'Glee' set to become a live stage musical

Fox network executive Gary Newman has revealed that the hit musical series 'Glee' is currently under negotiation to be adapted for the stage.

The show has already spawned an incredibly successful live tour and Newman told attendees at the 21st Century Fox's Investor Day event that a live stage musical is being planned: "We launched a live stage business with a sold-out arena concert tour in 2011, and now a live stage musical is in the works. And two more seasons of the show were ordered by Fox."

'Glee' will return to television in September for the fifth season although Kevin Reilly, Fox's president of entertainment, recently confessed that the sixth series will probably be the last:

"I would not anticipate it goes on. Never say never, but there’s two very clear arcs to get to there and conclude. If we discover a new crop of kids and there’s some breakout, who knows. But right now, it’s being treated as two seasons [and then done].”

Cory Monteith, who played the role of Finn Hudson, was found dead in a Canadian hotel room in mid-July and his colleague and girlfriend Lea Michele dedicated her Teen Choice Award win to him last night (August 11). In her acceptance speech, she said: "I wanted to dedicate this award to Cory, for all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise that with your love we're gonna get through this together."
