The cast hasn’t begun filming quite yet, but they are all meeting together to take the first official promo photos for Season 5. We know for a fact that Naya Rivera (Santana) will be there. On June 27, she tweeted, “Gallery shoot! #GleeSeason5”
Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina) tweeted, “It's already here?! It's a McKinley reunion today at the #gleeseason5 photoshoot!” She then posted a behind-the-scenes photo that also included Kevin McHale (Artie) and Jacob Artist (Jake).
At that point, the three high schoolers were all dress in their usual clothes. Later that day, Kevin posted an Instagram video of the cast taking some time off for a goofy dance break — and both Kevin and Tina were dressed in up in their graduation caps and gowns.
However, not everyone from the cast was present at the shoot. Matthew Morrison (Mr. Schuester) was in London yesterday, so we don’t think it’s likely that he would be back in the States already. Plus,Darren Criss (Blaine) is currently out on tour, and he has a concert in Philadelphia tonight. No way he was able to make it to the shoot. Perhaps they’ll be photographed later?
Also missing are Heather Morris (Brittany), Dianna Agron (Quinn), Mark Salling (Puck), Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), who have all been written off the show, save for a few possible guest appearances.
Sigh. Glee is back... but that doesn’t mean everyone will be returning. Why is change so hard to deal with?
