Fox delays GLEE Season 5 premiere, casts two new characters

Production has been pushed back on Glee, Fox just announced.

In light of actor Cory Monteith‘s passing, the cast and crew are taking a break before coming back in early August to start work on the new season of the show.

Season five is now expected to premiere on Thursday, September 26th @ 9PM ET/PT on Fox.

The new season is also casting two new characters — a “cute and quirky” twentysomething named Jenny and a new African-American student at McKinley High School.
