26 Sep 2013
Following the death of star Cory Monteith, the hit series "Glee" is slated to return to Fox Sept. 26. The show will air two previously written episodes that pay tribute to the Beatles as well as an episode that addresses the death of Monteith's character, Finn Hudson.
As previously reported, singer-songwriter Demi Lovato will join the series for a multi-episode arc as Dani, a New York City-based struggling artist friend of Rachel (Lea Michele) and Santana (Naya Rivera). She will also interact with the new character played by "American Idol" runner-up and Wicked actor Adam Lambert.
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
