'Glee' is searching for 5 new McKinley High students for Season 6Add to Favorites | Glee
Per TVLine, the new recurring characters will all be sophomores at McKinley High (and presumably New Directions members as well).
The new students include Roderick, a shy, chubby "goober" and "the show's new underdog" with an Otis Redding-like voice; Spencer, a hotshot football player with an amazing voice who also happens to be gay, but "post-Glee gay -- no one messes with him about his sexuality because he will kick their a**es if they do"; Jane, an "unconventionally pretty" ambitious student with no sense of humor who wants to be a Warbler but settles for the New Directions instead; and Mason and Madison, weirdo, ultra-positive male and female twin Cheerios.
Does "Glee" actually need new high schoolers? What about all those new characters who didn't really catch on over the past two seasons? Does a shortened, 13-episode run even have room to introduce new people in addition to wrapping up the storylines of the original characters we know and love?
