Glee Season 5 premieres on September 26, and now FOX has released the first official headshots of the main cast members. The colorful photos show Rachel (Lea Michele) and Santana (Naya Rivera) looking sassy and confident in NYC. Kurt (Chris Colfer) is dressed flawlessly, too, his hair styled into the perfect pouf.
Over at McKinley High School, Sam (Chord Overstreet) is grinning big, while Blaine (Darren Criss) gives off a more subdued smile. But something about the look makes his eyebrows look particularly bold and triangular... and we kind of love it. Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz) is smiling confidently, and her long wavy hair looks right out of a shampoo commercial.
Up next, we have Marley (Melissa Benoist) looking bright-eyed, fresh-faced, and all sorts of adorable. Her onscreen love interest, Jake (Jacob Artist), has a huge smile, quite the difference from his usual bad boy/has a grudge against the world demeanor. Also there is her real-life love interest, Ryder (Blake Jenner). Melissa and Blake are dating, and even rumored to be engaged, though neither of them has confirmed it.
Unique (Alex Newell) looks confident and fabulous in a bright outfit and colorful print scarf. Artie (Kevin McHale) is wearing his signature glasses and one of those familiar vests, while his soon-to-be girlfriend Kitty (Becca Tobin) gives her best cheerleader grin in that familiar Cheerios uniform.
So far, we have no photos of new NYC character Dani (Demi Lovato) or of new Cheerio Bree (Erin Westbrook). And, of course, Finn (Cory Monteith), is also missing, since his character will be written off inEpisode 3 as a result of Cory’s sudden passing this summer.
What do you think of Glee’s brand new promo pics? We’re loving the bright colors, but we’re definitely hoping to see even more shots as the premiere draws nearer.
