television writer Ashley Ray-Harris tweeted that delightThe cast and crew members who will be introduced in the documentary, said:

The And that’s what you really miss podcast hosts previously expressed their thoughts on the new docuseries. Talk to buzz feedJenna expressed that only the cast “knew what really happened” during that time in their lives, explaining:
“In terms of the Discovery+ documentary, at least for me, doing the podcast was more important because we were the people who were there. And we are the ones going through this. And we know what really happened. So, you know, for me, it’s more appropriate to actually be the one to share my experiences when people are sharing experiences that they don’t have.”
Kevin then added:
“I also think another reason we wanted to do this is that with the pandemic and TikTok, there has been a strange resurgence of Glee. A whole new generation of people have found it. Like, the kids weren’t alive when the show started. we talked to C. D. ryan [Murphy] about that too, about how amazing and what opportunities are available to everyone. They don’t necessarily stick to everything, such as drama or the bad things people will say in the press because they’re just seeing this with new eyes.
They are not the only actors who have blown up the archives! Silently AKA Sam Evans on delight told Elvis Duran Program back in August:
“I think anyone who knows anything about that show and has experienced it has nothing to do with that from what I know. We are all really close and quite like family. No one knows anything about that. I think it’s a bit like just trying to get people to watch something. I don’t think anyone really knows anything about it. I think it’s like a tabloid trying to sell.”
We’ll have to see what comes out of this show once it’s successful explore+ on January 16, but it seems the cast isn’t too excited about the plot. What do YOU think, reader Perezcious? Will you be following the documentary series? Let us know in the comments below!
