New Glee documentary will finally look at why the show is cursed

New Glee documentary will finally look at why the show is cursed

The behind-the-scenes secrets from Glee will be revealed very, very soon...

The curtain covering the real story behind Glee will be unveiled in an upcoming documentary series.

Discovery+ and ID have ordered a three-part docu-series about the hugely popular Fox musical series, where viewers will have access to cast and crew members who worked on the show, who will share their first-hand experiences and ups and downs of the production.

Glee was huge when it debuted in 2009.

Glee aired between 2009 and 2015, notching 121 episodes under its belt.

While the series warmed the hearts of millions in the US and across the globe, it was also shrouded in controversy which has led some people to believe it is cursed.

Mark Salling, who played the role of Puck, was arrested and pleaded guilty to possessing images of child sex abuse.

He was arrested in December 2015 after his girlfriend at the time informed the police about his collection of child pornography. He ended his own life in January 2018 at the age of 35 while awaiting sentencing.

Cory Monteith, who played quarterback Finn died of an accidental heroin overdose in July 2013 aged 31.

The third episode in season five, titled “The Quarterback” was filmed and aired in his memory, which also confirmed the death of Monteith’s character.

His real-life girlfriend Lea Michele, who portrayed his on-screen girlfriend, Rachel, was accused of bullying people on set.

In the aftermath of George Floyd’s death and the global Black Lives Matter protests in 2020, Lea’s former co-star Samantha Marie Ware accused the Funny Girl star of a number of ‘traumatic microaggressions’.

Lea responded to the accusations in an interview with The New York Times, in which she said she has grown since her Glee days.

“I have an edge to me. I work really hard. I leave no room for mistakes. That level of perfectionism, or that pressure of perfectionism, left me with a lot of blind spots.”

She added: “I really understand the importance and value now of being a leader. It means not only going and doing a good job when the camera’s rolling, but also when it’s not. And that wasn’t always the most important thing for me.”

Glee fans are eager to know what happened behind the scenes.

Years after the show ended, Naya Rivera, who portrayed the beloved cheerleader Santana Lopez, drowned while saving her then four-year-old son Josey during a boating accident.

There will be testimonials from the interviewees about the highs and lows from the production of the show.

In case you haven’t had a chance to watch Glee (where have you been?) the comedy-drama focused on a glee club at the fictional William McKinley High School. The series had a large cast which also included Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Heather Morris, Darren Criss and Melissa Benoist.

The series was created by Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story creator Ryan Murphy, along with his frequent collaborator and American Horror Story co-creator Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan.
