Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) will return to Ohio after failing as a ‘TV actress’ in the sixth and final season of ‘Glee‘. Her goal now is to revive the glee club after Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch) disbanded it. Sue remains as the show’s main antagonist, banishing all arts from McKinley High.
Michele, Criss, Overstreet, Lynch and Morrison will all return as series regulars and be joined by Chris Colfer (Kurt), Dot-Marie Jones (Coach Beiste), Kevin McHale (Artie) and Amber Riley (Mercedes). Naya Rivera will return with a reduced role. Max Adler has also booked a major recurring role in the final season, reprising his role as Dave Karofsky.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter that he thinks the final scene of the series will be emotional. It will also focus more on the original castmembers.
“It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that … dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season.”
With 13 episodes, Glee’s final season premiere date has not yet been determined.
