Glee Season 6 to Introduce Gay Football Player, Twin Cheerios and More

at . Comments

We still do not know when Glee Season 6 will debut.

But we do now know a number of new characters who will be introduced to viewers on the final season of this Fox comedy.

TV Line has come out with the character descriptions for five new William McKinley sophomores who will be introduced whenever Glee returns to the air, likely in early 2015.

They include:

  • RODERICK is overweight and shy with a "voice like Otis Redding." The show's new underdog, you wouldn't expect such a voice to come from someone who looks like this.
  • SPENCER is gay and has a great voice. According to the casting outline, “he’s post-Glee gay — no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their asses if they do.”
  • JANE is pretty serious, ambitious and unconventionally pretty. She wanted to be a Warbler, but had to go with New Directions because she’s female.
  • MASON AND MADISON are twin Cheerios. They possesses a positive attitude are and are very weird.

Ryan Murphy has previously said that Glee Season 6 will get back to the show's "root" and focus on its core characters.

This update would seem to imply otherwise, though it does make it clear that the focus will return to the halls of William McKinley for the final Glee episodes of all-time.

Why so much negativity??? It is just a musical show Glee has its best season and its worst. We like it for once, love it long enough and hate some parts. Regardless how bad storylines can become-- it is still glee no matter what the season or flavor it maybe.. For me, Glee will always remain one of the most successful show ever.. (itunes, billboard, ratings either up or down, movie, and golden globe awards and etc.) I'm coming back to watch Glee in Season 6

I don't think that many people watched because it was about arts education. I think this is Ryan searching for anyway to call this show relevant now.


Wow, introducing a bunch of new characters that nobody cares about worked so well the last time they tried it.


I agree. The show is is practically over why bring on new people? Bring back Adam Lambert. He's amazing.


Why add new characters when there are only 13 episodes left? I thought we were basically done at McKinley. This seems really pointless…

@ Amy Lynn

Ryan never understood that it was the original cast that made this show famous and that did not include either Darren or Chord who are so heavily featured now.


Well why all the buzz about a gay character if Glee alrayd had one gay actor playing a gay character who is this Colfer dude


This HAS to be a joke. Please tell me this is a joke.

Glee Quotes

[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.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
