Prepare to get into a New York State of Mind on Glee Season 4, fans, because the show will be spending a great deal of time in The Big Apple.
Following a set visit by Vulture, we can confirm a number of upcoming storylines, songs and spoilers, all of which are based on Rachel and Kurt residing on the East Coast and taking the next major step in their lives.
- They will become roommates in Brooklyn, with Rachel of course living there due to her acceptance into NYADA and Kurt soon joining her after growing bored of life in Lima.
- Kate Hudson's dance instructor will be named Cassandra July, while Sarah Jessica Parker - pictured above in a Twit pic from the set - will portray Isabelle Klempt, a Vogue.com employee who mentors Kurt and also gives Rachel a makeover.
- Early on, in order to impress Cassandra and prove she can be sexy, Rachel will cover "Oops!... I Did It Again." And she'll receive help with it from Dean Geyer's Brody Weston, who will serve as a love interest to the newly single Ms. Berry.
Said Geyer, who will recur this season: “New York’s cooler, the stakes are a little higher. It’s a completely different world from the original Glee. Rachel has to adapt quickly.”
Finally, look for Blaine to sing a version of "Everybody Wants to Rule the World" and Brittany to express sadness over missing Santana via Britney Spears’ “Everytime."
And look for Glee to return on Thursday, September 13.
