Glee Season 4: Time Jump, Tributes, Dirty Things Teased

by at . Comments

So... where will everyone be? That's the main question heading into Glee Season 4.

At the show's Comic-Con panel discussion yesterday, we were treated to a great deal of scoop from producers Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuck regarding the whereabouts of various characters when new episodes return on Thursdays this fall.

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Darren Criss, Naya Rivera, Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz were also on hand.

Approximately three months will have passed when we meet back up with the show. A new school year will be starting.

Sue will have had her baby, Brennan said, adding: "She's now Sue with a baby and a different set of priorities but still can't help but make fun of everyone as often as possible."

Kurt will be in Lima, Santana at the University of Louisville, Finn in the army (He's the real question mark, says Brennan and Falchuk, with the latter adding: "He went off on this adventure [into the army] and nobody really knows what’s happened to him.”) As for Rachel?

The dancing aspect of life at NYADA will be a challenge, even with help from guest star Kate Hudson, whose teaching style is all about "negative reinforcement," said Falchuk.

What about Will and Emma? "They're still engaged and very much in love and living together and doing very dirty things," says Falchuk.

The second episode of Season 4 will feature Heather Morris and another Britney Spears tribute.

Samuel Larsen and Alex Newel WILL return at some point, while Chord Overstreet will likely be made a series regular.

Look for plenty of new characters, including: Puck's younger brother and a roommate for Rachel in NYC: "We're definitely looking to repopulate the choir room and casting some new people to bring in there, the idea is to keep that part of the show vibrant," Falchuk said.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.


[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.
