When Finn put Rachel on the train to New York at the end of last season of Glee, we were both thrilled that she was going to live her dream and sad that it had to be at the cost of her relationship. For us at home, the New York move means Glee will be a whole new show in season four, but we wondered if this will feel like deja vu for actress Lea Michele, a New York native and Broadway star before she made the switch to TV.

DO SOMETHING TV Show
Always known for pushing boundaries with its topical storylines, Glee’s most recent season has focused on domestic violence, bias against same sex relationships, teen pregnancy, bringing awareness and social consciousness to their millions of young viewers.
The kids from Riverdale are breaking all types of boundaries this year. Archie introduced its first gay character (and had its first gay wedding) recently and now the comic is blurring the line between television and comic books. “Archie Meets Glee,” a new series in the long running comic, will introduce the kids of Riverdale to the kids from William McKinley High School.
The Associated Press reports that Finn Hudson, Kurt Hummel and Rachel Berry will meet Archie, Jughead, Betty, and Veronica later this year or early in 2013. The “Archie Meets Glee” storyline will be written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, who writes for the Fox show.
Jon Goldwater, the co-chief executive officer, said that the “Archie Meets Glee” idea spawned from his friendship with Roberto, who is a huge Archie fan.
Goldwater said: “I’ve become friendly with Roberto — he’s just a genius writer… He and I were shooting the breeze…. It turns out he’s been a fan of Archie for years. His most recent Halloween costume? He was dressed as Archie!”
Aguirre-Sacasa said: “I’ve been wanting to write something for Archie Comics forever and my favorite Archie stories have always been those weird crossovers like ‘Archie meets the Punisher’ and ‘Archie meets KISS… I thought, ‘Archie meets Glee’ would be a great crossover since they’re both set in high schools, they’re both optimistic, they both involve singing.”
The storyline for the new Archie Comics isn’t known yet but Goldwater said that “Archie Meets Glee” will be a four-issue story arc.
Spending a quiet evening together, Lea Michele and Cory Monteith were spotted grabbing dinner at Pace in Los Angeles, CA on Monday night (July 9).
The darling duo shared smiled as they exited the hidden-away restaurant and the brunette beauty looked to be feeling much better since her early afternoon tweet that read, “In bed recovering from having my upper wisdom teeth taken out! Going to rest and watch LOTS of Game of Thrones!”
Enjoy 43 HQ pictures of Lea and Cory at the gallery!

Could Rachel meet a familiar face on the East Coast when Glee’s fourth season returns in the fall? What will happen to Brittany and Santana’s relationship now that the poor class president has to stay behind and repeat her senior year at McKinley?
The Glee Season 3 finale confirmed that Rachel (Lea Michele) is headed east with Finn (Cory Monteith) enlisting in the Army and going his own way, while Brittany (Heather Morris) with her 0.0 GPA is stuck at McKinley to repeat her senior year as her girlfriend Santana (Naya Rivera) was given the support and cash to follow her dreams of stardom.
With so many of members of New Directions graduating — goodbye to Rachel, Finn, Kurt (Chris Colfer), Puck (Mark Salling), Mercedes (Amber Riley), Quinn (Dianna Agron), Mike (Harry Shum Jr.) and Santana — who will step up to lead the group in search of a Nationals victory?
The Hollywood Reporter turned to stars Michele, Rivera and Kevin McHale (Artie) to answer some of the many burning questions facing the series as it prepares for its fourth season with stories set in New York and Ohio.
How many episodes will everyone be doing?
All 15 cast members are confirmed to return in some capacity, while it’s still unclear just how many episodes the swelling ensemble cast will appear in. Michele, who notes she’s more excited about Glee’s fourth season than any previous edition of the series, confirms her role as a series regular and that she’ll be doing every episode next season. “I’ve spoken with Ryan and I know my character’s entire arc for the whole season, and it’s incredibly exciting,” she enthuses. Rivera notes she’ll be “a big part” of Season 4, and McHale says Artie will be around “quite a bit.”
Rachel and Finn parted ways literally and figuratively at the end of Season 3. Is there hope for the couple?
“Anything is possible. I think it’s exciting to see them apart. But you never know with Glee what’s going to happen,” Michele teases. “The stuff happening next year is really exciting; when I sit down and talk with [EP Ryan Murphy] about story lines for next year, they’re so exciting and so different.”
It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s a Gleeked-out Man of Steel!

It’s official: The entire Glee cast is poised to return for Season 4, but the number of episodes they’ll each appear in remains to be seen.
Co-creator Ryan Murphy left the door open for the swelling cast to return, with all 15 regulars — including Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer — accepting the gig, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
In addition, recurring player Chord Overstreet (Sam) is in talks to rejoin the show as a series regular. Whether The Glee Project Season 1 winners Damian McGinty (Rory) and Samuel Larsen (Joe) return, however, is not yet clear.
The Glee writers returned to work this week and are breaking stories for the upcoming fourth season that will feature a show-within-a-show concept, splitting time between McKinley High in Ohio and following Michele’s Rachel Berry in New York as she pursues her Broadway dreams.
While the status of many of the show’s graduating seniors — Amber Riley (Mercedes), Mark Salling (Puck), Harry Shum Jr. (Mike), Naya Rivera (Santana) and Dianna Agron (Quinn) — was left up in the air following the Season 3 finale, all are confirmed to return to the Fox juggernaut. However, how many episodes each will film still remains unclear.
