Sky One have announced that the next season of Glee will not air in the UK until January 2013.
The fourth season of the show – which features Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Naya Rivera, Amber Riley and more – will launch on FOX in America on 13 September 2012.
In a statement posted on its website, Sky said: “We originally thought that the majority of our customers would want to see Glee as soon as possible, but last year you gave us feedback about the constant breaks in scheduling (owing to one-off broadcasts of live sport and other events in the US) and told us you wanted a more consistent scheduling pattern.
“We listened to the feedback and have decided to begin showing Season 4 in January 2013, so we can play out in an unbroken run.”
Sky will however air the second season of spin-off show The Glee Project on Sky1 this autumn. The show will broadcast on Thursdays at 9pm in the Glee slot.
