Ryan Murphy has not revealed when Sanchez will stop by his Fox hit, nor has he announced any character details.

Sanchez finished second to Philip Phillips on Season 11 of Idol, but many believe she was responsible for the show's most memorable performances last year, highlighted by her take on "I Will Always Love You."

Glee, meanwhile, will return with new episodes on November 8. Watch the official promo now for "The Role You Were Born to Play."

[to Rachel] You and I both know how this thing ends. I don't know how, or when, and I don't care where you're living or what dope you're shacked up with. You're my girlfriend. We are endgame. I know that and you know that.
