Glee Season 5: Kurt’s Dad and [Spoiler] Coming Back!
Are we ever going to complain about getting to see more of Kurt's (Chris Colfer) dad, Burt Hummel (Mike O'Malley)? Nope, not ever. That's why we're thrilled that he'll be popping up on Glee soon — along with another familiar face!
New Glee episodes won't air until late February 2014, but that doesn't mean the cast is slacking off. Glee is currently in the process of shooting Season 5, Episode 11, which will be the show's 99th episode. It's likely to air on March 11.
One new reason to look forward to the episode is that it will feature an appearance by everyone's favorite TV dad, Burt, along with Burt's wife, Carole Hudson-Hummel (Romy Rosemont). Mike posted a cute photo on Twitter of himself smiling with Romy.
"Just shooting a little Burt scene with my gal Romy. #glee99th," Mike captions the shot. How sweet! And Mike presumably has more time in his schedule at the moment, given that his NBC sitcom, Welcome to the Family, has already been canceled.
We haven't seen Burt or Carole since Season 5, Episode 3: "The Quarterback," which was the emotional tribute to Cory Monteith. Both Mike and Romy were incredible in the episode, and we're interested to see how the characters have been doing since Finn's death.
So what do you think Burt will be doing in the episode? We can only assume that he and Carole will be visiting Kurt in NYC. Maybe they're in town to see a performance by Kurt's awesome new band, Pamela Lansbury?
