Glee returns to Fox in its new night and timeslot of Thursdays at 9 p.m. on September 13 with “The New Rachel,” which will see Rachel at NYADA and the New Directions trying to figure out what’s coming next. New photos are out teasing that first episode.
Season 4 Episode 1 “The New Rachel” Photos
The photos (below) show both Rachel at New York and those still back in Ohio. There are a couple showing Kate Hudson’s Cassandra, and it’s already been teased that her dance class is not going to be so easy for Rachel. Of course Rachel’s going to be belting out a song during the premiere (did you expect anything different?).
Meanwhile, back at McKinley, Kurt’s still going to be around after he didn’t get into NYADA, though he’ll be heading to New York soon to join Rachel. Until then, he and Blaine will get to spend time together, but could this be one of the last times before a possible break-up? That could be coming.
Since some of their strongest members have graduated, New Directions is going to need some new faces in Glee season 4, and it looks like two of them will be introduced to the rest of the club in the premiere. There’s Marley, played by Melissa Benoist, and one photo shows her standing with Will in the choir room. What will the others think of her? Will she end up being “the new Rachel” of New Directions? Also joining them this season is Unique, played by Alex Newell, and the caption for the photo of Unique, Brittany, Tina, and Blaine around Artie explains that they’re asking him to choose the next star of New Directions. That’s a tough one. You would think it would go to Tina after all this time, especially based on some things that were said at the end of season 2.
