*It’s been confirmed that Jane Lynch’s Sue Sylvester will be promoted to Principal of McKinley High when Glee returns with season 5.
If you haven’t been that excited about Coach Roz Washington (NeNe Leakes) making more of an appearance in Glee‘s season 5, never fear. Coach Sue Sylvester is…back!!
TV Guide confirms via actress Jane Lynch that Sue will soon be patrolling the halls of William McKinley High School once again – but it may not be as a coach.
Glee’s Jane Lynch (supporting actress in a comedy) tells me Sue Sylvester, who was fired last season amid a school-shooting scandal, will be returning to McKinley High — with a sweet promotion: “[Sue] has a new position of power, and there’s one scene where she makes everybody get a polio vaccine, even though the disease was eradicated decades ago.” Might Sue be the new principal? “Principal Figgins is still around, but we’ll learn in what capacity,” Lynch says. “And I have power over [new Cheerios coach] Roz Washington.“
Hmm…so our clues are a “sweet promotion” and “power over Roz Washington”…but Principal Figgins [Iqbal Theba] will still be around in some capacity. Do you think Sue will be taking on some kind of Assistant Principal-ship?
