Glee Casting Scoop: Who's New on Season 6?

at .

As creator Ryan Murphy has said on multiple occasions, Glee Season 6 will return the show to its roots.

Rachel will come back to William McKinley High School and attempt to revive the choir, as the series will focus on its core characters over its final 13 episodes.

But that doesn't mean there won't be a handful of newbies roaming the hallways as well; Rachel does need new students to guide after all, doesn't she?

Via Facebook, Twitter and local news media interviews giving us the scoop, here’s a look at five new stars who will appear on Glee Season 6:

  • Noah Guthrie will play Roderick, a shy/overweight teenager with a voice like Otis Redding. Look for him to be the show's fresh underdog.
  • Marshall Williams will play Spencer, a football player with a great voice. Who happens to be gay. But no one will dare give Spencer a hard time about his sexuality.
  • Samantha Ware will play Jane, a righteous and ambitious student without a sense of humor. She originally wanted to be a Warbler.
  • Billy Lewis Jr. will play Mason, the male half of a new set of twin Cheerios. He’s very enthusiastic and a bit strange.
  • Laura Dreyfuss will play Madison, a new member of the Cheerios and the sister of Mason. Also very positive and extremely weird.

Glee Season 6 Episode 1 (and Episode 2!) will air on Friday, January 9 at 8/7c.

Glee Quotes

Thank you so much, it really is a pleasure. While the boys chose a selection of songs that casts an eye inward on the irresponsible life choices and sexual hunger of today's modern teens we have chosen a selection of songs that speaks of the nation as a whole during these troubling times filled with economic uncertainty and unbridled social woes, because if there's two things America needs right now, that is sunshine and optimism! Also angels.
