When Will Jonathan Groff Return to Glee?

at . Comments

Following last night's incredible Glee episode, many viewers may still be weeping.

But we urge them to dry their tears in order to read what creator Ryan Murphy has to say about a number of topics, starting with when Jonathan Groff will re-appear on our favorite musical comedy.

"[He] is definitely coming back next year. Next calendar year," Murphy told E! News. "He's not available until January, but he'll be in the back [nine] episodes of this season."

In Honor of Burt

Here are a few other tidbits and spoilers Murphy shared:

On the post-Super Bowl episode: I feel like everyone's already talking about Michael Jackson or Springsteen or Prince, but I want to do something that no one would suspect. Just some random person, I don't know. I have a couple feelers out to several artists, all of whom have said yes - which I never expected, so now I have to choose.

Was Matthew Morrison really gonna shave his head for the Britney episode? That was never seriously going to happen, it was just an idea. It was discussed as one of many things to do because she's had many pop culture events, but it was quickly discarded. None of us really felt it was appropriate.

What's ahead for Finn and Rachel? There is trouble ahead when Rachel plays spin the bottle!

EEEEKKK! I love Jesse, I don't even care if it doesn't make sense 'cause he was a senior last year.


while playing spin the bottle rachel kisses puck not .. and then think that it is finn .. but then finn finds out that she kissed puck .. and he gets really jelous


Rachel ends up kissing Quinn in a spin the bottle game. And yes Jessee was a senior, he's now in college, but.... Ryan Murphy said: "Maybe he doesn't do so well in college and comes back to get his glory. We're writing the script right now!"


When does Rachel play spin the bottle? Anyone?


I thought he was a senior and going to university.


Jesse St James >>> YOU.


I'm wondering how they make Jesse come back: wasn't he a senior last year?

Glee Quotes

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
