Tuesday, September 21, marks the return of Glee for it’s much anticipated second season. For Gleeks everywhere, this is a day to celebrate as out old favorites take center stage again, (Finchel fans, prepares yourselves) and new characters come in to (possibly?) steal the spotlight.
I have never been more excited for a season premier in my entire life, and I’m a pretty excitable person to say the least.
Charice Pempengco, also known as the most talented little Filipina sweetie I’ve ever seen, will be joining the cast this season as Sunshine, a foreign-exchange student, bringing some fierce competition to the shows seasoned Rachel Berry, played by Lea Michele.
This in and of itself is huge. Despite the negativity surrounding Glee’s previous (and it would seem like continued) tendencies to feature many celebrity guests, I’m really getting a good vibe from this one (and Britney of course) considering Charice is one of the most talented up-and-coming artists of this generation. If Glee plays it’s cards right, they could amass such huge levels of fame for its musical attributions that last season will just seem like a joke. Trust me people, this is a big deal.
New faces this season include John Stamos, Susan Boyle, and Javier Bardem, among others.
