Darren Criss Talks GLEE's 100th Episode & NYC Storyline Future Plans

Darren Criss Talks GLEE's 100th Episode & NYC Storyline Future PlansBroadway headliner and Glee breakout star Darren Criss shared some new details about the 100th episode of the hit FOX musical dramedy series as well as previewed what we can expect when the show brings its focus primarily to New York City later this year as part of a new interview.

Discussing the new NYC storyline of the series, Criss shares, "I think that the whole New York thing is really, really cool because it puts these kids in a new framework of new challenges."

Furthermore, Criss opines, "They are new challenges - when you move to a new city; when you graduate highschool - I mean, that's a huge thing!"

Additionally, Criss reveals his affection for S5 guest star Adam Lambert, revealing, "I love Adam - he is a good pal and he is so outrageously talented."

The official description of GLEE's "100" is as follows: "Following the loss at Nationals and the subsequent and imminent disbanding of the Glee club by Principal Sue, former gleeks return to McKinley to celebrate their shared history, and reflect on what the past one-hundred lessons have meant to them. Included in the returning throng are dueling divas Rachel and Mercedes who, despite each making great strides in their own fields seem determined to revive an old feud; a new-and-improved Puck who, as a recent military inductee, is intent on impressing and possibly reconnecting with former girlfriend - and mother of his child - Quinn, but gets an unwelcome surprise in the process; MIT student and mathematical savant Brittany who, due to her uncanny though not wholly welcome natural talent for the Science of numbers, believes she has irrevocably lost with her creative streak; and Broadway bad-girl and borderline alcoholic April Rhodes, who may have a fix to the doomed club's problems... but not if Sue has anything to say about it."

Of note, the highly anticipated 100th episode airs on March 18.
