Glee's "The Power of Madonna" episode, which broke tradition by focusing entirely on the Queen of Pop's hits, earned Fox's cult show the second-best ratings of its on-air tenure and some words of praise from its iconic subject. Show creator Ryan Murphy is now revealing his intention to return to the Madonna catalog for a second time, telling Access Hollywood , "We're doing a sequel to the Madonna [episode]." Murphy wouldn't say when the next all-Madge affair would air, but hinted that it'll likely arrive next season.
Madonna, a self-proclaimed Gleek, gave her blessing to the high school musical when the show plotted its first episode devoted to her music — an episode built around the theme of female empowerment that featured coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) remaking her legendary "Vogue" video shot for shot. In fact, Madonna is such a fan of the show, rumor has it she'll potentially make a cameo. "I can't say," Murphy responded when asked if Madonna will guest star on Glee. "But she's sort of the muse of our show, I think now. She loves the show and has supported it. She gets the show is about arts education and so she's very supportive about that."
"The Power of Madonna" soundtrack connected with fans so strongly, the album topped the Billboard 200. For more on Glee's obsession with Madonna, check out our video with stars Lea Michele, Jenna Ushkowitz, Chris Colfer and Amber Riley talking about their favorite Material Girl tracks.
