Gleeks who are worried about not having enough "Glee" during the four-month hiatus could breathe a little easier. Some sources told EW that there is a possibility that original content and re-runs are in the cards, the same thing that FOX had done during the break between the May pilot and the September run.
The cast of "Glee" will not return filming the back-nine episodes until early January because the musical show will only return with new episodes on April 13. The original content that the sources were talking about could be in the form of clips and music videos. Meanwhile, episode re-runs could be packed as a marathon. There is no official statement regarding this yet.
"Glee" wrapped its Fall season run on Wednesday, December 9 and would be back in April being attached to "American Idol". Regarding their decision to give the show a long break, FOX's VP of Strategic Program Planning and Research, Preston Beckman said, "The best news of all is that when it returns it's gonna be sitting behind American Idol. So it's not like we're putting it in a time period where it's gonna have to fight."
