Glee has been given an unexpected third season pick-up, it has been confirmed.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the musical comedy - which recently became the top scripted show among adult viewers - has impressed Fox bosses.

"In just one year, Glee has transcended the television landscape and emerged as a global pop culture phenomenon,” said Peter Rice, Fox's entertainment chairman.

"Everything about Glee - from the concept to the characters to the marketing - has been innovative and risky, but with [series creator] Ryan Murphy tapping into the zeitgeist, the risk has paid off with this truly remarkable series," added Kevin Reilly, the network's entertainment president.

"Glee has one of the most active, devoted fan bases I've ever seen, and we couldn’t be more thrilled to give Gleeks a third season of their favourite show."

Meanwhile, Ryan Murphy said of the show's success: "It's been a whirlwind year - from shooting the pilot to performing at the White House to the concert tour that began last week - and yet we all feel like we've just begun this amazing musical journey. We think our Gleeks worldwide are going to love what we’ll have in store for them in seasons two and three."
