Reports got it half right.

Adam Lambert is headed to a Fox show. But it isn’t American Idol. It’s… Glee!

Keeping the singer’s role a secret, creator Ryan Murphy Tweeted last night: “I am thrilled to announce that the super talented Adam Lambert is joining the cast of Glee this fall.”

Lambert himself added that he’s “so excited” to begin work on Glee Season 5.


The series will look very different when it premieres on September 19.

Heather Morris, Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Harry Shum, Jr. are out as series regulars. Melissa Benoist, Jacob Artist, Becca Tobin, Blake Jenner and Alex Newell are in.

Jayma Mays has signed on for a CBS sitcom and it remains unclear how often Glee will shift from William McKinley to New York City.

Still, this is exciting news… isn’t it? Are you looking forward to Adam Lambert on Glee?
