Whoopi Goldberg Returns to GLEE
August 17, 2012 by Marisa Roffman
After playing a pivotal role in getting Rachel into New York Academy of Dramatic Arts — and surprisingly rejecting Kurt from the school — it seems NYADA dean Carmen Tibideaux isn’t quite done on GLEE: a rep for the show confirms that Whoopi Goldberg (Carmen) will recur on the Fox series this season. The Hollywood Reporter was first to break the news.
In addition, season 1 THE GLEE PROJECT contestants Samuel Larsen (who plays Joe) and Alex Newell (who plays Wade/Unique) will officially continue on with the series in a recurring capacity. (It was already announced that Damian McGinty won’t be back with the show.)
Have any theories about why Carmen might be sticking around on GLEE? Are you hoping Kurt gets to prove her wrong? Or that perhaps some of the New Directions kids might make an impression and be heading to NYADA when it’s their turn to graduate?
GLEE’s fourth season premieres on its new night and time on Thursday, September 12th at 9 PM on Fox.
