The return of Glee is just 13 days away and the clues about the new season just keep trickling in. We know that John Stamos is joining the cast as Emma’s (Jayma Mays) dentist and new love interest and that pop star Charice and newcomer Chord Overstreet will show up as well. Plus we should see the returns of Idina Menzel and Emmy nominee Kristin Chenowith sometime during the season and Emmy nominee Mike O’ Malley (Kurt’s father) has been made a series regular along with Heather Morris (Brittany) & Naya Rivera (Santana). We will also see a Britney Spears tribute episode on Sept 28 and Broadway stud Cheyenne Jackson (Xanadu, Finian’s Rainbow) will guest as the new rival choir director. Along with all of that, the songs the cast will sing in the season premiere have been leaked. Don’t read any further if you don’t want to know…. But if you do, here they are!
