Glee Project cancelled despite Glee’s renewal

Oxygen’s terrific competition series The Glee Project has officially been cancelled, even though the Fox series has been renewed for two more seasons. The network said in a statement:

“The Glee Project will not be returning to Oxygen but we are extremely proud of this series, which launched the careers of several talented individuals. The show had so much heart, and we thank Ryan Murphy and all of the creative talent who helped make the series a critical darling.”

The Hollywood Reporter notes that “A spokesman for the NBCUniversal-owned cable network reiterated that the decision has nothing to do with the sudden passing of Glee star Cory Monteith, who was found dead in his Vancouver hotel Saturday.”

The show’s future has been unclear since January, and an April report initially said it was cancelled until revising to say that the show might still be renewed.
