Glee will continue to film most of its Season 4 scenes at Paramount Studios in Hollywood like it always has. Yet in order to make the NYC scenes more believable, they will need to toss in a few scenes here and there that show the actors walking around the streets of New York.
Glee shoots about one episode a week, but making the trip to NYC for filming once a week just doesn’t seem practical. So how will it work? Creator Ryan Murphy revealed back in June that the show plans to fly to The Big Apple about once every five weeks or so. They’ll film scenes for a bunch of upcoming episodes all at once, before returning to L.A. to film all the indoor New York City shots.
So far, Glee has made one trip to New York, which happened the weekend of August 11 and 12. The scenes filmed could show up in any of the first four episodes of the season, so don’t expect to see them all together at once.
Here’s a breakdown of what’s been filmed so far, organized by the day on which the shoot took place. Take a look!
2. A Brody-Rachel scene in Washington Square Park - In this scene, Brody flirts with Rachel at the park, and they take a cute picture together on her cell phone. It’s not known yet which of the first four episodes this scene is meant for.
3. Kurt and Rachel’s happy reunion - We know that Kurt starts off Season 4 still in Ohio, but he’s with Rachel in New York sometime before Episode 4. This cute scene at the park where Kurt surprises Rachel could be in any of the episodes in between.
2. Rachel talks to Brody while he’s working out in the park.
Brody and Rachel meet again in a park, but they don’t look quite as friendly this time. Is it just us, or does she look slightly upset with him? In any case, Brody is looking even more attractive than usual. Anyone else think that he should wear workout gear more often?
