TVLine and E! Online both confirm the casting news that five newbie characters will be introduced in Glee's sixth and final season - including a gay "football stud", a Warbler-turned-New Directions girl, and twin Cheerios. (Which I guess is also yet another confirmation that Glee will be moving full-time to McKinley in season 6?)
Check out the list:
Glee is set to introduce at least five new characters — all of them McKinley sophomores — in its sixth and final season, TVLine has learned exclusively. The recurring newbies include:
RODERICK | Chubby and shy with a voice like Otis Redding, his looks don’t match with his talent. Described as, “a true goober.” He’s the show’s new underdog.
SPENCER | He’s the new resident “football stud” who just so happens to possess an incredible voice. He’s also gay. But, per the casting notice, “he’s post-Glee gay — no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their asses if they do.”
JANE | Righteous, ambitious and unconventionally pretty, she’s funny because she doesn’t have much of a sense of humor. She wanted to be a Warbler but tradition kept her from joining so she jumps ship to the New Directions.
MASON AND MADISON | Male and female twin Cheerios. They’re super-positive and extremely weird. Mason gives off a gay vibe (spoiler alert: he’s not).
Does this mean we will still see our newest McKinley glee club standbys in season 6? Blake Jenner (Ryder Lynn), Melissa Benoist (Marley Rose), Becca Tobin (Kitty Wilde), Jacob Artist (Jake Puckerman), and Alex Newell (Wade "Unique" Adams).
What do you think about all these new characters, yea or nay?
