Strap in Gleeks, it's gonna be a bumpy ride.

Discovery+ has announced that it has ordered a new three-part docuseries from Ample Entertainment going behind the scenes of Fox's groundbreaking and wildly popular teen musical TV show Glee.

According to reports, the docuseries will have access to key cast and crew members "who will share first-hand stories of their time on the comedy-drama series that ran for over 100 episodes."

The series will have never-heard-before stories from the Glee community, covering both the good -- and the bad -- parts about making the show.

Just a few of the controversies expected to be included in the docuseries are Cory Monteith's death from an accidental overdose during the show's run, Mark Salling getting arrested for and pleading guilty to possession of child sex abuse material and killing himself, and Naya Rivera's death by drowning after the show ended.

Of course, the docuseries will also cover the widely reported bullying and abuse Glee star Lea Michele unleashed on her costars. Glee actors from Rivera to Samantha Ware, to Chris Colfer, have all expressed that Michele was hard to work with on set and created a toxic work environment.

Glee, which followed a show choir at the fictional William McKinley High School in Lima, Ohio, also starred Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Dianna Agron, Amber Riley, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Heather Morris, and Darren Criss, and featured guest stars like Neil Patrick Harris, John Stamos, Britney Spears, Demi Lovato, Adam Lambert, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristin Chenoweth, and Idina Menzel.

It was created by Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan, and ran on Fox from 2009-2015. Glee was nominated for over 40 Emmys, winning four Primetime Emmys and two Creative Arts Emmys. The show also won four Golden Globes, and was nominated for three Grammys.
