With the news coming in just last week that Glee was getting renewed on Fox for another season, things have already been heating up for the upcoming episodes. Fox has completed most of the second half of it’s freshman season, which starts up again in April and they are now looking at the fans to be part of a few episodes next season.
According to a recent press release from the network, the show will be holding a nation-wide open casting call for a few parts in the upcoming season.
GLEE has also launched the acting and singing careers of its young, talented cast, and turned them into international sensations. Replicating and expanding on the process used to discover the stars from Season One, the series’ executive producers will begin a nationwide casting search this February to fill three new roles that will be added to the show’s second season.
Building upon the show’s incredibly supportive community of GLEEks and with the hope of bringing fans even closer to the series, auditions will be open to amateur individuals as well as professionals between the ages of 16-26, and all hopefuls will be able to submit auditions online. Additional details to be announced soon, please check www.fox.com/glee for updates.
This unique casting search and process will be chronicled in a multi-part special that will air leading up to the premiere of the series’ second season in fall 2010 on FOX, and the new cast members will be revealed in the premiere episode.
The site doesn’t have much up as to details just yet, but while there, you can check out some of the audition tapes from the current cast, and see what it is that got them the job.
Glee returns to Fox with all-new episodes on Tuesday, April 13 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).
