'Glee' Producer Brad Falchuk Open to 'Modern' Remake

Don't stop believing — because Glee might be back. In a new interview released on January 3, Glee showrunner and co-creator Brad Falchuk said he would "never say no" to bringing Glee back, but if It did happen, and he wanted to do something different.

Falchuk told The Hollywood Reporter that he wants a "modern" remake of "Glee ." "Is there a way to tell this story in a more modern way?" he asked. "So much of ' Glee' is really a shift from old ways of looking at representation to new ways of looking at representation. I would never say no, but I wonder what the point of doing that is - unless it makes money."

What would a Glee reboot look like?

In November 2022, Falchuk co -creator Ryan Murphy said that Glee should end after star Cory Monteith's death in 2013. Instead, the show continued for two more seasons.

"If I had to do it again, we would stop for a long time and probably not come back," he told stars Jenna Ushkowitz and Kay on their "This Is What You Really Miss" podcast Vin McHale. "You can't really recover from something like this. It wasn't a normal death because someone was sick and you could see them. It happened so fast and without any warning."

However, Murphy is now interested in bringing the show back, saying "there's been enough time" and has some ideas about the form it could take.

"Maybe we should really revisit it as a brand," he said at the time. "You know, should we reboot it in some way? Should we make it into a Broadway musical in some way? It's kind of like an interesting legacy that I'm interested in doing in a positive way after a hiatus for a while. Do it.”

What he learned from Glee

Falchuk went on to explain the lessons he learned from creating "Glee ," saying that the cast and crew "were not prepared for this level of success."

“I was young and it was a little overwhelming and a lot of us got caught up in our egos,” he recalls. "We were writing about high school, so it was hard not to regress. It was a crucible. At the same time, we were having a lot of fun and everyone was getting along. Things got messy, and then everyone got along again."

He went on to call the experience "chaotic," which also described his thoughts on returning to McKinley High School. "I never want to go back there, and then I'm like, 'Oh my gosh, I'd love to go back there,'" he quipped. "But what's the biggest lesson from that show? Take your ego out of everything and become an adult."
