In related news, Dianna Agron - who scarcely appeared as Quinn on Glee Season 4 - is not slated to make any appearances at all in 2013-2014.

It is possible that any or all of the aforementioned quartet may pop up for at least one or two episodes, but it's too early to know for sure at the moment.

Earlier this week, Fox announced its fall premiere calendar.

Over the years, Glee has tackled controversial issues relevant to teens, from suicide to bullying to abuse to texting while driving.

But the show actually aired an episode last night based around a school shooting, the fallout from which has left viewers either loving the bold step or reacting in horror that a musical comedy would dare go there.

The installment featured various characters stuck in various parts of the school when a gunshot rang out.

Glee has cast a mother for Artie.

And she's a serious bad ass.

Katey Sagal - who cracked us up for years on Married with Children but now wears a far more dramatic face on Sons of Anarchy - will guest star on Season 4 of the Fox musical as the parent of Kevin McHale's wheelchair-bound choir member.

This is Monteith's second time in rehab.

He admitted in a 2011 interview that he had a substance abuse problem as a teenager and first sought treatment when he was 19. We wish him well in his recovery.

As noted in our Les Miserables review, we weren't huge fans of this big screen adaption.

But Anne Hathaway deserves all the Oscar buzz circulating around Hollywood, thanks to her rendition of the classic track "I Dreamed a Dream."

Was it the best version we've heard of this single over the last few years, though?

Susan Boyle rose to fame by covering the song on Britain's Got Talent, while Lea Michele and Idina Menzel teamed up for a rendition on Glee.

Listen to all three now and vote on your favorite:
