Gleeks! We didn’t stop believing… AND IT PAID OFF!
When the last season of Glee came to a close in May, there was a heavy feeling in our hearts, a feeling like it was the end of era. Some of our favorite characters seemed to be going off into the world, starting new adventures away from McKinely High … and the FOX network.
We knew that some of our faves would be sticking around for another year. Lovelies like Darren Criss, Heather Morris and Jenna Ushkowitz are all still in school in the Glee-verse, and of course, there was no way that Ryan Murphy was going to part with our Princess Lea, her prince Cory Monteith and bestie Chris Colfer.
HOWEVER, the extraordinary news this morning is that the all original 15 regulars have been invited back for Season 4 … and ALL have accepted! We’re talking Amber Riley! Dianna Agron! Mark Salling! Naya Rivera! Harry Shum Jr.! And all all the teachers too!
What we’re hearing is that to accommodate the young casts eagerness to pursue other projects – like movies, theater and music – and to make room for new characters, the large cast will take turns being featured in episodes, with storylines jumping to-and-fro between the beloved stars!
Look, we’re about to get real here: we’re 100% ON BOARD with this arrangement. We’re invested in these kids, we want to know if Quinn finds new love at Yale, who Mercedes gets to sing for as a backup performer… how many housewives Puck gets to do in the OC!
Oh! And get this! Remember old Trouty Mouth? The offer is on the table for him to become a series regular! He hasn’t signed on the dotted line just yet, but considering what happened the last time he checked out of the school, we have a feeling Chord Overstreet is just waiting for someone to hand him a pen!
This news is just lifted our SOUL to new HEIGHTS! Summer be gone! We’re itching to GLEEK OUT AGAIN!!!
