Kevin McHale (Artie) admitted to E! Online that he has “no idea” what the heck is happening with Glee season 4. He also admitted that some characters might possibly bump into Kate Hudson or Sarah Jessica Parker next season. Cue, What?? One Glee spoiler at a time please, Kevin.
Right, back to season 4. Last we left the news for Glee‘s next season, big boss Ryan Murphy had some brand-spanking new “awesome” storylines up his sleeves for the graduated seniors to work as a secondary plot to the regular New Directions portion of the series. But except for a highlighted few (Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and Chris Colfer), Mr. Ryan Murphy neglected to tell us exactly which senior characters would be returning next season. Now E! Online can confirm the full season 4 cast for sure:
Ryan Murphy has said that he had invited everybody to come back to Glee for season four, and it looks like the entire cast has taken him up on that offer. Dianna Agron, Heather Morris, Naya Rivera, Darren Criss, Mark Salling, Chris Colfer, Amber Riley, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Harry Shum Jr. are all set to return. The gang will be joining Lea Michele and Cory Monteith for what is being called a “revolutionary” fourth season of the Fox hit.
Of course our favorite Glee teachers will also be returning next season: Matthew Morrison as Will Scheuster, Jane Lynch as Sue Sylvester, and Jayma Mays as Emma Pillsbury.
I’m betting you’re probably noticing a name missing from that list up there, huh? Not to worry, Chord Overstreet will also be returning to Glee, as Sam Evans (you didn’t think after that big stink before that he would count himself out of season 4, do you?). He’s also in talks to be promoted to a series regular according to Deadline, so keep your fingers crossed, Sam-fans!
So what possibilities do you see for all our graduated seniors next season? Everybody, including Harry Shum, Jr., is definitely hoping for some more dancing from Mike Chang. Already excited for season 4? Sound off in the comments!
