Co-Creator Brad Falchuk Lands HUGE New TV Deal — Is He Leaving Glee?

Glee co-creator Brad Falchuk has inked an impressive new deal with 20th Century Fox Television. But before you start to freak out, rest assured: This does not mean that Brad is leaving Glee.

The Hollywood Reporter shares the news that Brad — who created Glee alongside Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan — has landed a three-year deal with 20th Century. As part of the deal, he’ll continue to serve as co-showrunner for both Glee and American Horror Story (which he also co-created with Ryan). The show’s respective networks, Fox and FX, are both owned by 20th Century. This deal will also allow Brad to develop new projects for both network and cable TV.

Calling Bran an “enormously talented writer, producer, and director,” 20th TV chairman and CEO Dana Walden says she couldn’t be happier that Brad will be continuing to work with her studio full-time.

“While this deal ensures he'll continue to help guide those important series, we think he has even more hits up his sleeve,” she adds.

While this is fantastic news for Brad, we can’t help but wonder if all the time he’ll be spending creating all those new hits will give him less time to focus on Glee. The show has already been renewed for both Seasons 5 and 6, but after the unexpected death of Cory Monteith (Finn) this summer some people are speculating that Fox might modify that decision and choose to end the series after this season.

Even if that is the case, however, we’re still going to have a number of Brad Falchuk-created projects headed our way. And that is always good news.
