Final Season of GLEE Begins Tonight!
After Rachel’s humiliating failure as TV actress, she comes home to Lima to figure out what she wants to do next. Upon discovering that Sue has banished the arts at McKinley, Rachel takes it upon herself to reinstate and lead the Glee Club. Meanwhile, Blaine, no longer in a relationship with Kurt, has moved home to coach the Warblers while Will is coaching rival Vocal Adrenaline, and Sam is the assistant coach for the McKinley football team. Then Puck, Quinn, Santana, Mercedes, Brittany, Artie and Tina all return to McKinley for Homecoming and help Rachel and Kurt recruit for the new glee club in the all-new, special two-hour “Loser Like Me/Homecoming” Season Premiere episode of GLEE airing Friday, Jan. 9 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

Following the epic failure of the very first episode of her semi-autobiographical live TV series, a humiliated – and now unemployed – Rachel flees Hollywood and returns home to Lima, Ohio looking for moral support and a reboot. Unfortunately, things at home aren’t any better, as she quickly discovers her two dads are in the midst of getting a divorce and their family home is being sold. Misery loves company, and Rachel reconnects with Blaine, who, following his breakup with Kurt and being cut from NYADA, has also returned home to Lima to lick his wounds, and has taken a position as the coach of the all-male Dalton Academy Glee Club, the Warblers. Also back home is Sam, who has given up his modeling career for the lower stress position as McKinley’s assistant football coach, and proud poppa Will has taken a job coaching McKinley’s bitter rivals, Vocal Adrenaline.
In the interim, Sue, McKinley’s new principal, has remade the school in her own image, disbanding the Glee Club and ridding the school of every last remnant of New Directions – and all arts classes and clubs in general – and turning it into a sports powerhouse. Meanwhile, in New York, Kurt tries to move on with his post-Blaine life but finds himself second-guessing his decision and getting a rude awakening. Back at McKinley, following an attitude intervention by her friends, Rachel sets her sights on a new goal… reinstating the arts and reviving the Glee Club at McKinley… but it comes with a catch, and a whole new set of challenges.

With opening night of Funny Girl rapidly approaching – and despite the producer’s concerns – Rachel is granted one night off of rehearsals so she can complete her NYADA “Midwinter Critique” for the much feared and revered Carmen Tibideaux. When her performance doesn’t go quite as planned, Rachel finds herself facing an important decision that pits her education against her career.
After the close proximity of Sam and Mercedes’ living arrangements leads to the seemingly inevitable hook-up, he tries once again to rekindle their romance. But Mercedes – despite her clear attraction to Sam – hesitates, worried about how dating (as one of her backup singers puts it) “a white, unemployed dude she met in her high school Glee Club” may adversely affect her public image and burgeoning recording career.
Meanwhile, Kurt gets a harsh lesson in the difference between life in high school and in the real world when he butts up against an all-too-familiar enemy, but he makes an important realization about himself in the process.
