In preparation for the sixth and final season of Glee we’ve learned that four original cast members will be making appearances for one last time.
Earlier today E! broke the news confirming that Jenna Ushkowitz, Jayma Mays, Mark Salling and Dianna Agron would all be returning to McKinley High for one last hurrah. While they won’t be returning full-time for the last 13 episodes, they are all slated to appear as guest stars.
The last we saw of these characters they all appeared to get their happy endings. Puck and Quinn got back together, Emma had her baby, and Tina got accepted into Brown University, but we guess that wasn’t enough closure. While this is definitely great news, it’s only adding more people to an already packed cast.
It has been confirmed that Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Dot-Marie Jones, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Matthew Morrison, Chord Overstreet and Amber Riley will all be back as series regulars. But some of you were disappointed to learn that the show would be adding five new students to the mix.
That’s a lot of people to fit into only 13 episodes, but we aren’t going to complain about seeing some of our favorite faces one last time.
Are you excited for the return of the original cast members or is it adding too many people to the mix?
Glee is set to return for its final season in 2015.
