Lea Michele Reveals What She Knows About GLEE's Final Season
In a recent interview on Entertainment Weekly Radio Sirius XM 105 with Tim Stack, Glee star Lea Michele opened up about what she does know about the upcoming sixth and final season of the FOX musical dramedy.
"I'm scared, I can't say anything," she joked, before reaffirming that the season "is not set in New York". She went on to share, "I know what I will be doing, I know what Darren will be doing, I know what Chord will be doing and Jane."
The actress explained how the cast members shared what's ahead for their individual characters in order to map out the entire story line. "He's [Ryan] told us individually our stuff...we all shared our stuff and then we put all of the pieces together and then we figured out what's happening next year, it's very exciting," she gushed, adding "I think being our last season it's just back to the basics of what we love about Glee and I'm really looking forward to taking on a new role this year."
Glee is a musical comedy about a group of ambitious and talented kids who escape the harsh realities of high school by joining a Glee club, where they find strength, acceptance and, ultimately, their voice. Last year's graduates and aspiring singers, RACHEL BERRY (Lea Michelle) and KURT HUMMEL (Chris Colfer), packed their bags for New York and enrolled at a prestigious performing arts school, NYADA, where they made new friends and learned the cruel realities of college. These naïve freshmen moved into a Brooklyn loft, signed up for internships, auditioned for Broadway shows and gained a roommate when SANTANA LOPEZ (Naya Rivera) moved to the Big Apple.
Since its debut, Glee has become a bona fide cultural phenomenon, received prestigious honors, including a Golden Globe Award and a Peabody Award, and singlehandedly made Glee clubs cool again. The series boasts critical acclaim, a die-hard fan base, two Grammy Award nominations, two platinum and five gold albums, more than 43 million songs and more than 13 million albums sold worldwide, two sold-out concert tours, a 3-D movie and four Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes, including the award for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical.
