The wait for fresh episodes of Glee is almost over — seriously! The Fox musicomedy returns from its month-long, baseball-fieled hiatus on Nov. 8 with an episode that welcomes Mike (Harry Shum Jr.) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) back to the fold, and finds a few of the rookies experiencing something of a New Directions rite of passage.
“[We have our] first big group dance number,” declares Melissa Benoist (Marley) of the outing, which revolves around the gang auditioning for McKinley’s production of Grease. Adds fellow newbie Jacob Artist, whose alter ego Jake is vying for the role of Danny: “This is the first time I’ve danced [on the show] at all.”
Press PLAY below for a first look at scenes from the episode, titled “The Role You Were Born to Play,” as well as “intimate” behind the scenes footage of Heather Morris and Vanessa Lengies, ahem, getting reacquainted with Shum.
