While Glee's Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) pursues her Broadway dreams in New York, the McKinley High students are ready to get to work on the school's production of Grease. Even though Berry recently graduated, and split with boyfriend Finn, the aspiring actress is making sure she catches her friends as they suit up in the leather jackets and Pink lady outfits of Rydell High.
“Finn (Corey Monteith) is working on the show and Blaine (Darren Criss) is in the show, so Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Rachel come back to see both of their exes,” Michele told The Hollywood Reporter. “It's a very emotional return to McKinley. It's the first time they've come seen them since the breakups. It's filled with a lot of weird emotions as all breakups are.”
In recent years Glee's popularity paved the way for many other song-centric projects, including the new hit film Pitch Perfect, which stars Michele's former Spring Awakening co-star Skylar Astin. So when can Glee fans expect to Astin guest star on the show? “We've been trying!" Michele said. "I wanted them to see him for Brody and for so many characters along the way, but he just has to stop being a movie star and doing so many movies! I'm his biggest fan, he's one of my best friends, and I couldn't be happier for him and his success. The minute I can get him on Glee, I want him on the show.”
Glee returns to TV on November 8. Tune in to see what happens during Rachel and Finn’s reunion, and keep your eyes peeled for Astin one day!
