Glee may have just wrapped up earlier this week, but the return of The Glee Project is already just about here!
Season 2 of The Glee Project premieres at 10pm on Oxygen on Tuesday, June 5 — switching things up from its previous time slot on Sundays.
But if your Glee-universe withdrawals are just so big that even two weeks feels like an eternity to wait, worry not. Oxygen has already released a special full-length bonus episode that focuses on auditions and casting for this year’s final 14.
Available on Hulu, the episode shows how casting director Robert Ulrich, choreographer Zach Woodlee, vocal producer Nikki Anders, and creator Ryan Murphy narrowed down thousands of Glee hopefuls into their final Season 2 cast.
Last year’s Glee Project winners, Damian McGinty (Rory) and Samuel Larsen (Joe), along with finalists Alex Newell (Wade) and Lindsay Pearce (Harmony) make brief appearances, but no Lea Michele (Rachel) quite yet. That won’t be until the June 5 premiere!
Take a look at the casting special, then head to the comments to tell us what you thought. Any early favorites? We want to know which of this year’s hopefuls you think has a chance to win it all!
