As one of the two winners of The Glee Project, Damian McGinty has really been the only consistent face from the series so far. With the exception of runner-up Lindsay showing up in the season premiere, McGinty is the only one promised an appearance in the series who has shown up so far. Now, it seems that the singer/actor will in fact be staying a bit longer.
Mark Malkin from E! released the news yesterday that McGinty will in fact stay on the series past his initial episode arc. Originally, his character was supposed to depart in the season’s tenth episode, airing in January, but that apparently will no longer be the case.
There is, however, no word on how long McGinty will be staying on the series. His original episode arc was seven episodes, but some of the hours he has so far appeared in were for only a brief glance, or he did not even receive actual lines. Whether or not the crew felt this was unfair most likely has lead to his extension, not to mention positive reactions from fans have also fueled it as well.
Glee will air two more episodes in its usual timeslot of Tuesdays at 8PM on FOX, before hitting a quick hiatus until it returns in January.
