    The brainless future of America gets two more years of Glee but this all-time great show is dying.

    Godspeed, Fry.

    I hope this is not the real end of the series, and that there will be more direct-to-DVDs in the future, similar to what happened after Fox first cancelled the show.

    Thank you Comedy Central for bringing it for a few more years.

  • DenverDean

    Basically between direct-to-DVD and Comedy Central – the number of additional episodes doubled. That was a great gift to go from 72 to 140. Thanks CC for 52 more episodes. If MG believes more stories can be told, then I would anticipate another Direct to DVD or streaming batch.

    I know that it’s the final season so it probably doesn’t matter what night it’s on, but I dot understand why they don’t leave it in Thursdays like it been most of its run on Comedy Central

  • Luke

    I think it’s ridiculous to expect anyone to save this show for a second time. Shows are lucky enough to get saved once, but twice is too much. It’s had a great run, just let it die.

  • Phil

    Should bring it back to FOX and pair it up with The Simpsons!

  • Mike

    Will it get a proper series finale

  • JD

    Someone needs to knock on TBS or Adult Swim door right now.

  • The 47th

    Oh woah, I didn´t realize the number of episodes was so high already.

    If anything, the only viable option could be an streaming platform like Netflix. But I won’t hold my breath…more movies could be another option, though.
