Brace yourselves, Klaine fans! Here’s some news for which you might not be prepared...

While the deal is not completely in place, it looks like come May, Grant Gustin (Sebastian aka Klaine Homewrecker!) will be promoted to a series regular for Glee’s fourth season!

The news comes from a source at E! Online who told them the show is “not finalizing any season four regulars until May,” but already says that it likely will be happening!

In addition, Sebastian is set to become more of a key player in the rest of season three and is said to have a “breakout episode” with January 24’s upcoming MJ tribute, Season 3, Episode 11: “Michael.”

Might this “breakout” action have something to do with the “crazy” scenes Darren Criss shot for the ep before running off to Broadway? That remains to be seen!

One reassuring tidbit? E! says a “little bird” told them that Sebastian’s interest in Blaine (Darren Criss) will wane as the season progresses. Whether that’s pre- or post- Klaine’s destruction, we don’t know just yet...

For now, Grant is addressing the “rumors” on Twitter, saying, “Thanks for all the congrats but this news is not official as of yet. I would love to be sticking around. I’ll be waiting for official word.”
