A few days ago, Ryan Murphy released the first two pieces of artwork for Glee‘s upcoming fourth season. Today, he unleashed 25 new pieces of promotional material including character posters and stills from the show’s season premiere, airing on Thursday, September 13 @ 9pm. Like the previously released official cast photo, there are notable omissions including Quinn (Dianna Agron) and Emma (Jayma Mays). Murphy assured both are back, but inquiring minds want to know why they’ve been MIA thus far.
On the season premiere, titled “The New Rachel“, Kurt assists Will in finding potential recruits for New Directions, since half the members have graduated. Two of the new recruits include Jake Puckerman, Puck’s younger half-brother, played by Jacob Artist and Marley portrayed by Melissa Benoist. Meanwhile in New York, Rachel begins school at NYADA where she meets a handsome upperclassman, named Brody (Dean Geyer). Kate Hudson also begins her eight episode stint as tough dance instructor, Cassandra July. Get your first look at the season premiere below, along with the show’s fresh new faces and returning cast members.
