We know that a good season finale is supposed to leave you with unanswered questions. You’re supposed to come back wanting more. That’s the reason cliffhangers were invented!

Still after watching Glee’s Season 3 finale, Episode 22: "Goodbye," we’re left with so many questions about what’s to come this fall in Season 4 — that we barely know where to begin.

Luckily, plenty of information has already started to trickle out concerning what we can expect for the New Directions, and the graduated senior, next year. Ready for the inside scoop on what’s to come? Here’s your spoiler roundup for everything we know about Season 4 so far.

WHO IS COMING BACK?

- No Glee Spin-Off — But Lea Michele Is Back for Season 4!
Remember back when we thought there might be a Glee spinoff? Well, the network vetoed that idea, but it sounds like many of the ideas for the spinoff will very much be incorporated into Glee Season 4.

- Glee Season 4: Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer Now Confirmed — Rachel, Kurt, and Finn are Back!
That’s right, all three are officially confirmed to return next season. (So we’re following Finn to boot camp, too? Well, we guess now Glee can has an excuse to cover "Eye of the Tiger"...)

- Glee Season 4 Casting Update: Everyone Is Returning! But What’s the Catch?
Ryan Murphy has confirmed that ALL main characters will be back next season. Only problem is: He didn’t specify for how many episodes. Don’t count them in as series regulars just yet!

- Chord Overstreet Gets a Promotion! Plus, 15 Others Plan to Return 
That Glee magic you know and love isn't going anywhere!
