If you read our list of 5 Can't-Miss TV stories of Comic-Com (and if you're our mom, you definitely did read it), then you know we were highly anticipating Glee's panel at Comic-Con, because we needed some freakin' answers!
Did we get some? Pretty much, plus some more new tidbits about what this "revolutionary" fourth season will be all about…
As per usual, there will be a three month time jump between where the show ended and when it picks back up. Which means we'll have to catch up with Finn, Rachel, Kurt and the rest on the fly. Here's what we know so far about Glee's fourth season:
Status of the Core Characters: Finn will start season four in the army (yes, Cory Monteith is up for shaving his head), while his ex-fiancé Rachel (Lea Michele) will be struggling to take Manhattan by storm, alone. Kate Hudson will play her dance instructor, and she won't be all sunshine like Mr. Schuester. "[Her teaching style is] one based on negative reinforcement," executive producer Brad Falchuck reveals. "Rachel has to get used to that."
As for Kurt (Chris Colfer), who didn't get into NYADA, we will find him still in Lima at the start of season four. But Falchuck said he might turn up in New York with Rachel before too long. "Those two are best friends," he teased. "It would be hard to keep them apart." And what of his boyfriend, Blaine (Darren Criss)? The only thing they would say about those two is that their relationship in season four would be a "new adventure."
Finally, Santana (Naya Rivera) will start season four at the University of Louisville on her cheerleading scholarship, even though her mom gave her money to go to New York City. What does that hold for Brittana? That's a plot line we are still in the dark on.
Wemma at McKinley High: Although Will (Matthew Morrison) and Emma (Jayma Mays) are still "very much in love" and "living together and doing dirty things," Schue now has to worry about getting a full choir group together in time for sectionals, à la season one. "That room is half empty. They're desperately trying to get 12 kids again for sectionals," Falchuck says. Could a wedding distract them from recruiting? Not likely. "I don't think they're going to get married right away," Falchuck insists.
It's Britney, Bitch. Again! The second Britney Spears tribute, once again centering on Heather Morris, will be the season's second episode.
Meet the Family: We will be introduced to Puck's (Mark Salling) brother this season, and if it were up to producer Ian Brennan, we'd also be meeting Artie's (Kevin McHale) parents. Brennan admitted that he always pictured Artie's mom as a hoarder.
Poor Fabrerry: Falchuck confessed during the panel that he has written a Rachel-Quinn (Dianna Agron) scene five different times, and each time it had to be cut from the episode.
Well, Gleeks? What do you think about what we know about season four...so far?
