Glee has been with us for almost five years now — since May 19, 2009 — and the show is just a few months away from hitting a huge TV milestone. On March 18, 2014, the Fox comedy will air its 100th episode.
Season 5, Episode 12 is titled “100” and it will feature the long-awaited return of some very beloved favorites, including both Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Heather Morris (Brittany). Filming for the episode has only just begun, but we’ve already learned a thing or two about what to expect.
Take a look at the spoilers available so far and we’ll continue to update you as filming continues and more information leaks:
No new songs will be performed during the episode. Instead, each tune will be a remix of a previous favorite, all voted on by fans at the end of last year.
In early December, Glee creator Ryan Murphy took to Twitter to announce that “ALL The Glee Originals” had been invited back for Episode 100.
Fans were very confused when Dianna wasn’t in Glee’s Cory Monteith tribute. The actress said she wasn’t asked to take part, while Ryan maintained that she never expressed interest to him in the first place. This time around all the miscommunication seems to be worked out. Ryan officially asked Dianna to be in “100,” and she said “yes.” Quinn is back!
Also returning is Heather, who appears to have left acting behind to focus on her baby son, Elijah. But 100 episodes is a big deal, so HeMo has agreed to don that Cheerios uniform once more.
Heather and Di aren’t the only returning grads. See who else will be popping up in Episode 12.
Apparently, “all the Glee originals” wasn’t limited to just the kids! Kristin Chenoweth is returning to reprise her role as Schue’s former love interest, April.
That said, this Season 1 staple won’t be returning.
Prepare to break out the tissues.
And not just one time, either.
Brittany and Santana might be broken up, but that doesn’t mean they’ll avoid each other when Brit makes her big return. Nope, fans can for sure expect some Brittana scenes. (Commence fangirl squealing now.)
This song spoiler is still only a rumor at this point. But it comes from a reliable source, and the idea of the Unholy Trinity doing a Britney song...well, that be just too good to pass up!
It's so good to see her back!
So, should we be worried... or really ridiculously excited?
Best. News. Ever.
Hmm. Looks like we're still going to have to wait to know for sure.
Yep. It's just as awesome as we imagined.
He might be gone, but he is certainly not forgotten.
Giving the gravity of this milestone episode, we're glad the show is once again taking time to honor Finn.
