    Does this mean that Samuel Larson will become a regular next season? Also I heard that Dianna and Amber will be mentoring to.

    • Larry says:

      The only mentor confirmed besides these four is Iqbal Theba who filmed his episode on March 9th. Ryan Murphy did say that there will be more of the big actors as mentors this year so anyone is possible from the cast. But I don’t think there has been any confirmation yet on Dianna or Amber.

    • WaitWhat says:

      And Iqbal Theba. A picture was leaked on the internet of him with some of the contestants (exactly 6, in fact…hmm…)

  2. Casey says:

    Bring Eileen Davidson back to DAYS!!!

  3. amelyrose says:

    Does that mean that Jane By Design is not getting a second season?

  4. Sue says:

    No big loss for Days. IMO.

    • Bobbi says:

      I agree! But, read yesterday that Molly Burnett is leaving and I will miss her. Of course, they haven’t been writing for her for a while.

      • smidnite says:

        I hope this doesn’t mean that Gabi’s going to get what she wants. I’d rather see Gabi and Rafe go.

  5. Tj says:

    Someone sign Currie Graham to be more than just a guest star please. Love him!

  6. guest says:

    Lea, Naya, Cory…if Heather Morris mentors than all the best cast members will have mentored this season. It’s good the bigger names are signing on. It was kind of pathetic that the contestants last season had to feign interest in meeting people like Coach Bieste and Harry Shum Jr.

    • JAO says:

      I understand where you’re coming from; however, Harry Shum Jr is quite something. Ask anyone who’s seen the League of Extraordinary Dance Series.

  7. Michelle says:

    Really looking forward to Cedar Cove, and hope it gets picked up. I love the series of books it is based on!

  8. Dellie Q. says:

    I only care for the episode when Damian McGinty mentors on The Glee Project.

  9. By the way the pictures on The Hollywood Reporter spoil some of the episodes of Glee Project season 2. You can clearly see who is still around for Rivera’s episode

  10. Jared says:

    Jane by Design has never been the “hit” ABC FAMILY wished it was..although not a bad show..and Andie MacDowell’s character could easily fade out if picked up for an additional season.
