Thursday nights on Fox will be all about Demi.
Demi Lovato will be joining the cast of Glee this season, according to star Lea Michele, who just tweeted, “Such amazing news that two of my very best friends are going to be on #Glee this year! @ddlovato & @PhoebeStrole! Thank you @MrRPMurphy!”
Demi Lovato is rumored to play Dani, a NYC-based struggling artist friend of Rachel and Santana’s who will regularly appear with Adam Lambert’s incoming character, according to TVLine, who reported Lovato was in talks. The current X Factor judge — now known mostly for her music — was an actress on the Disney Channel show Sonny with a Chance.
Theater fans may be more excited for the announcement about Phoebe Strole. The Broadway vet was in the original cast of Spring Awakening with Michele. She also was in the cult fav Hamlet 2 as well as played a pregnant teen in one episode of 30 Rock.
Glee returns with Season 5 on Thursday, Sept. 26.
Despite an upbeat teaser trailer for Glee‘s fifth season, fans aren’t quite sure what to expect from a season without Cory Monteith’s Finn Hudson.
But we do know at least one thing: The season’s third episode will be a memorial for Monteith. What that episode will hold or how it will fit into the Glee universe is yet to be determined, but Glee‘s own Jane Lynch took to Twitter today after reading the script for the memorial episode, calling it the “most beautiful thing.”

The first teaser trailer for the new season of Glee has arrived, and it appears the show wants to remind viewers it’s going back to basics.
It’s upbeat and colorful, with no mention of Cory Monteith or pictures of Finn. Instead, viewers can check out a montage of happy moments from the previous season, alongside the message, “Once again with feeling…Once again with drama…Once again with passion…Are you ready to go once again?”
Mr. Schuster replies, “Let’s get started.” Watch below: READ FULL STORY
Finn Hudson won’t die of a drug overdose, Glee creator Ryan Murphy announced Thursday via an interview with Deadline.
Murphy shared that the Glee crew has been hard at work figuring out how to write Finn Hudson out of the show. As was previously reported, Murphy shared that the first two episodes of the Fox dramedy will be a long-in-the-works Beatles tribute that only needed some slight reworking in the wake of this tragedy.
The third episode of the season will be the memorial episode for Cory Monteith/Finn Hudson. “There were a lot of things that we had to decide — how are we going to deal with his death?” Murphy said. “At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered. But we have decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that. Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, ‘This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.’ That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way.” READ FULL STORY
Mike O’Malley talked about the passing of his Glee co-star Cory Monteith while promoting his new NBC sitcom Welcome to the Family on Saturday.
O’Malley plays Monteith’s stepfather Burt Hummel on the Fox series, and recalled one searing scene in which Finn (Monteith) used a homophobic slur.
“I had many of my scenes on Glee usually with either Chris [Colfer] or Cory and I think I had what was probably the toughest scene I’ve ever acted in my career as an actor opposite him,” O’Malley said. “I had to throw his character, Finn, out of the house because of a slur he used. It was remarkable to me when we were shooting that scene over and over the depth of emotion he was able to portray … the sorrow, the shame…”
O’Malley called Finn the fictional quarterback on the show and a very real quarterback for the cast behind the scenes. “He was an incredibly warm guy, a guy who was welcoming to everyone who came on that show … he was a very hard-working actor. I loved working with him, he was a great guy. I miss him very much.”
O’Malley said he wasn’t sure if he was going to be a part of the Glee episode next season honoring Finn, but said he hopes he will. “Burt is a very important role to me, it’s been a great part and I’ve said to all those guys, ‘I’ll work early in the morning, late at night, Saturday, Sunday, whatever I need to do to participate and continue to be on that show honoring Cory and his passing and that character.”
Glee doesn’t start production on season 5 until next month, but on Thursday, the close-knit cast and crew got together for a private memorial in honor of Cory Monteith, who was found dead July 13 at age 31.
“Today, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith,” Fox said in a statement to EW. “We thank the public for their continued outpouring of love and support as we grieve our friend and colleague during this difficult time.”
Following Monteith’s tragic death, production on the new season was delayed, as was the season premiere, which is now set for Thursday, Sept. 26, a week later than originally scheduled.

The young stars of Glee were largely unknown before landing their breakout roles back in 2009, and they’ve grown up together in the spotlight. That’s why Cory Monteith’s death more than a week ago hit the group especially hard — they hadn’t lost just a co-star; they’d lost a family member.
Tributes have poured in from Monteith’s co-stars, including Chord Overstreet dedicating a song to his late friend and Dianna Agron remembering his “enormous talent.” Now Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) has posted an Instagram photo of the tight-knit cast along with a message to Monteith:
