'Glee' to Tackle Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours,' Paltrow and Chenoweth to Return
"Glee" co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy revealed plenty of secrets about the show's future during a panel at the Paley Center's Television Festival last night (Mar. 16), according to reports from TVLine.
Fans who enjoyed last week's rendition of "Landslide" will see the New Directions revisiting Fleetwood Mac material. The show has been granted right to the band's classic 1977 album, "Rumours," which Murphy revealed will be the show's first dip into an album-centric musical ode.
Among the juiciest character-driven revelations included the "Glee" return of Kristin Chenoweth (during season two) and Gwyneth Paltrow (during season three), as well as Kurt's McKinley High (and New Directions) homecoming.
In regards to Paltrow, Murphy revealed that the actress, who plays recent Schue love interest Holly Holliday, is "sort of the muse of the show" and that he is making plans for her to "come back next year." Murphy added: "She's somebody who I write on the weekends and say, 'What do you think about this for an episode even if you're not in it?' She has opinions. She's great."
Kristin Chenoweth will also reprise her role -- as singer-plagued-by-alcoholism Aril Rhodes, singing an all-too-appropriate original song "It's 10 am, I'm Drunk" during this season's "Glee."
As for Blaine and Kurt, who finally shared an on-screen kiss during this week's "Glee," the PaleyFest panel gave insight into their future. The duo will attempt to attend prom together in an upcoming episode, and will eventually be separated by distance when Kurt transfers back to McKinley High, hinted Murphy and Chris Colfer (who plays Kurt).
However, it was also suggested during PaleyFest that Blaine would audition for the New Directions during season three, alluding that that both characters will transfer schools. The new couple apparently sees its share of obstacles, as do most "Glee" romances.
