A Socio-Political Theme That I Support
[Mark Salling and Denyse Tontz] might collaborate on something before he shoots Glee again in August.” Appearing on the final season of the show is “a little sad,” says Salling. “I’ll never really be ready to move on, and I couldn’t be more appreciative.
Us Weekly (via januarium)

Hey there, thought this might interest you. Remember that guy from Facebook that claimed he was about to have a chemistry test with Lea? Well, a friend congratulated him for landing a role on Glee and on his imdb page he is listed for 3 eps for season 6 as a Matthew Carter.

Edit: His imdb page suggests the episodes are 6.01, 6.03, and 6.05 - though he lists them as ‘rumored’.

OK. I just got an “I forgot to add” update from the source.

Jenna Ushkowitz is not returning as a regular, but she will come back for 3-4 episodes along with Amber Riley and Naya Rivera.

So were the sophomores told they won't be needed at all for S6/there's no chance or is it just that right now they have no plans for them/haven't told them they're needed?

They were told there are no plans to use them in any of the episodes. But that all decisions are subject to change.

mjsbigblog:

Sorry! I already have a correction to make concerning the newbies. NONE of them have been asked to return. Also, expect Naya and Amber Riley to return for 3-4 episodes.

All of the other regulars: Chord Overstreet, Kevin McHale, Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, Darren Criss—are returning.

Note: The article also newly reports that the rumour on the street is now 14 episodes and that filming will start on September 3 as the writers wanted more time (this was changed from what was supposed to be mid-August apparently).

TVLine has learned exclusively that Santana’s portrayer — who dodged rumors this spring that her days on the show were numbered — is returning for Season 6.

The small-ish catch: Rivera will be billed as a recurring guest star and not as a series regular — a change I’m told she requested (and the producers honored).

Why anyone understand that this "come back" don't means "stay in Ohio forever", but that "give back" mentioned by Brad? Maybe after the time jump everyone will have realized their dreams and want to do something good for other boys and girl,like Mr Shue has done with their? I think would be a beatiful thing! And for Klaine as much as I love NY, the wedding in Ohio would be the closing of a circle, and much more meaningful and Ryan has said that the gay marriage will be one of theme of the season

Oh man, yes. 

I’m so chill about season 6 - like I’ve said in other posts, I have zero expectations, my glee faves are emotionally already where I want them and the season IS a wrap up half season - so I’m here to enjoy the kurt, blaine, klaine, my old gang, and the music in whatever amount they give it. I’m not looking for real development with the short season, and basically, just wanting my happy ending. I’d love a wedding - but give me happy klaine riding off into the sunset at episode 613 (which - BTW - is like the quintessential luckiest number in all of Judaism  - random non-sensical aside) and I’m ready to live happily ever after.

I don’t know, people go to intense leaps of logic when spoilers come out - like these 22 or 23 year olds aren’t all committing to a lifetime of teaching in Lima…what even?? So yup - I’m with you. They’re coming back to ‘give back’, full circle, arts in schools blah blah blah and then will ride off into their next adventures when Glee ends.

And yeah, I never ever though the wedding would be anywhere other than Lima. 

(though I caution not to think anything RM said back in May is still the case - they cut the season significantly, and I do expect the whole season to be focused in Lima - which I imagine was perhaps the plan for part of the original concept. And while I def prefer Glee NYC to anything, I also strongly prefer everyone in the same location (which it seems like is happening) versus split stories that don’t interact).

My s6 mantra - don’t screw up klaine, give them each screen time, please a wedding, and the rest is icing. I’m already on my way to happily ever after kingdom.

@spinmybowtie - EXACTLY. Blaine IS the de facto head Warbler. Now canonized…YES. And oh him and his little dapper self all in charge…

I am surprised at how smiley this little ditty of a potential spoiler made me feel.

(And I mean for me this goes without saying but this isn’t the end point for the careers of Rachel or Blaine or Kurt or Sam or whatever…I think it’s a stop on the way to ‘give back’, revive Glee club, revive arts in schools, re-visit ‘home’, get married (ahem - give us our wedding), and then sail off into the sunset for many other off screen adventures…)

If Blaine is the head of the Warblers, I will cry. That is like /the dream/ except I didn't even know existed until now

Oh cry happy tears!! Yes!

I confess if I’m not getting Glee NY (which I’ve known for a while that I’m not getting), Blaine as the head of the Warblers has me pretty tickled….

(I’m slightly excited actually)…Shhh.

.

I hope Mario comes back, of course. That’s Chris Parnell, who played my love interest in New York. But we’ll have to see if he comes back and if that softens Sue’s heart at all. I think she’s back as principal, as far as I know. I think we’re going to have some surprises about who’s going to be the choir director of The Warblers and who will be the choir director of Vocal Adrenaline. I think it’ll be a big surprise.
Jane Lynch talks Glee series finale (x)
Although it sucks that glee is going back to ohio, but it does not seem like they are going to repeat high school storylines. it seems like more that our favorites return to try to preserve the legacy of something that they loved and the importance of the glee club influencing their lives

To be totally honest, I really don’t know what they’re going to do for 10-13 episodes at McKinley. I’m not sure they know. I don’t think they’re introducing new characters to grow the characters and stories. And yes - I guess our faves will be the focus somehow.

It’s quite clear that the concept for the season got scrapped when it got cut in half (bye bye LA - we maybe will get 1-2 eps of that), though I’m fairly sure this ‘bring back Glee club’ was one of the plots for later in the season - the themes of ‘comeback’ and ‘giving back’ were both mentioned a while ago - so I guess they went with that concept.

As for me, truthfully, I’m letting go. I want to see Kurt and Blaine’s wedding (which I always thought would be in Lima) and everything else I get about them is icing on the cake. The end arc of season 5 was what I needed and wanted more of and also could have been a series finale in terms of the emotional place of the characters and the emotional success I saw in each of them (not just Kurt and Blaine).

So I’m here for season 6…looking forward to all the kurt, blaine, klaine I get (and praying they don’t shake them up in any real way), looking forward to some songs and seeing my faves again…But I’m there. My characters are where I want them. And knowing this is a short season wrap up, I’m getting ready to say goodbye.

Glee is going old school in its final season.

Series co-creator Ryan Murphy told TVLine at Thursday’s Critics Choice Television Awards (where he washonored with the Louis XIII Genius Award) that the show will shift back to its original conceit in Season 6.

“We’re working on the last season now, and it really feels like it’s getting back to its roots, which I love,” he shared. “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.”

Murphy’s quotes — as well as fellow EP Brad Falchuk’s assertion to TVLine that “there will be a lot going on in Lima” in Season 6 — all but confirms speculation that much of the action will once again take place at McKinley High.

Murphy, meanwhile, admitted that he “sort of stepped away from Glee a little bit” last season to focus on directing HBO’s The Normal Heart. Cory Monteith’s death also made working on the show challenging. “To be honest with you, my heart kind of broke a little bit,” he conceded. “It was very difficult, not just for me, but for everybody.”

Lynch: We’re going into a sixth season. I think it’s going to be half a season. I think we’re going back to McKinley High. I think. I don’t know any of this for sure. But that’s the word on the street.

Thanks tirpse.

The guy has been decidedly silent since his screen test with Lea on May 28. Pretty sure the casting call is true as Brad’s quote from Variety seems to confirm that they are casting a love interest for Rachel.

But as Stacey says, dude may have jeopardized his chances by talking about in on Facebook. 

For those who want to see the guy’s facebook who likely auditioned for Rachel’s love interest, here it is. And Brad F seems to confirm that they are trying to cast someone in his quote from the Variety article about twitter.

theatrevicki said: I find it interesting that he tweeted about his personal website on 5/12, but then it was taken down on 5/30, 2 days after the chem test. I think he was probably cast and had to remove his website.

 Gleekto says: Reblogging with theatrevicki’s comment. I agree, actually. So let’s see if we’re right…Is this guy Rachel’s new LI?
