New York City girl Rachel Berry may be hundreds of miles away from the New Directions when Glee returns for Season 4 this fall, but in real life, actress Lea Michele is filming her scenes right next door.

Lea just started filming her first scenes of Season 4 on the Paramount Lot in Los Angeles, and that means all her co-stars will be right on set nearby.

Getting ready now for my first day of shooting season 4!” Lea tweeted on July 25. “It's been the most amazing hiatus but now I'm soooo excited to get back to work!

As we saw in Glee’s first on-set photo of Season 4, the New Directions kids had their first day of filming the day before. So what are they up to today? Allow Lea to fill you in.

“Having the BEST first day back at work! Got to see Hemo, @JennaUshkowitz@druidDUDE and @DarrenCriss shooting a great number!” she wrote.

While Britney, Tina, Artie and Blaine are singing a song during Episode 1, Lea is off in (fake) New York City shooting her first scenes with a very special guest star. “Getting ready now to work with the AMAZING Kate Hudson! First scene in the dance studio at NYADA!” Lea tweeted.

That’s right: Rachel Berry is about to get her butt kicked in the NYADA dance studio. Best of luck, young grasshopper. You’re gonna need it!
