After you graduate from high school, is it lame to return to your old stomping grounds for a visit? Perhaps Glee can help us answer that question, because in the next episode, "The Role You Were Born to Play," some New Directions alums come back to McKinley!

In these first look photos, Mercedes (Amber Riley), Finn (Cory Monteith) and Mike (Harry Shum Jr.) are among the former New Directions members who lend a helping hand when the glee club puts together the production of Grease. This will also be the episode where we meet Ryder, played by Glee Project winner Blake Jenner, who gets recruited by Finn to join New Directions.

And there's one more familiar face in the photos: Dot Marie Jones, who is back as Coach Beiste to give Emma (Jayma Mays) some advice on Will's Washington situation. Scroll through the photos and keep counting down the days until Glee's return on Thursday, Nov. 8 on Fox.
