Glee: 2009 Fall TV Preview

This week Fox will premiere the first (new) episode of the much anticipated premiere season of Glee. Having spent the summer promoting the series, I’m sure there are plenty of “Gleeks” out there who are beyond excited to see what’s ahead for the rag-tag team of high school singers.

For interested viewers who missed the first episode, we have it posted below. Also below is Fox’s series synopsis for Glee and some photos from some of the upcoming episodes, including a few that feature guest stars Victor Garber and Josh Groban.

“The series follows an optimistic teacher, WILL SCHUESTER (Matthew Morrison), who – against all odds and a malicious cheerleading coach – attempts to save McKinley High’s Glee Club from obscurity, while helping a group of aspiring underdogs realize their true star potential. It’s a tall order when the brightest stars of the group include KURT (Chris Colfer), a soprano who hits a high note in fashion; MERCEDES (Amber Riley), a larger-than-life diva with a voice to match; ARTIE (Kevin McHale), a geeky guitarist who rocks and rolls; and TINA (Jenna Ushkowitz), a punk rocker who hides behind her stutter and blue hair extensions.Will’s only hope lies with two true talents: RACHEL BERRY (Lea Michele), a self-proclaimed star who is convinced that MySpace and show choir and are her tickets to fame; and FINN HUDSON (Cory Monteith), the popular high school quarterback with movie star looks who must protect his reputation from his holier-than-thou girlfriend and “Cheerios” head cheerleader, QUINN (Dianna Agron), and his arrogant football teammate, PUCK (Mark Salling).Will is determined to do whatever it takes to make Glee great again, but his only ally is fellow teacher and germaphobe EMMA PILLSBURY (Jayma Mays). Everyone else around him thinks he’s nuts – from his tough-as-nails wife TERRI SCHUESTER (Jessalyn Gilsig) to McKinley’s scheming cheerleading coach SUE SYLVESTER (Jane Lynch) – but he’s out to prove them wrong.Guest stars set to appear on the series’ freshman season include Kristin Chenoweth, Victor Garber, Eve and Josh Groban. Following the preview event this spring, GLEE’s version of “Don’t Stop Believin’” shot to No. 1 on the iTunes charts.

Glee premieres Wednesday, September 9, 2009 at 9:00 p.m. on Fox.
