Break out your old backpacks and varsity jackets 'cause we're going back to high school!

Glee is set to introduce five new recurring characters in the upcoming sixth and final season, TVLine reports. And guess what? They are all McKinley High sophomores. Looks like we're heading back to Lima, Gleeks!

It's time for a role call! Here's the rundown of Glee's newbies:

First up, we have two new Cheerios, who are twins: Mason and Madison. They're both super-positive and weird, so they are perfect for the Cheerios, no? Oh, and Mason is straight, though many assume he's gay.

Then we have the new football stud with a voice of magic Spencer, who is "post-Glee gay," a casting breakdown notes, which means no one messes with him because of his sexuality, and he'd kick their ass if they did.  

The ambitious, unconventionally pretty and drily funny Jane will join New Directions after she's turned away by the Warblers. Finally, the shy and chubby Roderick is the new glee underdog, with a voice like Otis Redding.

Fans can expect to see some major changes in the final season, with Ryan Murphy revealing there would be a time-jump and a move away from New York. Plus, the recently-married Naya Rivera will no longer be a series regular.

Glee's 13-episode final season will kick off at midseason on Fox.
