Both Menzel (Wicked, Rent) and Groff (Spring Awakening) were previously announced to guest star on the hit series, but airdates for their episodes had not been revealed.
Menzel will portray Shelby, the coach of McKinley High's rival glee club Vocal Adrenaline. Groff (Spring Awakening) is set to appear as lead member of Vocal Adrenaline and a potential love interest for Rachel (portrayed by his former Spring Awakening co-star Lea Michele).
Here's what FOX has to say about the spring premiere: "In the 'Hell-o' episode, 'Glee' picks up as New Directions is fresh off their monumental win at Sectionals and feeling on top of the world. With an extra spring in their step, they get to work on new numbers for Regionals – including a memorable rendition of The Beatles' 'Hello, Goodbye.' But when Rachel and Finn's budding romance hits a bump in the road after she becomes involved with a competitor, Jesse St. James (Groff), it threatens to derail the entire club. Mr. Scheuster pays a visit to Shelby Corcoran (Menzel), coach of Vocal Adrenaline, to confirm Jesse’s motives. Meanwhile, Will is newly single, but is he ready to take his relationship with Emma to the next level? And to top it all off, Sue Sylvester returns from her condo in Boca with a renewed focus on destroying Will and disbanding the glee club."
"Glee" stars Broadway's Matthew Morrison, Michele and Jenna Ushkowitz, as well as Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Cory Monteith, Amber Riley and Mark Salling.
The premiere "Hell-o" episode will air at 9:30 PM ET April 13 on FOX. Visit Fox.
