I went to the gym and I was in a towel, and a guy went up and handed me a script and he said, ‘I had a feeling you were in show choir; am I right?’ And I was like, ‘Yeah.’ And he said, ‘My friend wrote this script, and you should read it.’”

While Murphy considers a Glee reboot, the show's legacy will be the focus of an upcoming documentary series which will tell the 'real' story behind the show.

Discovery+ and ID have ordered a three-part docu-series about the landmark series, where viewers will see former cast and crew members share their first-hand experiences and ups and downs of the production, as per Deadline..
