'Glee' has understandably commanded its fair share of headlines in recent months, even as the series is poised to wrap up its final season in 2015, but it seems longtime fans of the series have some seriously good news: the upcoming 100th episode will feature the returns of most of the original cast, including repeat guest star and Broadway sensation Kristin Chenoweth.
It is no easier for me to report this than it is for you to hear it, but we're all adults and let's get real: Robert De Niro's name on a film project is now more a red flag of warning than a sign of quality. For every 'Silver Linings Playbook' there's a 'Big Wedding' or 'Righteous Kill' or a slapped-together piece of tone-deaf dross like 'The Family.'
For as much as we knew 'Glee' season 5 to be affected by actor Cory Monteith's death, airing two episodes and a tribute before pausing production to retool the series, we were surprised to hear such series stars as Heather Morris and Dianna Agron being left out of the Monteith tribute episode. And while the franchise remains a bit up in the air, Agron's absence may extend much further than "The Quarterback" farewell to Finn.
There are a great deal of question marks floating around 'Glee's next season, given all the turnover and flip-flopping series creator Ryan Murphy has done over which stars would graduate and/or leave the series at the end of the current season. Now that production has wrapped, are the stars playing coy or being open about their commitment to another season?
