In the midst of its summer concert tour, Glee has added six to its writing staff for Season 3.
Allison Adler, Marti Noxon, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Michael Hitchcock, Matt Hodgson and Ross Maxwell will join Glee executive producers Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan in the writers’ room beginning Monday when work starts on Season 3.

Despite its ratings success and the intricacies involved in melding musical numbers into the show’s narrative, Glee has maintained a remarkably small writing staff. Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan have formed the core creative group, eschewing a traditional writers’ room.

The plan originally was for Glee to introduce additional writers midway through the recently completed second season, but with a production-heavy schedule involving music supervision and choreography as well as planning the summer concert tour, Murphy, Falchuk and Brennan wound up writing all 22 episodes, with Murphy and Falchuk also directing several installments.

Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter in May that Season 3 will focus on new freshman characters and that he planned to include more serialized stories.

“Last year you had the baby story line that everyone could follow and this year we didn’t do that,” he told THR. “Next year we’re going to be doing that more. What I have learned from this season is I think people want story arcs.”

Adding some writing staff sounds like a great thing. Do hope this leads to a better third season. Intrigued about those new characters and actual serialized arcs. Is it too much for a stronger sense of continuity?
