Well filming for the fifth (and possible penultimate) season of Glee has begun and thanks to Lea Michele, we've got a glimpse of a season cast with the gang in both McKinley and New York ....
It's been revealed that the fifth season will be promoting Melissa Benoist (Marley), Jacob Artist (Jake) and Becca Tobin (Kitty) as regular for the new season while Alex Newell (Unique) and Blake Jenner (Ryder) will have expanded roles in Season 5.
More to the point (and perhaps not as shockingly) it's also been revealed that Heather Morris (Brittany), Mark Salling (Puck), Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Harry Shum Jr (Mike) will not be regulars for the new season. Given that they barely factored in Season 4, it's not that much of a shock and Morris herself was given a pretty decent exit in All Or Nothing. They will pop up as guest stars in the fifth season as will Dianna Agron (Quinn).
While it's nice to have some news about the upcoming season, I was hoping for something a little more surprising though. Then again with production for Season 5 already in and an airdate confirmed for it's return, I'm sure more news will surface soon.
