The first teaser promo for Glee‘s upcoming fifth season puts an emphasis on happier times.
What’s there: upbeat music, footage from last season, lots of smiles. What’s not: scenes including star Cory Monteith, who died from a toxic mix of drugs and alcohol in July, or any mention of the tribute episode the show is planning in his honor.
Creator Ryan Murphy recently told TVLine that the musical series will return with two Beatles-themed episodes, followed by one that honors Monteith and his character, Finn.
Glee returns to Fox on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c.
