In regards to cast members returning to “Glee” season 4 – showrunner Ryan Murphy stated in May 2012 to Vulture.com, “We had a meeting, and you know we’ve become like a family, and I said to them, ‘Anybody who wants to stay on the show will stay on the show. They’re all coming back, anyone who is a regular is coming back. Everyone said yes. It doesn’t mean everyone will be doing 22 episodes, but everyone wants to stay in our family and our world”.

Note: Various directors work different episodes during the season. In television shows composed of individual episodes, the television director’s role differs from that of a film director in that he or she may work only on some television episodes as opposed to the director of an entire film production. In episodic television productions, the major creative control resides with a producer of the show. The television producer with creative control is called the showrunner (in this case Ryan Murphy).

When a High School Spanish teacher, Will Schuester, becomes the director of the school’s failing Glee club, New Directions, he hopes to be able to rejuvenate it. The club competes in the choir competition circuit. It’s been called “a High School Musical for adults”, the series follows the club and its mixture of oddball members as they try and restore it to its former glory. It is a musical comedy in which the eager and ambitious students not only compete to win the Nationals, but also have to deal with the tough and cruel realities of their school, McKinley High. At the same time, Will is trying to rejuvenate his failing love life whilst preventing the school’s cheer leading coach Sue Sylvester from sabotaging the choir.
