'The Glee Project' Renewed for Season 2, Begins AuditionsMonday, September 26, 2011
Talented Gleeks who dream of appearing on their favorite show now have another chance at stardom.
Oxygen announced today that it has renewed the sleeper summer reality hit 'The Glee Project' for a second season, and launched its second nationwide talent search. Last month, both Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen won seven-episode arcs on 'Glee' as Things didn't turn out too badly for the two-runners up, either: both Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell won two-episode guest spots on the Fox hit as well.
Though 'The Glee Project' debuted soft, the show grew over the summer and went out big -- more than 1 million viewers tuned in to the August finale.
