He's back: Jonathan Groff returning to 'Glee'!


Image Credit: Adam Rose/FOX

And he’s got some ‘splainin’ to do: Fox confirms to EW that Lea Michele’s former Spring Awakening co-star, Jonathan Groff, will return to Glee at the end of the season to wrap up his storyline with Michele’s Rachel. (Michael Ausiello at TV Line first reported the news.) Last we saw Groff’s character, Jesse St. James, he was singing “Bohemian Rhapsody” with Vocal Adrenaline — and breaking Rachel’s heart. (She discovered he may have been dating her just to spy on New Directions prior to Regionals.) He’ll be returning to McKinley High to ask Rachel for forgiveness. One request, Jesse: Stay away from “Sorry 2004.” (Reporting by Tim Stack)

    • Chelsea

      You’re an idiot.

    • Nikita

  • Jay

    If he and Blaine do a duet. I would literally pull a Rachel Zoe and DIE!

    So excited.

    • Matty

      This is awesome.

    • Brenda Barrett

      WHOO HOO. It’s about time! I hope it’s more than one ep, and that they leave the door open for a return.

    • j

      that would be dumb and eve out of left field for glee. Jon duets with Lea that is all that is needed.

  • Emily


  • eduardo

    now he must do a duet with Darren Criss and we will be happy forever

    • Jackson

      No. Jonathan is too talented to duet with Darren.

      He just needs to stick to singing with Lea and we will be happy forever.

    • kim

      darren is over rated, jon is the real deal no duet is needed.

  • Steph


    I thought they did horrible on how they ended his character last season- perhaps due to the fact they switched some episodes around so some things he did seemed odd.

    He’s an amazing singer, and I really liked his character. Glad he’ll be back, I actually quite liked him with Rachel.

    • Dan

      they switched some episodes around?

      • D

        Yes…I forgot why, but two episodes were switched, totally destroying the plot line and sequencing for Jesse and Rachel’s story. One minute, they were a couple, the next, he’s slushing her. It was crazy! A total fail.

      • Karen

        Yeah, the Gaga and Funk episodes were switched around.

      • jj45

        He was supposed to appear in the Lady Gaga episode. You can find pictures on him online in that red outfit Vocal Adrenaline was rehearsing in when Rachel confronts her mother. Still not happy Glee took a Jonathan episode away from me.

    • Ruby

      Agreed! That is pretty much the reason I stopped watching Glee after the first season. It is one of the crappiest-written shows on TV (Heroes is the first).

  • Chris

    I wish he would stay longer than to just wrap things up. He’s so dreamy!

  • Michael

    I dream of a world where Ryan Murphy missed his pith meeting that day.

    • Michael

      I also dream of another world where Ryan Murphy missed his PITCH meeting that day.

      • JL

        I dream of a day when people stop posting this “joke” on EVERY article about Glee. If you really wish that, don’t click on the link to the article!

  • Kate

    Soooo excited!!!! Hated how they ended that relationship. eek!

  • Julie

    OMG!!! I <3 Jonathan Groff!!!!!!!!! Can't wait to see him back on Glee! ^__^

  • abadstroller

    I’d like to see a humbled Jesse return to Lima, or be discovered by the McKinley kids in NYC–waiting tables at a kids’ pizza party palace, while trying to audition on “the Broadway” (as our favorite singing souse April Rhodes calls it) and getting turned down for jobs because he’s too “high school musical” (lack of caps intended).

      • abadstroller

        It’s okay…it happens in real life and can happen in GleeWorld because karma can be a witch.

  • steph


  • bruno

    and we’re giving michael ausiello credit for ANYTHING because….?

    • Jackson

      Because he’s the one who broke the story…..

  • tracy bluth

    Well, I never thought I’d say this, but…looks like I’ll be watching Glee again (well, only for the episodes he’s on).

  • kevin

    He was pretty good, but I never felt the relationship was unresolved, he was always just designed as a wrench to throw into the Rachel/Finn machine…and I expect this time around it will be more of the same.

    • Brenda Barrett

      But he was always a much better match for Rachel than Finn. Finn will never leave Lima.

      • Rachel

        I think that Jesse was supposed to be just a wrench thrown into the Finn/Rachel relationship but I also feel that Jesse’s a MUCH better match for Rachel than Finn is.

      • Chelsea

        Not only are the characters better matched, but as much as Glee tries to prove otherwise, Finn/Rachel’s chemistry is about a 5 at best. Whereas Lea/Jon have amazing chemistry from both their SA days as well as the fact they’re best friends in real life.
