A Fox insider is confirming what TVLine first reported last week: The show’s April 26 episode — inspired by Gaga’s anthem of self-acceptance “Born This Way” — has been expanded to 90 minutes.
The super-sized episode, which concludes with the New Directions performing the No. 1 smash, finds Mr. Schuester teaching the kids to embrace what it is that makes them unique.
For example, Lauren (Ashley Fink) battles Quinn (Dianna Agron) for prom queen, in so doing challenging the traditional notion of what a pageant princess looks like. Rachel (Lea Michele), meanwhile, considers getting a nose job.
As a result of Glee‘s expanded running time, Raising Hope will be pushed to 9:30 and Traffic Light will sit the night out.
Glee returns with the first of six all-new episodes on April 19.
