Making good use of Glee‘s iconic hand-L, the art takes fans back to the McKinley High School auditorium for one last look into the spotlight that so many gleeks have fought to stand in over the years.

The auditorium theme is also appropriate, as Glee‘s final season — premiering Friday, Jan. 9, at 8/7c — will largely take place where it all began: Lima, Ohio.

Following her failed attempt at a TV career, Rachel — with Kurt in tow — will return to McKinley to help revive New Directions; Mr. Schue is reportedly becoming the new coach of Vocal Adrenaline; and Blaine will head back to his own alma mater to help out the Warblers.
