Glee Season 6 Synopsis: Why Does Rachel Return Home?

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Fox has released the official synopsis for Glee Season 6 - and it proves that Ryan Murphy isn't a liar.

The series creator said this summer that his show will return to its "roots," with a focus on core characters, and we now have confirmation that Rachel will be at the center of new episodes in early 2015.

There will be a six-month time jump after the events that concluded Glee Season 5, with Rachel returning to Lima after failing as a TV star.

Once back home, she'll set out to reinstate and lead William McKinley's glee club. And Kurt will help.

While these two take the reigns of New Directions, meanwhile, Blaine will lead the Warblers and Mr. Schuester will advise Vocal Adrenaline. Talk about drama!

Glee Season 6 will also bring back Max Adler as Karofsky, while consisting of 13 episodes.

It will mark the final run for this musical comedy and it will premiere some time in January.

Here is a look at the complete FOX description:

After her humiliating failure as a TV actress, New Directions original star, RACHEL BERRY comes home to Lima to figure out what she wants to do next. Upon discovering that SUE SYLVESTER has banished the arts at McKinley, Rachel takes it upon herself to reinstate and lead the glee club.

Meanwhile, BLAINE ANDERSON, SAM EVANS and WILL SCHUESTER have all found surprising new gigs in Ohio.

So essentially they all come back having failed in their dreams to teach others how to dream big? No thanks. They lost me as a never missed an episode fan to barely watching in seasons 4 and 5.

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.
