Glee won’t say farewell without an actual glee club. Though New Directions was shut down last season, the final year of the Fox dramedy will resurrect the club with a surprising new leader.

Glee won’t be returning for its final run until 2015, but it will be a shorter season than previously expected. EW has confirmed that the Fox series’ last batch of episodes will be 13 instead of the previously announced 22.
Former Fox head Kevin Reilly told reporters in May that the order for the series could change. “We need to sit down with [creator] Ryan Murphy on how to end it,” Reilly said. “The advantage of airing it later in the season is that it doesn’t have to feel the pressure of delivering.”
Talk about a rough landing: Chris Colfer was getting off an hours-long flight from London to L.A. when he found out his Twitter had been hacked and the hacker had told the entire internet that Colfer was let go from Glee. “It sucked,” Colfer–who is definitely not let go from Glee–told Jessica Shaw in an Entertainment Weekly Radio interview.

This morning, Glee star Lea Michele’s Twitter account delivered what seemed at first glance to be big news. “Before this gets out to the media,” read a post that went live at 11:20 AM, “I would like to announce to my fans that I am pregnant #BabyBoy.”
The post was quickly removed, however, and the actress’s reps have confirmed that it was a hoax tweet from a hacker.
If the message itself didn’t seem a little off—check out that clumsy hashtag—there was already reason to suspect it wasn’t legit. Yesterday, Glee star Chris Colfer’s Twitter briefly displayed a message claiming that he was being “let go” from the show due to “personal issues.” The tweet was subsequently removed, and Colfer announced that he’d been hacked.
Is the proximity between the two prank tweets a coincidence, or is someone systematically targeting Glee on Twitter? It’s unclear for now, but one thing’s certain—until everything gets sorted out, it might be a good idea to take any Glee-related news breaking online with a grain of salt.
Glee‘s upcoming sixth season will be its last, which means, sadly, that television will be losing one of its most brilliant characters: Sue Sylvester.
Played by Jane Lynch, Sue has captured audiences since the show first hit the small screen in 2009. With her ruthless, menacing antics and offensive one-liners, Sue, at first glance, is pure evil. But counterbalanced by a tenderness toward her sister, Jean, and Cheerios cheerleader Becky, both of whom have Down syndrome, there is something very sweet and compassionate about Sue as well. Sue is complex, one of the great female antiheroes.
When we last saw Sue in season 5, she had taken over as principal of William McKinley High School and also started up a romance with Mario (Chris Parnell) while visiting New York. Here, Lynch picks up where the show left off, telling Entertainment Weekly how the show might end, how she’d like it to end, her favorite Sue moments, and what life after Glee might be like.

'Glee': Are Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy teaming for a real 'Funny Girl' Broadway revival? -- EXCLUSIVE
This season of Glee has seen Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) win her dream role as Fanny Brice in a Broadway revival of Funny Girl.

Earlier this year, Michele gave interviews saying that the pair were indeed interested in bringing Girl to the stage.
Now, Murphy is confirming those discussions. While sitting down with EW for this week’s cover on his adaptation of HBO’s The Normal Heart, Murphy revealed, “I have the rights to it. It’s something that we’re talking about. I’ve never done Broadway. I’ve always wanted to. Right now, we’re just sort of testing the waters with different people.” READ FULL STORY

Glee has landed yet another legendary guest star, and this time it’s one Shirley MacLaine, who will appear in two episodes this season as June Dolloway, a wealthy socialite and NYADA donor who takes a special interest in Blaine (Darren Criss) when they cross paths.
In anticipation of MacLaine’s Glee debut on April 29 (at 8 p.m. on Fox), the showbiz great chatted with EW about the show’s grueling schedule and how it felt to kick her heels up once again.
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: The first question: Are you a big Glee fan? Do you watch the show?
SHIRLEY MACLAINE: Sometimes I do, sometimes I don’t. It’s one of those things. Love the talent of all the kids, love that they can do so much in a week. It’s extraordinary. All my young friends really loved the idea [of me doing the show]. I don’t know why, but they do!
How long has it been since you’ve last dug into this musical side?
Oh come on, I haven’t lifted a leg or sung a note even in the shower. This is not something I’m really accustomed to. So it’s very stimulating… I’m loving it, let’s put it that way. READ FULL STORY
