Glee - Season 3 News/Other Stuff

Okay, it's going to be a while before Season 3 of Glee hits the airwaves (that's Sky1 for UK viewers now) but with the cast on tour in the US and by next week, the UK and Ireland, there's some stuff to savour.
Six new staff writers have been added to the series for it's third year. Amongst the writers are Allison Adler, Roberto Aguirre Sacasa, Ross Maxwell, Matt Hodgson Michael Hitchcock and of course, Marti Noxon, the woman who has written for Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Angel, Brothers And Sisters, Grey's Anatomy, Private Practice and Mad Men. It seems the new influx of writers are here to help with the four new characters being added to the series as well as the main characters.

I should point out one of the four new characters being added for a seven episode arc will come from the reality show The Glee Project, airing on the Oxygen Network. No UK broadcaster has decided to take on this show yet but I'm hearing the ratings aren't exactly impressive for the series. Maybe you can have too much of a good thing. Darren Criss was a guest judge on the first episode of the series.

Elsewhere with tours and stuff, the cast have been sticking in the media for different reasons. Naya Rivera has gotten a solo album deal, both Darren Criss and Kevin McHale have appeared in the video for Katy Perry's Last Friday Night, Dianna Agron's "Likes Girls" T-Shirt has generated headlines and both Chris Colfer and Lea Michele have been showing up in Emmy Roundtable videos with various other actors from TV shows. Even when it's not on the telly, it seems you can't escape from Glee.
