Sneak Peek At GLEE Cast Filming New Christmas Special

Sneak Peek At GLEE Cast Filming New Christmas SpecialChristmas is coming a few weeks early in the form of a special sneak peek at the recently rumored and now confirmed holiday episode of GLEE, currently filming on location in Los Angeles, with a musical preview leaked via social media.

The cast and crew of the hit FOX musical dramedy series was spotted shooting an elaborately festive musical number for the forthcoming holiday episode - Episode 8 of Season Five - this weekend at the Burbank Town Center Mall in Los Angeles.

Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Naya Rivera can be spotted in slightly scandalous holiday attire alongside elves, reindeer and Santa Claus himself in the new clip of the cast recording the "Here Comes Santa Claus" musical sequence.

Of note, Glee creator Ryan Murphy recently teased the upcoming "previously unaired" episode via Twitter, as BroadwayWorld reported here, though it appears that was a mere meta comment relating to the episode being a flashback as it occurs in the Glee dramatic universe and not actually a long-lost show filmed in the past.

Furthermore, last week, I asked Darren Criss about the episode as part of our extensive InDepth InterView and he exclusively confirmed its existence, as reported here.

GLEE airs Thursdays at 9 PM on FOX.
