The cancellation was actually due to the late renewal of “Glee” by Fox, making it too late to run a third season of the reality competition.
“‘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 network said in a statement. “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 Glee Project” was a reality competition that had winners appear as major arcs on “Glee.” The next two seasons of “Glee” got April renewals. Because of this, the reality show would not have been able to air for at least another 18 months.
