Kate Hudson, Glee, Twit Pic

"A brave new Glee."

That's exactly what the first promo for the Fox hit's fourth season says fans can expect when it returns on Sept. 13. They can also expect a kind of mean Kate Hudson (We love it!), Blaine (Darren Criss) performing Imagine Dragon's hit song "It's Time" and a familiar face joining New Directions! So who is it?

Plus, we get a quick first look at Sue's (Jane Lynch) baby and a cute Wemma moment!

"I bet you were a big star back in Iowa," a deliciously snarky Hudson says to her dance student Rachel (Lea Michele). When Rachel corrects her, saying, "I'm actually from Ohio," Hudson kicks her snarkiness up a notch: "Oh, Ohio? Even worse." Rachel Berry must be toast because she just got burned!

And it's time to meet one of the new members of New Directions: Alex Newell! Yes, it seems the Glee Project star will be returning as Unique and will be transferring to McKinley! (Sorry, Jesse St. James!) Brittany's (Heather Morris) amazing response? "That's a great haircut, Mercedes, but I thought you graduated?" Whole new Glee, same old Brittany.

Also, we saw that cute little nose tap, Will (Matthew Morrison) and Emma (Jayma Mays)!

Glee returns Thursday, Sept. 13, at 9 p.m. on Fox.
