It's finally here! After a long — and let's face it: Extremely emotionally draining — summer, Glee is coming back for Season 5. Tonight, Thursday, September 26, 2013, the beloved musical comedy will make it's return on FOX. Originally, the show was supposed to premiere last Thursday. Then, Cory Monteith (Finn) passed away suddenly on July 13, and FOX made the call to push the Season 5 premiere back a week to Thursday, September 26.
Glee Season 5, Episode 1: “Love, Love, Love” will air on September 26, 2013, atthe show’s regular time of 9 p.m. Get a preview of what’s to come in the special Beatles tribute by reading our spoiler roundup, then get a first listen to all of the songs that will be in the episode.
The next week, Glee is back for a second Beatles ep, Season 5, Episode 2: “Tina in the Sky With Diamonds,” on October 3. The following Thursday, you’re going to need a tissue box (or two or seven) with you at all times; October 10 will be Season 5, Episode 3: “The Quarterback,” also known as the Cory Monteith tribute episode.
Next, the show will go on hiatus until November 7, making the total hiatus four weeks long.
