‘Glee’ season 4: Dianna Agron absent from cast photo — is all well?

Now that the September 13 return of “Glee” is rapidly approaching on Fox, producers behind the hit show are now pulling out just about every stop in order to get the revamped version of the show out there for all to see.

The first major piece of publicity released by Fox is their new cast photo, whcih is interesting for a number of reasons. First and foremost, Puck has lost the mohawk! Considering how much Mark Salling probably hated the cut, he’s probably more than a little bit thrilled to have gotten rid of it. (Matthew Morrison also has shorter hair now.) The other thing that is interesting is that despite them both returning to the show this year, neither Samuel Larsen nor Alex Newell are featured here — despite the presence of newcomers Jacob Artist, Becca Tobin, Melissa Benoist, and Dean Geyer. Rachel’s pink suitcase (which in no way holds all of her wardrobe) even ends up making a cameo! Even more significantly, Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Jayma Mays (Emma) are absent altogether — but don’t take this as a sign to panic, since they are both still planning to be a part of the show albeit in a more limited capacity.

There is also something interesting about the street signs in that not every location is fully represented — including where Santana is going in the University of Louisville, where Quinn will be in New England, and where Mike Chang will be venturing off to in Chicago. Once again, this is probably not a slight as much as it is a creative decision to include places here that are far away from each other.
