Official ‘Glee’ Novel Series Announced

Posted by Rob on Jun-09-2010 under News

Glee - The BeginningAre you wondering how Fox will keep Glee fresh in the viewers’ heads before their return to TV for season 2? One way will be with a new series of officially licensed novels. EW’s Shelf Life just announced that book publisher Little, Brown Books for Young Readers has freshly inked a deal with Fox, and the first novel in the series will be on shelves come August. It will be titled, “Glee – The Beginning“, and will be a prequel to the show in which we get to see more into the lives of the characters prior to joining New Directions. It will try to explore some of the back stories of the characters in ways that we haven’t haven’t gotten to see on the small screen, and will include a double-sided poster.

So while the novel series may be lacking the show’s signature music, their original stories will try to hold fans over until the show starts up again. Besides, it will be nice to have something to read in between episodes! Current speculation is that some of the Glee writers may have a hand in the book’s creation, which would definitely be a good thing. In most cases with licensed TV novels, the stories must stay fairly true to the canon, so nothing major can take place. The books must leave characters the same way they found them, so not much development can take place without deviating from the plot of the TV series. However, if they can do it well, I think a novel series could be very successful and more importantly, hopefully the fans will love it.
