Fox denied Ryan Murphy had a Glee spinoff in the works for Lea Michele yesterday afternoon – hours after the Radar report had spread like wildfire among Gleeks. Murphy had already announced he would honor the series’ two-season order in the wake of star Cory Monteith’s death, and that next season would be its last. Murphy had also said he had originally envisioned Glee’s series-final scene with Monteith and Lea Michele’s characters – a plan that was dashed when Monteith died of an accidental heroin and alcohol overdose last summer. Before the spinoff report broke out, there had been some speculation Murphy would focus the final season of Glee on Michele’s character moving forward after Finn’s death. Murphy, meanwhile, is at work on his pilot, Open, for HBO, creating a new character in order to add Cheyenne Jackson, as a series regular, playing a handsome meth addict; filming is set to begin in February.
