Glee’s 100th episode celebrations are fast approaching and it has been confirmed that Chace Crawford has signed up for the two-part anniversary bonanza.
The former Gossip Girl actor will apparently play Quinn Fabaray’s boyfriend on the episode when we see the vast majority of the original Glee Cast come back together.
Of course, Dianna Agron will reprise her role as Quinn Fabray and Crawford will play her new beau, Biff. He’s like a “Yalie degenerate,” according to Matthew Morrison.
Speaking to E! Online, Matthew Morrison who plays Glee teacher Will Schuester spilled the beans, in which he said: “I think he’s going to be Dianna Agron’s new love interest. His name is Biff. He’s kind of a Yalie degenerate”.
Glee’s special 100th episode celebrations will take place over two episodes on March 18 and 25, 2014.
Meanwhile, president of programming at FOX, Kevin Reilly has confirmed at the Television Critics Association winter press tour that the remaining episodes of the current season of Glee will take place in New York, which means we’ll be seeing more Lea Michele (Lea), Chris Colfer (Kurt), Naya Rivera (Santana), Chord Overstreet (Sam), Darren Criss (Blaine) and Amber Riley (Mercedes). Will we see more of Adam Lambert’s character? That’s yet to be revealed.
Speaking at the press tour, Reilly said: “Ryan Murphy pitched the arc all the way through next season. What’s going to happen this year is the kids will graduate and we’re going to go to New York exclusively through the second half of the year, and then he’s got some ideas about what we’re going to do for the final year”.
But, if we’re going to be seeing more of the New York lot, what’s going to happen to those still at McKinley high? Well, according to Reilly, they’ll either graduate, move to New York or move onto other things. Will this signal the end of McKinley high? If the Glee kids have either graduated or moved on, that can only leave one option – New York. Will the final season be based primarily in the Big Apple?
Reilly revealed: “Some are going to be graduating and moving on. Creatively, it would be ridiculous if everybody moved to New York, so there’s going to be some who are going to graduate and move on. And they’ll come back in when we do special episodes”.
It’s intriguing to see where the rest of the fifth season will go and what will happen for the sixth and final season later this year.
The second half of the fifth season will return to FOX on February 25 at 8/9c.
