enters its sixth and final season, many fans were hoping to get a lovely send-off for the characters they had come to know and love. Would Rachel become a huge Broadway star? Would Santana and Brittany get back together for good? Would Kurt continue on his path of teary self-realization and eventually take over the fashion world?
These would all be interesting storylines for the final season of the once-beloved musical dramedy. But instead, Glee
is casting five new McKinley High teenagers for you to not give a crap about. Seriously!
Back in June, Glee
co-creator Ryan Murphy all but confirmed to TVLine
that the majority of the Season 6 action will inexplicably
take place in Lima. “We’re working on the last season now, and it really feels like it’s getting back to its roots, which I love,” he said. “I’m sort of reinvigorated about it. It’s getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools… I think people will like it.”
I think most longtime fans would have liked a whole final season in NYC better, but nevertheless Glee
is moving forward with the Lima-centric season and casting five new McKinley High students. The casting descriptions are below (also via TVLine
: "Chubby and shy with a voice like Otis Redding, his looks don’t match with his talent. Described as, 'a true goober.'"SPENCER
: "He’s the new resident 'football stud' who just so happens to possess an incredible voice. He’s also gay." But, "he’s post-Glee
gay — no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their asses if they do.”JANE
: "Righteous, ambitious and unconventionally pretty, she’s funny because she doesn’t have much of a sense of humor. She wanted to be a Warbler but tradition kept her from joining so she jumps ship to the New Directions."MASON AND MADISON
: "Male and female twin Cheerios. They’re super-positive and extremely weird."
So there you have it. Get ready to watch these characters sing and dance (whether you like it or not).
