Hear that noise? That’s the sound of Gleeks celebrating over the latest Glee casting news.
When the most recent season of Glee was coming to an end, there was a lot of uncertainty regarding the fates of some of our favorite characters. We knew that Heather Morris, Darren Criss and Jenna Ushkowtiz would be back next season, but what would happen to our graduating seniors like Lea Michele? We’ll no need to worry anymore Glee fans because Ryan Murphy has invited everybody back to McKinley High for Season Four!
And you know what’s even better, all of them have accepted their invites! As excited as I am, I’m also equally surprised that everyone is on board to come back! I figured most of the cast would take their graduation date as a way to explore other projects, but I was wrong! So this means that Amber Riley, Chris Colfer, Corey Monteith, Mark Salling, Naya Rivera, Dianna Agron, and Harry Shum Jr. will all be back! Oops, we almost forgot, EVEN the teachers will be coming back to McKinely High!
As Glee-tastic as this is, I have to be honest. I used to a be a raging Glee-aholic until this past season when I got bored with most of the plot lines and characters. However, I think Fox is making a smart move by having the high school grads come back because it will give Season 4 new life!
Supposedly, the returning cast will take turns being in feature episodes, with various story lines jumping back and fourth between the cast. I think this is a great idea because fans will be able to see new things like Quinn getting her collegiate career on at Yale. Whatever Ryan Murphy has in store for these kids, I’m hoping it will not only be enough to re-gain my attention, and even possibly get some new viewers for the show!
Oh and before you go off belting your favorite Glee show tunes, we have even more news about casting! Word on the street is that Chord Overstreet has been offered the opportunity to be a season regular! Though there has yet to be an announcement if he has agreed to returning, we sure hope those big lips will say yes!
Now go out and sing some fan favorites, because we are in for one hell of a ride come Season Four!
