Lea Michele has given fans a sneak peek into what the cast photos will look like for Glee season 5!

Hot off the heels of the somewhat bad news that Heather Morris, Amber Riley, Dianna Agron, Mark Salling and Harry Shum Jr. will not be returning to Glee season 5 as series regulars, Lea Michele waved a bright shiny object in another direction for Glee fans as she tweeted out pictures taken for the season 5 promos!

The first picture shows the main cast (sans the five actors omitted from next season):


Lea Michele followed that photo up with another “family photo” as she called it, showing most of the originals and Sam:


Glee season 5 will presumably pick up where season 4 left off. The New Directions won Regionals and Blaine was on his way to proposing to Kurt, just to name a couple plot lines.

It looks like we’re going to be seeing the seniors graduate without Brittany, who got early acceptance in to MIT (aka Heather Morris got pregnant).

It may be some time before we start seeing the promotional images for Glee season 5 released by Fox, but it’s great to know that the Glee train is back in service! And in case you missed it, Fox has announced that Glee season 5 will premiere Thursday, September 19th at 9/8c!

Do the photos Lea Michele tweeted from Glee season 5 get you excited for what’s to come this fall?
