After a four-month hiatus, Glee is finally returning to Fox tonight at 9:28/8:28c. I got the chance to catch up with one of the show's stars, Kevin McHale (picture courtesy Fox), who plays Artie Abrams on the hit musical comedy.
I am very excited that Glee is finally back tonight — it seems like it's been away forever!
I know, it does seem like forever, doesn't it? We are very excited to be back.
What can we expect for tonight's show?
Tonight sets everything back up. It’s two weeks after Sectionals, and it reintroduces the story lines: who’s together, who’s not together. We also get some new characters — the lead singer and the coach of Vocal Adrenaline, played by Jonathan Groff and Idina Menzel. There’s the Will and Emma story line, and what’s going on with Rachel and Finn. And just, the Gleeks are getting focused for Regionals. In tonight’s episode, there are definitely some love triangles that you didn’t think would come up yet — a little Santana, Brittany and Finn kind of thing.
I was happy when Artie and Tina got together earlier in the season, but that was squelched. Now I hear rumors that they might be getting back together?
It does come up again next week, in the Madonna episode. The episode is like Glee on steroids. At the end of it, you are exhausted, because it is overstimulating. There is so much stuff packed into an hour — it feels like a movie. It’s definitely my favorite episode. But back to the Artie and Tina thing, I think they kind of fit together, so we’ll see how long they end up staying together — if that happens.
You can catch the full interview next week, but I hope you enjoyed this sneak peek — and enjoy the show tonight, fellow Gleeks!
