Ryan Murphy: Writing a Britney Episode of 'Glee'!

Glee‘s Ryan Murphy is working on a Britney Spears-themed episode of the hit show!

The writer/creator told ET he’s in the middle of writing a Britney episode. Ryan also shared that the show will air a tribute episode after the Super Bowl next year, but he wouldn’t say who the episode honored!

ET asked if Michael Jackson was the artist whose music would be featured, and Ryan coyly answered, “Close!”

WHO DO YOU THINK the big tribute episode of Glee will honor?

    Hi, I’m french and since my english isn’t really good I didn’t really understand chat he said about MJ. I mean, does it mean that there’ll never be a MJ episode ?

  • TT

    Britney Spears is the BIGGEST teenager artist of ALL TIME so makes perfect sense.

    hope she inspires them

    get the walls of that school ready and ….. hit it one more time ………..

  • tc

    I think I’ll pass on this episode.

  • Jake

    Madonna part 2, MJ, Janet, Prince or a Whitney/Mariah episode. Please Skip Britney!

  • V

    I think it will be awesome episode. She was the best young female pop act back in the day. Everybody knows her music whether they love/d her or not. She was big no one can deny it. I really look forward to it!

  • Pradalicious

    Imagining Kurt in Baby One More Time outfit, Fin in Oops I Did It Again and obviously Rachel in Im A Slave For You! OMG

  • Flairfive

    I was all excited I thought they meant the character Brittney. She needs her own episode more then the former singer.

    No, Claire. It means that guessing MJ was a close (good) guess as to who it would be. This could mean maybe another Jackson (Janet or Jackson 5)) or another legend entertainer who died in same way (Elvis) or just someone really big like MJ. It does mean that it probably will not be MJ, but only for this after Super Bowl episode. Hope I have not confused you more ;)

    I think it’s Janet, it’s suppose to air after the super bowl. They asked if it was MJ and he said close, which could mean Janet. Janet and the super bowl, 2004 wordrobe malfunction.

    This will be awesome. I don’t like Glee that much but I will watch this episode :)
    Britney songs are perfect for a teenager musical!

  • j.ryan

    it’s not gonna be as good as the madonna episode because britney had to ask for it.

  • Amanda

    Eh, not really looking forward to it. I love Britney, and Glee but I don’t think there should be a Britney themed episode. Maybe a few of her songs like the lady gaga/Kiss ep but not the whole one. -.-
    Since he said it was close to MJ maybe it will be all the Jackson’s. Jackson 5, Janet, and Micheal. Or completely different. *shrugs*

    And into the Gutter Goes Glee. Try using some Actual Talent, people. Not a useless-to-the-planet skank.

    Britney is the princess of pop thats a big deal, Thats why they do a Britney episode!

  • Sean

    How about a Cyndi Lauper episode? If anyone deserves some respect from the GLTB Community’s definitely Cyndi! Would love to see a whole episode with the Unusual Girl…

  • ella

  • Amanda

    @Sean: Ew. I’d skip that episode. If I hear “Girl’s just wanna have fun” one more time I am going puke.
