For all of us “Gleeks” out there, we already know that in season four Rachel (Lea Michele) is going to begin her journey in New York, Kurt (Chris Colfer) will possibly be joining Rachel in New York, and will be seeing Finn (Cory Monteith) in the U.S. Army. However, cast members Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss (Blaine), Kevin McHale (Artie), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Naya Rivera (Santana), and executive producers Brad Falchuk, Ian Brennan, Dante Diloreto revealed some new information while on the Glee Comic-Con panel in San Diego.
Here is what was talked about on the Glee panel according to an article from Entertainment Weekly:
“The next Britney Spears tribute will be the second episode of the season and feature Heather Morris heavily. The episode will also explore Rachel’s transition to New York. Fresh off her breakup with Finn, Ms. Berry will find herself as a big fish in a really, really big pond in New York City. Kate Hudson will play her negative-reinforcement-loving dance teacher.
The series regulars in season 3 will be back “in some capacity” for season 4, says Falchuk. Not every episode, though — the cast is too big to accommodate everyone on each episode. Chord Overstreet — recurring in season 3 — isn’t locked in to return as a season 4 series regular… yet. Producers are hopeful that a deal will come through, though. They feel the same way about Sam and Alex, contestants of The Glee Project, neither of whom are officially signed on for the new season.
Glee favorites will find themselves all over the place. Santana is cheerleading at the University of Louisville, Finn is prepping to join the army (which led the crowd to plead for Monteith not to shave his head), and Kurt is still in Lima, stuck in a bit of a rut. Will and Emma aren’t married yet, but they are living together, happily engaged, and “doing dirty things.”
We’ll be meeting Puck’s little brother this season, and if producer Ian Brennan has his way, Artie’s parents as well. While they haven’t been written into the show yet, he says he’s always dreamed of Artie’s mother being an obsessive hoarder. Kevin McHale says that if the character ever makes the show, he’d love to see Katey Sagal play his mom and Harry Connick Jr. play his dad.”
What do you think of these new ideas? Are you looking forward to season four? Do you think the show will become too chaotic following all of these different characters? Let me know in the comments below!
