You’ve been waiting for the “Glee” season 5 finale finale almost as anxiously as Rachel Berry has been for a Broadway audition, and it’s coming on Thursday night. As a matter of fact, odds are that you’ve probably already seen the episode as you are reading this.
So with that, let’s take a look into a crystal ball and talk about what could be coming up down the road in the show’s fifth season. Ryan Murphy has the (rare) luxury of knowing that there are now two seasons left for him, which gives him the opportunity to play around and experiment without the desperation feeling of getting kicked to the curb at any moment. One thing that he’s trying? Pulling a “True Blood” (at least a few seasons of it) and picking up the new season almost immediately after the events of the finale.
Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Jacob Artist confirms this lack-of-a-time jump by reminding us that at least part of season 5 will focus on the remainder of the school year, and while we’re hoping for some treasured summer vacation (since we know that this part of the year does in fact exist), there is no guarantee that we are going to witness some of the students going through this.
Meanwhile, Jacob also opened up about his secret desire to put on his “Suit & Tie” for some sort of performance in the new year:
“I would love to have him have like an epic Justin Timberlake dance number on the stage. Growing up as a dancer, the stage is really where I love to be performance wise. Like some ‘Cry Me a River’ maybe? I wouldn’t hate that.”
Hey, “Glee” is oftentimes a “what you want is what you get” sort of show. Remember that Kevin McHale managed to will Katey Sagal on the show thanks to his own dreams of making it happen.
