It’s sad, but true: Glee has to come to an end eventually. Fortunately, we get to put off saying goodbye to Glee until early 2015, but it doesn’t mean we aren’t hoping for an amazing final season.
And Jane Lynch? She’s in the same boat as we are. The woman responsible for bringing Sue Sylvester to life has high expectations for Season 6, which she recently shared with OK Magazine.
“I hope that every episode we have left is an event that we’ll look back on them and go, ‘Oh, wasn’t that a great episode?’” she said at Fox’s Girl’s Night Out panel on Monday. “I hope that the message is clear and uplifting and honest.”
While Glee can often be just a wee bit unrealistic (and, okay, the continuity isn’t always the greatest), what the show has always done well is honesty. And if we know the show’s writers as well as we think we do, Jane will definitely get her wish. In other words: Keep tissues handy!
“Reading the pilot, I knew it was special but I didn’t know it would be such a huge audience,” Jane added. “I knew we would have a rabid following. I knew it because I know how music affects me. I know how being part of a group where you belong is important, especially for kids. So I knew we would have kids who would be locked into it. They would lock into it and we would have fans but I didn’t expect it would be the huge worldwide phenomenon it has become.”
In the past five years, Glee has spawned a 3D movie, a couple of sold out tours, crazy merchandise sales, and has launched the careers of several talented actors and musicians we can’t remember living without. Phenomenon? Check.
