Lengies, who will appear in the show’s Sept. 13 opener, joined the Fox hit last season and quickly established herself as one of McKinley’s more eccentric and outspoken (not to mention slightly tone deaf) pupils. With a little help from her piano magnate father, she cast herself as the lead singer of the New Directions spin-off choir The Troubletones (she was quickly downgraded to mere backup singer).

At the Television Critics Association’s summer press tour Monday, Fox president Kevin Reilly said Glee‘s new season will split its focus between McKinley and NYADA, where Lea Michele’s Rachel is enrolled as a freshman. He also acknowledged that several returning vets will only be around part time. “We have a core [group consisting] of some of the returning characters and some of the new ones that we’ll be servicing every week, and then limited deals with some of the other actors, who will be joining here and there through the season,” he explained. “I think it will make for a fun surprise [when they turn up].”
