"It's fantastic to be the first show picked up and that this underdog series, like its characters, will get the chance to keep singing," said executive producer Ryan Murphy in a statement. "There are so many more stories to tell. We're grateful for the incredible passion shown by everyone involved — the unbelievable fans, the cast, crew, our partners at the network and studio and even music artists and labels."

"The “Single Ladies” dance will probably haunt me for the rest of my life," Colfer -- who takes lead in the routine -- joked to "I will probably be forty and be doing it at Bar Mitzvahs! It look a lot of work, ‘cuz I’m not a dancer, I’ve never danced before except for like, in the bathroom at home when no one is looking."
