The Final Season of 'Glee' Is All About Characters You Don't Care About

The Final Season of 'Glee' Is All About Characters You Don't Care About

As Glee 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):

RODERICK: "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).
