The second season of the musical comedy-drama television series Glee originally aired between September 21, 2010 and May 24, 2011 on Fox in the United States. The 22-episode season was produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ryan Murphy Television, with executive producers Dante Di Loreto and series co-creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, with the other series co-creator, Ian Brennan, as co-executive producer.

The series features the New Directions glee club at the fictional William McKinley High School in the town of Lima, Ohio. Season two follows the club through local and regional show choir competitions to the national competition in New York City, while its members deal with relationship, sexuality and social issues. The central characters are glee club director Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison), cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch), guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays), and glee club members Artie Abrams (Kevin McHale), Brittany Pierce (Heather Morris), Finn Hudson (Cory Monteith), Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer), Mercedes Jones (Amber Riley), Noah "Puck" Puckerman (Mark Salling), Quinn Fabray (Dianna Agron), Rachel Berry (Lea Michele), Santana Lopez (Naya Rivera) and Tina Cohen-Chang (Jenna Ushkowitz). Will's wife Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig) and Kurt's father Burt (Mike O'Malley) round out the list of main characters.

Though many individual episodes received positive reviews from critics, full-season reviews were mixed. The musical performances from the second season expanded on the success of the first season, with the show releasing five soundtrack albums and over one hundred digital singles. The cast decisively broke the record for most charted songs by an act in the 52-year history of the Billboard Hot 100 with 156 appearances through the end of its second season. Two singles, "Teenage Dream" and "Loser Like Me", were the first to have over 200,000 downloads in their first week of release in the US, and charted in the top ten in the US and Canada; the former has been certified gold in the US. The season was nominated for twelve Emmy Awards, five Golden Globe Awards, five Satellite Awards and over fifty other awards. It is being accompanied by three DVD releases: Glee – Season 2, Volume 1 featuring episodes one through ten, Glee – Season 2, Volume 2 featuring episodes eleven through twenty-two, and Glee – The Complete Second Season.

Production

Showrunner Ryan Murphy (pictured) wrote and directed several episodes.

The season was produced by 20th Century Fox Television and Ryan Murphy Television, and aired on Fox in the US. The executive producers were Dante Di Loreto, and series creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, with Murphy serving as showrunner and co-creator Ian Brennan acting as co-executive producer.[23][24] All episodes were written by Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan. Murphy and Falchuk directed three episodes each, while other episodes were directed by Alfonso Gomez-Rejon, Eric Stoltz, Adam Shankman, Bradley Buecker, Carol Banker, Paris Barclay, Tate Donovan and Tim Hunter. Each episode cost $3.2 million–$3.8 million to produce, an increase of 20 percent on the first season.[24]

The season began airing on September 21, 2010, in the 8 pm (ET) timeslot on Tuesdays.[25] A special episode aired after Super Bowl XLV on February 6, 2011.[26] Fox planned to move the show to the 9 pm time slot on Wednesdays following the Super Bowl,[27] however later revised its schedule, leaving Glee on Tuesdays in order to concentrate on building up its weaker Wednesday and Thursday line-ups.[28] Episode eighteen, "Born This Way", became Glee's first 90 minute episode. Its runtime was extended from the standard 60 minutes to allow the inclusion of more musical numbers.[29] The season concluded on May 24, 2011, moved to the 9 pm (ET) timeslot following the American Idol finale.[30] The commissioning of a third season was announced on May 23, 2010.[31]

Murphy intended the second season to accentuate focus on formerly minor characters, particularly Santana, Brittany and Mike. He commented, "Everyone gets a chance to shine this season. Instead of going bigger and overstuffing Season 2, which people would expect, we’re going under it. We'll pick up on the stories of our main cast, but we’re also going to spend time on the support characters. Everyone gets their moment."[32] Not all of his plans came to fruition; in July 2010, Murphy claimed that glee club co-captains Finn and Rachel would remain in a relationship throughout the season,[33] however this was abandoned in favor of a love-triangle storyline to generate conflict.[34] One unintended development was the emergence of Kurt as a central character—his role grew in prominence as a result of the writers' desire to do justice to the gay bullying storyline.[29]

Reluctant to produce too many tribute episodes, Murphy limited the season to two:[35] the Spears tribute "Britney/Brittany",[36][37] and "Rumours", the series' first episode to pay tribute to an album, Fleetwood Mac's Rumours.[38] The fifth episode, "The Rocky Horror Glee Show" served as an additional homage to The Rocky Horror Show.[39] Although Murphy had planned to showcase original songs in Glee as early as October 2009,[40] they featured for the first time during the second season, after he found a way to include the concept organically, in the form of a glee club assignment.[29][41]

Cast

Glee cast members: (clockwise from back left) Salling, McHale, Michele, Agron, Riley, Ushkowitz, Colfer and Monteith.

The twelve main cast members from season one returned for season two: Matthew Morrison as glee club director Will Schuester, Jane Lynch as cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester, Jayma Mays as guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury, Jessalyn Gilsig as Will's former wife Terri Schuester and Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Jenna Ushkowitz as glee club members Quinn Fabray, Kurt Hummel, Artie Abrams, Rachel Berry, Finn Hudson, Mercedes Jones, Noah "Puck" Puckerman and Tina Cohen-Chang, respectively.[23] Heather Morris and Naya Rivera, who portrayed the formerly recurring roles of Brittany Pierce and Santana Lopez, were promoted to series regulars,[42] as was Mike O'Malley as Kurt's father Burt Hummel.[43]

Supporting cast members Harry Shum, Jr. and Ashley Fink had increased roles as New Directions members Mike Chang and Lauren Zizes.[44][45] Two recurring cast members from season one did not return: Dijon Talton's glee club member Matt Rutherford was written out as having transferred,[46] and Patrick Gallagher's football coach Ken Tanaka was replaced by Dot-Marie Jones as Shannon Beiste.[47][48] Returning secondary characters included Iqbal Theba as Principal Figgins, Stephen Tobolowsky as former glee club director Sandy Ryerson, Romy Rosemont as Finn's mother Carole Hudson, Max Adler as school bully Dave Karofsky, Jonathan Groff as Rachel's ex-boyfriend Jesse St. James, and Kristin Chenoweth as former glee club star April Rhodes.[38][49] The season introduced several new recurring characters; Charice appeared as Sunshine Corazon, a foreign exchange student from the Philippines and a rival to Rachel;[50] John Stamos played dentist Carl Howell, a love interest for Emma;[51] Chord Overstreet was cast as transfer student Sam Evans;[52][53] Cheyenne Jackson played Dustin Goolsby, the coach of rival glee club Vocal Adrenaline;[54] Darren Criss appeared as Blaine Anderson, lead singer of rival glee club the Dalton Academy Warblers,[55] and Gwyneth Paltrow played substitute teacher Holly Holliday.[56]

Meat Loaf and Barry Bostwick, who both starred in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, appeared in Glee's Halloween Rocky Horror tribute episode,[57] playing right-wing television station managers and colleagues of Sue.[58] Adam Kolkin portrayed an eight-year old Kurt in the third episode of the season,[59][60] and in the seventh episode, kindergarten-aged actors portraying child versions of New Directions were featured.[61] Sue Sylvester's mother Doris Sylvester was also introduced this season, played by Carol Burnett.[62] Journalist Katie Couric made a guest appearance as herself when she interviewed Sue Sylvester during "The Sue Sylvester Shuffle".[63]

A reality series featuring open auditions for the show was intended to air on Fox in advance of the season,[64][65] but was cancelled due to Murphy's desire to concentrate on the main series, and fear that the distraction of the reality show may damage Glee.[66] The idea was picked up by Oxygen, and The Glee Project is now set to air in June 2011. The winner will receive a multi-episode guest-starring role in Glee's third season.[67]

Music

Darren Criss (pictured) made his vocal debut on a cover of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream", which attained the highest first-week sales of any Glee song.

Glee's second season saw a shift toward covering more Top 40 songs than the first, in an effort to appeal more to the 18–49 demographic. Having used 2010 songs such as Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" and Cee Lo Green's "Forget You", music supervisor PJ Bloom commented, "We're using songs on the show the same time they're charting as new hits." He described the process behind selecting songs, clearing rights, recording, and filming numbers as taking as little as a few weeks to complete. Producer Adam Anders revealed that production and planning even occurs before rights for songs are cleared, as Glee's creators are offered listens of upcoming songs in advance by publishers and record labels.[68]

The extended play (EP) Glee: The Music, The Rocky Horror Glee Show was released mid-October 2010 to accompany the fifth episode.[69] Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album, featuring winter holiday-themed songs, was released on November 9, 2010, and Glee: The Music, Volume 4, featuring recordings from the first half of the season, was released at the end of that month.[70] An additional EP tied to the Super Bowl tribute episode was planned but never came to fruition; Glee: The Music, Volume 5, featuring recordings from that Super Bowl episode through the Regionals competition episode, was released in early March 2011.[71][72] Another soundtrack album, released on April 19, 2011, features the Dalton Academy Warblers: Glee: The Music Presents the Warblers.[73] The final CD accompanying the season, Glee: The Music, Volume 6, was released on May 23, 2011.[74]

Second season musical releases attained some chart success. Glee: The Music, The Rocky Horror Glee Show peaked at number six on the Billboard 200 with 48,000 copies sold. It marked the lowest debut and sales for the cast in the United States,[75] but the highest position ever reached for a Rocky Horror album.[76] Glee: The Music, The Christmas Album and Glee: The Music, Volume 5 both peaked at number one, in Canada and Australia respectively;[77][78] the highest charting album in the US was Glee: The Music Presents the Warblers at number two.[79] The Christmas album was certified platinum in the US,[80] and Glee: The Music, Volume 4 has nearly achieved double platinum certification in Australia.[81] The cast's cover of "O Holy Night" debuted at number one on the Holiday Digital Songs chart.[82] The highest charting single was the cast's original song "Loser Like Me" which debuted at number six on the Billboard Hot 100.[83] The single sold 210,000 downloads in that week, the largest after the Cast's cover of Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream", which sold 214,000 downloads its first week in the US, and beat the previous first-week sales record of 177,000 held by debut single "Don't Stop Believin'", which had hit number four on the Hot 100.[84][85] "Empire State of Mind" marked the highest first-day sales of any Glee song at the time with 106,000 downloads in the US over the week following its release.[86][87]

The record for most appearances by a group on the Billboard Hot 100, previously set by The Beatles, was broken when six songs from Glee: The Music, Volume 4 debuted on the chart the week of October 16, 2010. This feat also placed the cast third overall among all artists, behind James Brown and Elvis Presley.[88] Four songs debuted on November 18, 2010, which pushed the number of appearances to ninety-three, surpassing Brown's accomplishment to land at second.[89] On February 16, 2011, it was announced that Glee had increased its Hot 100 appearances to 113 songs, therefore beating Elvis and now has the Most Hot 100 entries.[90] The season's cover versions had a positive effect on some of the original recording artists. Following the broadcast of "Britney/Brittany", sales of the Spears songs covered increased by 35,000 units, with "Stronger" rising by 1,160 percent, and her greatest hits album increasing by 413 percent.[24]

Reception

Critical response

While Metacritic gave the season a Metascore—a weighted average based on the impression of 11 critical reviews—of 76/100, signifying generally favorable reviews, this score is based on reviews dated September and October of 2010, and reflective of the first few episodes only.[91] The season as a whole received mixed reviews from critics who covered the show over the course of the season. Robert Canning of IGN wrote that the "New York" season finale "was a decent close to an enjoyable season", while The Atlantic's Meghan Brown called it "an uneven end to an uneven season", and her colleague Kevin Fallon said that season two was "undeniably frustrating" but "there was still ample reason to tune in and enjoy".[92][93] Anthony Benigno of The Faster Times gave the season a "C+", but noted that he was "an easy grader".[94] The A.V. Club's Todd VanDerWerff gave the season a slightly better "B−", and stated: "The season opened and closed strong, but the middle section was mushy and filled with plenty of episodes that just didn’t work."[95] Brett Berk of Vanity Fair summed up as follows: "The quality of Glee’s second season has been something like the topography of Utah, or the acting career of Amanda Peet—blandly passable and relying on its good looks, but stumbling occasionally upon unfathomable idiosyncrasy, whose presence is at once baffling, frightening, and a bit melancholy—in a good way." [96]

Several episodes drew complaints from advocacy groups. The Parents Television Council named "Britney/Brittany", "Blame It on the Alcohol" and "Sexy" the worst shows of their respective weeks of broadcast, due to their overt sexual content.[97] "Sexy" was also criticized by the children's charity Kidscape for the "wholly inappropriate" inclusion of a song by convicted sex offender Gary Glitter.[98] The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation objected to the use of the pejorative term "tranny" in "The Rocky Horror Glee Show",[99] and "The Substitute" was ill-received by the National Alliance on Mental Illness for its humorous depiction of bipolar disorder.[100]

Ratings

A January 2011 feature in The Hollywood Reporter asserted that Glee had become the most-watched program of U.S.-origin in the UK.[24]
