Over the course of this weekend, “Glee” has been an emotional mess in many ways courtesy of the series finale wrapping up. This show has been more than six years in the making, and with such a robust lineup of guest stars (you saw many of them in a recent Lea Michele photo), there is a sentiment that the show is really going to be giving almost every person who has ever been important to the show over the years their do.
There are a few names left off of the following list that will be returning, but even with that in mind, this list from a new Fox press release is pretty definitive: Geraldo Rivera as himself; Jonathan Groff as Jesse St. James; Andrew Rannells as himself; Mark Salling as Noah Puckerman; Kevin McHale as Artie Abrams; Amber Riley as Mercedes Jones; Jenna Ushkowitz as Tina Cohen-Chang; Jayma Mays as Emma Pillsbury; Dianna Agron as Quinn Fabray; Naya Rivera as Santana Lopez; Heather Morris as Brittany S. Pierce; Jessalyn Gilsig as Terri Schuester; Melissa Benoist as Marley Rose; Jacob Artist as Jake Puckerman; Alex Newell as Unique and Blake Jenner as Ryder.
Excited? It is ultimately hard not be when you have so many familiar faces! The two most interesting additions here to us are Geraldo (who we mostly know as a massive trainwreck from this past season of “The Celebrity Apprentice”) and also Andrew, who is a Ryan Murphy favorite from “The New Normal.” Could he be a co-star of Rachel Berry’s if she goes back to Broadway.
This finale will air on Fox on Friday, March 20; stay tuned for more!
