Glee was a breakout hit for Fox when it debuted in 2009. Though the show’s ratings started to drop after its second season, the musical dramedy was still considered by many as one the greatest TV series of its time. However, for some reason, Glee hasn’t gotten the Funko Pop! treatment yet, and that’s kind of bumming out millions of Glee fans, aka Gleeks, all over the world.
There’s actually an ongoing Change.org petition requesting Funko to make Pop! vinyl figures based on Glee. But since it was made two years ago — also two years after the series ended its six-season run in 2015 — the petition appears to have flown under the radar of a lot of fans. As of writing, the petition only has 650 signatures on it, so if you’re one of those who would love to own Funko Pop!’s in the likeness of Rachel Berry, Finn Hudson, and Quinn Fabray, among many others, feel free to sign the petition and share it as well.
“You know those vinyl figures that everyone loves? Right, they’re really cute! The problem is that Glee Funkos don’t exist, and all the Gleeks over the world would like to have one of them in their lives. So if you want Glee Funko Pop!’s, just sign here!!!,” read the description of the petition authored by Glee fan Carla Hudson from Spain.
Though it’s been over four years since Glee concluded, there’s still a possibility that Funko would eventually release a line of Pop! vinyl figures based on the series. After all, classic TV series like Friends, The Office, Miami Vice, Green Hornet, The Addams Family, and The Munsters got their first Funko Pop!’s several years after their respective finales aired.
Co-created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan, Glee follows the story of the fictitious William McKinley High School glee club, New Directions, which competes on the show choir competition circuit while its disparate members deal with social issues like sexuality, race, relationships, and teamwork. It stars Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, Mark Salling, and Jenna Ushkowitz, among many others.
All six seasons of Glee are currently streaming on Netflix.
