The Savages is an American musical comedy-drama fanfiction series written, produced, and directed by REBƎLReloaded, creator of Glee: Make It or Break It and Glee: Los Angeles; the series first aired on May 10, 2015, a Mother's Day exclusive. It focuses on a group  of regenades, known for their notoriety, unusual behavior, and diversity, who oppose the social and political corruption of James A. Mathers High School. The members are called The Savages, which consist of a president, vice president, and secretary.

The series was created by REBELReloaded - each character is based on users from Glee Wiki, and others are not. In comparison to his previous Glee fanfictions, musical covers from artists are used. However, the series focuses strongly on an edgier sound - hip-hop, rock, and pop.

A myriad of special actors have appeared in the series, most specifically Cameron Diaz, Ben Affleck, and Vin Diesel, and a very special appearance from rapper Nicki Minaj.

So far, the first season recieved very positive reviews from fans, who praised its edgier nature, the music, characters and storylines.


The concept of this series reflects on the reckless behavior of the users on Glee Wiki. Users are more prone to resist the Glee Wiki rules, state their opinions in an intimidating way. The characters of the series are also based on the personalities of the people whose characters are based off of them. 


Similar to Trae's numerous amounts of Glee spin-off series, The Savages includes covers from musical artists. The series, however, advocates an edgier sound and setting. Hip-hop artists such as Missy Elliott and Kanye West are used in the songs. The first song to be released from The Savages is "Hard" by Rihanna. The singles from the first episode, The Mafia, were released on the same day as its episode premiere. On May 20, 2015, the singles from second episode, The Devil's Protégé, were released.

In contrast to the Glee spin-offs, there are explicit versions to the singles. Since the series is for more mature audiences, there are explicit and amended versions ot mos of the singles, such as "Hard," "Pass That Dutch," where the clean version removes the intro, while the explicit version does not. "Teenagers," "Hollaback Girl," and "Clique" also have explicit versions.

"I wanted to include explicit versions to reach to a different and larger audience. Changing the lyrics around all of the time makes it very difficult for fans to relate to the song," Trae said.


The episode titles of the series start with "The...," similar to shows such as Seinfeld and The O.C. Each episode title includes political, literal, psychological, and historical references that correlate with  the storylines or characters in the series.
