Report: 'Glee' Promotes Five Newbies to Series Regulars


FOX

There's going to be some pretty major shake-ups on Glee next season. Friday, we learned Mark Salling, Amber Riley, and Harry Shum, Jr. would not be returning as regulars. Now The Hollywood Reporter claims Melissa Benoist, Jacob Artist, and Becca Tobin have been promoted! As have Glee Project alums Blake Jenner and Alex Newell.

So, this is kind of like Saved By the Bell: The New Class (without the title change), right?

In case you need a little refresher on who these newbies play, here's a quick rundown: Marley (Benoist) came in and seemed to take over Rachel Berry's (Lea Michele) post with New Directions and Jake (Artist) became her love interest. Kitty (Tobin) became the mean girl and Jenner seems to be the new Finn (Cory Monteith). Newell plays Wade "Unique" Adams, a transgender student.

Tell us: Are you excited about the casting changes? Will you tune in for seasons 5 and 6? Sound off in the comments!
