‘Glee’ Song Teases & Filming Begins in September
Filming for the sixth and final season of the Fox musical dramedy “Glee” is set to start next month, according to Chord Overstreet.
The 25-year-old Nashville-born singer-actor, who plays Sam Evans in the Golden Globe-winning show, told E! News that he is “back to work in September” for the series’ last 13 episodes.
“I assume I will be in all of the episodes,” he said Monday, Aug. 11, at the premiere of “The Expendables 3,” where he was supporting his roommate, Glen Powell, who plays a highly trained combat veteran and hacker named Thorn in the Sylvester Stallone-led action film.
Overstreet continued, “I know the writers are three to four episodes in right now and from what I’ve heard it’s really fun stuff.”
And though he does not know yet what the exact storylines will be, the blonde, hunky actor hinted, “I know I am back in Ohio at the school.”
As previously teased by series co-creator Ryan Murphy at Critics Choice Television Awards in June, most characters are more likely to come back to McKinley High next season.
“We’re working on the last season now, and it really feels like it’s getting back to its roots, which I love,” he told TVLine at the awards show. “I’m sort of reinvigorated about it. It’s getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools… I think people will like it.”
Co-executive producer Brad Falchuk also previously spilled that “there will be a lot going on in Lima” next season.
Meanwhile, Adam and Alex Anders, music producers for “Glee,” are already busy working on the song list for next season, according to Broadway World. In fact, the brothers have been teasing fans via social media about the song selection for the upcoming season since earlier this month.
On Aug. 6, Adam tweeted, “Starting another new @glee song today! All I will say is it’s one of my favorite songs of all time. And it was written by vikings! #glee.”
After a week, on Aug. 13 to be exact, Adam took to Twitter again and posted: “Off to the studio for another #glee session. Two songs today! Lots to do…. Starting to pick up steam!”
His brother, Alex, was equally as vague, tweeting, “Love the song we’re working on right now. So much fun! #GleeSeason6.”
Adam then took to Instagram and gave a clue: “You can spell the name of the artist we are covering today for #glee with the letters in this picture. Good luck.”
“Glee” Season 6 is expected to premiere in 2015 as part of the 2014-15 television season.
