They’re baack! Gwyneth Paltrow and Kristin Chenoweth are gearing up for a return to the Fox hit “Glee” after their respective guest appearances. According to People, both actresses (and singers) have been confirmed to reprise their roles as Holly Holiday and April Rhodes. Not only will we see more of those women, but we’ll hear more from Lady Gaga as well!
EW learned exclusively from “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy of Paltrow’s return:
“Gwyneth is coming back for two episodes. She’s coming back specifically to date [Matthew Morrison's character] Will,” Murphy tells EW. “Those two have become really good friends in real life and had really good chemistry. She’s coming back as a sex education teacher. Gwyneth and I are emailing, talking every week: What are we gonna sing? We’re trying to do something fantastic. So she’ll be [in episodes] 15 and 16. She comes back [to film] in January and she’s with us for three and a half weeks I think.”
As for the infusion of more Lady Gaga, her highly anticipated upcoming single “Born This Way” will be featured on the show.
“I love that that song is anthem,” says Murphy. “This show is by nature optimistic and I think a character like Karofsky could turn to booze or pills or alcohol and kill themselves or do something dark. But I also love Max and I love that character and I sorta want that character to have a happy ending. So I don’t really know what that’s going to be, but I do know we’re going to do a whole episode that’s about that song.”
And for those of you who have been waiting to see the wispy-haired Justin Bieber on the show, People has confirmed that those rumors are not true. It’s not happening. Let it go.
What do you think of Paltrow and Chenoweth returning to the show? Will you watch?
