Glee Season 5 Cast Portraits: Fun New Pics of Rachel, Santana, Kurt, Tina, Ryder and More!

Glee won’t be back with fresh Season 5 episodes till Nov. 7 — an “inspirational” Lady Gaga-Katy Perry hour, to be more specific — but Fox just released a fresh batch of cast portraits to whet fans’ appetites.

The NYC and Lima, OH gangs are both represented — with everybody decked out in colorful duds and (mostly) big smiles. (Is that a new shade of tracksuit on Sue?)

So click through the gallery below for your first look at the pics — horizontal and vertical crops of each — then hit the comments and tell us who’s got the jazziest Season 5 image, who should’ve demanded a better angle, and which peripheral players you’re missing. (Us, we’d vote to add Beiste and Neck-Brace Girl to the mix!)

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Kurt’s is awful. He looks sick.
    Bad photoshop job on all of them.

  2. Adam says:

    Santana, Blaine and Jacob look the best.

  3. T.A says:

    Love Lea & Naya! Don’t even like looking at the Newbies, Lima is just not worth watching because of them.

    • The One says:

      Nobody cares about your obsessions. Let us watch our show. Marley, Jacob and the other guy are awesome. If you don’t like them, skip them! Just like I do with the NY parts. AND I don’t troll posts.

    • Leo says:

      Yeah. Stop mentioning your hatred for newbies in every post.
      Personally, I love and adore Marley and I hope she has a big arc this season.
      And I also agreed, bad photoshopping, they just lazily slapped a picture to a background.
      *sigh* Rachel, Marley, Santana and Unique look awesome.

    • FATIMA says:

      SO TRUE

  4. CC says:

    I don’t like the hair on some of the guys. Artie, Sam and Ryder, in particular. Also, it would be nice if you could spell “peripheral” right.

  5. discopunkk says:

    They all look bad. Well maybe not the one of Puck’s brother. Jake?

  6. Hallie says:

    Nov 7th is when glee comes back

  7. Estela says:

    Hello There. I found your weeblog the use of msn. This
    is an extremely smartly writrten article. I will be sure to bookmark itt
    and come back to read extra of your useful info. Thanks ffor tthe post.
    I’ll certainly comeback.

  8. Montavilla says:

    I think Tyra Banks must be rubbing off on me. (Okay, that’s an awkward sentence….) I’m noticing that there’s a noticeable difference in how well some of the Gleekers pose than others. Smize!
    Also, hasn’t Tina worn that dress before? A lot? It looks very familiar.
    What other shallow things can I talk about? I think Naya Rivera leaves everyone else in the dust as far as looking both gorgeous and in-character. The other one who stands out (in a good way) to me is Alex Newell.

  9. Tony says:

    Good to so smiles on all of their faces! Hope the downtime they took after making “The Quarterback” was a much needed time to heal.

  10. et al says:

    Marley’s is cute. I can imagine her with a little British accent saying “Please sir, can I have some dialogue?”

  11. TW says:

    Lea and Naya look gorgeous! Not a fan of Jenna (either the photo or her in general, actually). Look forward to next season when she’s gone. Sam, Kurt and Blaine look okay, but what is up with Ryder’s hair?

  12. igo says:

    I kinda wish they would release cory’s promo photo this season. We know he did the photoshoot for season 5. It would be great for FOX to release his photo, consider this as the last gift from glee for fans, cory’s fans especially

  13. Eric says:

    I think they all look really good. Thank goodness Lea moved those awful bangs to the side. Love Kurt’s whole look!

  14. Alia says:

    What the heck is going on with Ryder’s hair? Yeesh, that photo editing is rough.

  15. Rook says:

    What happened to Joe?

  16. Paul says:

    The link I clicked on said Santana strikes a “saucy” pose. I think you mean, “sassy.”

  17. Bender says:

    I’m probably the only one that wants Rachel and Santana to become a couple

  18. karenb says:

    Sam and Tina look the best. Not down with the vests or man scarves.

  19. Lori says:

    Lea looks amazing!

  20. Neal says:

    Where’s Dot-Marie Jones…….and Becky?

  21. Cristina says:

    Glee original and new cast look awesome and amazing!! #RIPCoryMonteith! God bless and peace to all original cast and new cast and crew!! Stay strong and keep on living!! :) !

  22. Trouty Mouth says:

    Maybe it’s just the lesbian in me showing, but I honestly don’t see the appeal with Blaine. The too-tight polo shirts he wears, combined with the excessive hair gel, makes him look like an overstuffed sausage.

    Lea, Naya and Jenna look gorgeous though.

  23. Jake says:

    These are just the same pictures twice, one of which is slightly more of a close-up.

  25. Ben says:

    Wow. Uglee.

  26. Carrie says:

    I like Santana, Rachel, and Kurt’s pix. I find the noobs are bland and boring – except for Becca – and their stories are nothing but rehashes of those already told, and better, by the original characters. NY is way too underdeveloped. It had a great chance to do something original and it flopped. Remember when this show won award after award? Now it just bleeds viewers.
