Glee Cast Books Return for Season 4

by at . Comments

Glee Season 4 will feature many new faces: Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Hudson, possibly American Idol runner-up Jessica Sanchez.

But it's now also been confirmed that the upcoming season will feature a number of old faces, namely... every single one you saw on your screen every Tuesday night last season.

Indeed, Deadline reports that every Glee cast member will return in 2012-2013.

Only Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are likely to appear in every episode, but Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer, Naya Rivera, Kevin McHale, Darren Criss, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Jayma Mays, Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr and Heather Morris have all accepted Ryan Murphy's offer to star in some capacity on Season 4.

As previously noted, Glee's move to Thursday nights this fall will also signify a storytelling shift for the program. It will rotate between life in NYC for Rachel and Kurt and life in Ohio for all other New Directions.

Deadline also states that Chord Overstreet is in negotiations to officially come on board as a series regular.

@gleeluvr: I agree with you about Finn and Rachel, but not with your comments about other characters. We all know that their characters are just school immature youngers, they all have to learn. Quinn proved herself to be a mother loving her kid, responsible for succeess of Glee club. Blain, Mercedes also. Brittany has grown up after each season, her contribution to Glee has been significant, she taught other girls to dance, S3E19 Brittany held amazing prom, didn't she?. I believe she will graduate in next season after staying one more year in school for accomplishing her presidency. Next season will be the season of mature, talent, demonstration.

My absolute favorite characters are Santana and Kurt, and I liked the story lines very much on both the second and third season! I'm hooked on this show, have been since day one :D

@jigga We all have out favorites and I respect that. I agree with you about Quinn character being blah. But I differ about your assessment on Finn, yes weak, but supportive but he is very insecure as was Rachel. I love Kurt, Santana, Rachel and Finn. I do not care about Blaine, he really can sing, Mercedes, really can sing, Brittany, really can dance but a moron. But their characters are weak or dull or mad or stupid. I would love to see more Tina and Artie. Sam's ok too. No to Damian or Samuel. Writing s3 was just ok rather mundane, dull, creepy, or stupid. Must be better s4 to last to s5. IMO only. No matter what it will be, I will watch Glee.

Noone has commented for almost a week, so I thought I would reenforce what the majority wants.... NO MORE FINN. He is a terrible character, totally unredeemable. They should have kept him with Quinn, at least that is an even pair. Now, load the show with Rachel, Kurt/Blaine, Mercedes, Santana/Brittany, and the "also-ran" Glee club - and I think you can recapture some of the magic!!

Hope Heather will return. I love her dancing and her innocent way

I know that a lot of people have tired of Rachel and her being its center. But that is what Glee started as Rachel and her dream via the Glee Club with all those who surround her character. They learned from each other. So as Glee intends to continue with her character following her dream in NY, Glee will have her live her daily life and new strifes while showing the others in their daily lives and struggles. Finn will be figuring out his path to follow into adulthood. Rachel was the catalyst for all the others to watch and learn from-perseverance, drive, conviction, tenacity, hard work all needed to lead toward ones future to obtain one's goals.

S1 was the best because the storylines were streamlined to focus on the main characters. I hope that what Glee states does take place/focus on main characters. When there are 14-15 stories for a season to cover not many will have any thorough output on an episode. s4 were snippets of stories in each episode to the point of silly or uninteresting nonsense. Each episode was overloaded with multiple stories to the point of too much, too little, too dull, too outlandish, too dramatic, and even too stupid. Too many tributes(yawn). Too many characters standing the the background with nothing to do but sway.(yawn) I didn't care for s2 too angsty for a comedy and too much social PSA. Which carried over into s3 where that greatly multiplied. S1 was the best. S2 was a mess. S3 was a drag. S4 must be better or else there will not be anymore.

I love Glee/Finchel/Finn/Rachel/Kurt and the original cast. Glee IS different from s1. S2 and S3 were angst and drama(too much for a comedy IMO). S3 was more consistent but had some pretty far-fetched and uninteresting storylines. The Quinn pink hair, cig smoking, non-bathing, skank girl who was farout crazy to trying to get Beth back story to Auto-accident from texting and driving to standing and dancing at Nationals was too wierd. Finchel wanting to marry was way odd. Moron Brittany was sad and useless story. Puck/Shelby love tryst was disgusting. Santana/Mercedes in The Troubletones and mad all the time was a drag. Glee needs a face lift and now. Too many cast/characters will drain the show. I just hope for better writing s4. Or won't be a s5. Ryan Murphy's contract is for 5yrs. We'll see how far it goes.

I chuckle when I read your blogs. The only other one I would rather see featured is Blaine. Santana and Puck are jokes and Mercedes has run her course.

Glee Quotes

Beiste: Dr. Jones said the new end of world date is September 27, 2014
Brittany: That gives us like two whole years of giving love and brutal honesty to everyone we know.

Will: I hate to say it but I think as long as you keep being yourself, your life is probably going to be a constant string of 'don't belongs'.
Unique: I know. I should probably start getting used to it.
Will: No, no. You should never get used to it. All great changes come from people who refused to get used to what was accepted but wasn't right. Slavery, gay rights, New Coke.
