The full cast is expected back on Glee Season 4, although only Lea Michele has been confirmed as appearing in every episode.

At yesterday's Television Critics Association panel, producer Ian Brennan said some characters may only show up sporadically as the series shifts between Ohio and New York.

Overstreet will also need to fight for screen time with a couple new stars: Dean Geyer has been cast as a new love interest for Rachel in The Big Apple, while Jacob Artist will come on board as Puck's younger brother.

Glee kicks off a new season on Thursday - yes, Thursday - September 13.
