No more 'Party' time for Jane Lynch

The "Party" is over for the ever-busy Jane Lynch.

Lynch will be a regular on FOX's new series "Glee" in the fall, and as a consequence she's had to part ways with the Starz comedy "Party Down." Starz was hoping that "Glee's" schedule would let Lynch moonlight a little, but that didn't pan out.

"It looks like I can't do the second season," Lynch tells Variety. "So I'm not happy about that all ... but I'm in 'Glee,' so I'm thrilled about that."

Lynch missed the last couple episodes of "Party Down's" first season while filming the pilot for "Glee." Jennifer Coolidge guest-starred in her place, but there's no word yet on whether she could become a more permanent replacement for Lynch.

The second season of "Party Down," about a group of wannabe and never-really-were actors working as cater-waiters in Los Angeles, is likely to premiere next spring.
