Let the countdown begin! There is just over two weeks until new episodes of Glee premiere. FOX has been getting us pumped by releasing a little info at a time — a promo here, some photos there. And now, a short synopsis of the April 13 episode.
The big news is that the first ep will debut at 9:28 p.m. — giving us an extra two minutes of precious time with our Glee clubbers. And, we’ll get to meet guest stars Jonathan Groff and Idina Menzel in the very first episode, entitled “Hell-o.” We previously learned that this episode would feature songs with a variation on the theme “hell,” including The Beatles’ “Hello, Goodbye.” Here’s the full release from FOX:

GLEEks won’t want to miss a minute of the highly anticipated spring premiere of GLEE airing at a special time, Tuesday, April 13 (9:28-10:30 PM ET/PT), following AMERICAN IDOL on FOX.
In the “Hell-o” episode, GLEE picks up as New Directions is fresh off their monumental win at Sectionals and feeling on top of the world. With an extra spring in their step, they get to work on new numbers for Regionals – incuding a memorable rendition of The Beatles’ “Hello, Goodbye.” But when RACHEL (Lea Michele) and FINN’s (Cory Monteith) budding romance hits a bump in the road after she becomes involved with a competitor, JESSE ST. JAMES (guest star Groff), it threatens to derail the entire club. MR. SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison) pays a visit to SHELBY CORCORAN (guest star Menzel), coach of Vocal Adrenaline, to confirm Jesse’s motives. Meanwhile, Will is newly single, but is he ready to take his relationship with EMMA (Jayma Mays) to the next level? And to top it all off, SUE SYLVESTER (Jane Lynch) returns from her condo in Boca with a renewed focus on destroying Will and disbanding the glee club.
