Are you ready to meet the parents, Glee Fanatics?

Fox has announced that Jennifer Coolidge and Ken Jeong have been cast on Glee Season 6 as the unique individuals who brought Brittany S. Pierce into the world. 

New cast member Billy Lewis Jr. (who portrays new Cheerio Mason) broke the casting tidbit in an interview with Hollywood Life, telling the site:

"Ken Jeong and Jennifer Coolidge play Brittany's parents in the show and watching the two of them work is like gold. It's like a comedic masterclass. The way they come up with new lines on the spot and make each other laugh constantly. It's just gold."

Back in November, Jeong posted the above photo from the Gleeset with Coolidge, Morris and co-executive producer and writer Michael Hitchcock.

It makes a lot more sense now.

Glee Season 6 Episode 1 and Glee Season 6 Episode 2 will air back-to-back on Friday, January 9, as Fox kicks off the final run of this once-great series.

I'm gonna miss all of you. I love you guys.


What if I were to innocently murder you, Will? I'd still have to go to trial. I'd still probably get off for justifiable homicide.
