We reported yesterday how the fourth season of Glee would be a show-within-a-show format and now, we have even MORE goodies for you!
At the Fox Upfronts yesterday, Glee creator Ryan Murphy revealed to Lea Michele and Cory Monteith what would be going down with their characters next season!
Of the experience, Lea said:
“I just sat there and didn't speak and tried to memorize and remember everything. And things change throughout the year, but it's very exciting. I was super happy. Cory was happy."
Things change?! Noooo! Finchel forever! LOLz!
Also up next for the show? Not only will Britney Spears be starring as a mentor on The X Factor — which will air right before Glee on Thursdays — it looks like Glee will be doing a SECOND Brit Brit tribute episode!!!
Riding high off the recent Britney buzz, the tribute episode will be the second ep of the season and will include eight of her songs!
Reportedly, though, the episode will NOT revolve around the character Brittany…hmmm…does this mean Heather Morris definitely isn’t returning?!
Producers are hoping to work out a deal for Britney to appear in the episode, which we're sure they could cross-promote with The X Factor!
If the new XF mentor DOES guest star on the show, she’ll be joining Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker this season.
Chris Colfer leaked yesterday that SJP will be taking on the role of Kurt’s mentor and Kate Hudson will play the role of Rachel’s mentor, who'll be singing AND dancing!
As for the season three finale episode? Lea says Rachel and Finn leave off with a cliffhanger, whereas Chris says Kurt and Blaine just “zig and zag.”
SO much excitement — both for the season three finale AND for season four!
Don't forget to tune in tonight to see OUR guest starring role at Nationals!!!
