Lea Michele (Rachel), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Darren Criss (Blaine), Chord Overstreet (Sam), Jane Lynch (Sue), Matthew Morrison (Will) and Kevin McHale (Artie), as well as Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Dot-Marie Jones (Coach Beiste) will comprise the main cast of the final season. Naya Rivera (Sanatana) and Max Adler (Karofsky) are also confirmed to return in recurring roles, with many other McKinley alums expected to show up.
As for the plot, Rachel Berry will return to Ohio after a humiliating failure as a TV star. She will be searching for her purpose, which of course will be trying to rebuild the glee club at McKinley that Sue has ended. Meanwhile, Blaine, Sam and Will all have new gigs in Ohio.
The final run of 13 episodes will bring the focus back to Lima and McKinley after spreading out to New York over the past two years. Are you excited to see Glee
