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

by at .  Updated 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.

Glee Cast in Action

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

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.


Glee Club is officially over. Thank you guys. It’s been an honor.
