NEW GLEE DEETS! The long drought is nearly over. Glee returns to our TVs on April 10–only two weeks away and I have some NEW photos and promos to share with you!

The spring premiere, titled “Big Brother”, features Matt Bomer as Cooper Anderson (get it?), Blaine Anderson’s (Darren Criss) big brother. Here he is teaching Glee an “acting master class”. Oh! So there you go. Blaine’s big brother is an actor!

There are also photos of the Glee kids at the amusement park celebrating senior skip day. Rachel (Lea Michele) and Finn (Cory Monteith) looking super-pensive as Artie (Kevin McHale) performs. There are no photos of Quinn (Dianna Agron).  She was in a terrible car accident at the end of the winter finale and we learn her fate in “Big Brother”.   She doesn’t die but…well you can check out my Big Brother Spoiler post for more.

In the new 30 second promo, there are scenes from “Big Brother” AND “Saturday Night Gleever” (watch the kids strut their inner John Travoltas in the April 17 episode!)  The remaining 7 weeks of the season (including a two parter on May 15) will deal with the seniors graduating and preparing for life after Glee, and the Nationals competition.

Bits I could glean from the promo:  Sue (Jane Lynch) hints that the father of her baby is a celebrity.  She also appears to be coaching the “sloppy babies” (New Directions!) in some moves for Nationals (you’ll remember she offered her services to Will at the end of the last episode).  Finn wants to move to California?

There are roller coasters, Kurt (Chris Colfer) looking real surprised (but happy to see big brother!) and Blaine singing “Somebody that I Used to Know” by Goyte (A performance from “Big Brother”).  Also the kids are dressed in white with Sue in the lead busting some iconic disco moves for the Saturday Night Fever tribute.

Puck (Mark Salling) laments that he’s “waited 5 years for this” which might have something to do with the return of his long lost father.

ETA: As some of you have noticed, Blaine doesn’t look very happy watching big brother charm the gleeksters.

ETA:  In this new interview with Matt Bomer, Cooper is described as a full-of-himself D-bag. Also, Kurt thinks he’s  “the handsomest man in North America”.  No wonder Blaine looks so unhappy in the promo!

Watch the promo and speculate.  I’m also posting a shorter 20 second promo that sets a more somber tone to tease the aftermath of the Quinn car accident–the cliff hanger that ended the winter finale.

I can’t stop thinking about Quinn…
