The show focuses on a teacher who wants nothing more than for his high school glee club to make it to the National competition.
Though the show was tentatively scheduled to air this summer, Fox has instead decided to try something different.
A single preview episode will air on May 19th, following an episode of American Idol. The show will then not air the rest of its season until the Fall.
"An ambitious and unique show such as Glee deserves an ambitious and unique kickoff," said Fox chairman Peter Liguori. "We also wanted to take advantage of the huge 'American Idol' promotional platform to launch the marketing campaign in May."
