Entering its sophomore season, Glee is a biting musical comedy that has quickly become a pop-culture phenomenon. The highest-rated new scripted series of the season boasts critical acclaim, a loyal fan base of “Gleeks,” two certified Gold albums, more than 10 million song downloads and an incredible 19 Emmy nominations — earning it the distinction of being the most-nominated series of the year. Glee follows a group of eager and ambitious students as they strive to outshine their singing competition while navigating the cruel halls of McKinley High. Although New Directions lost at Regionals, they now have their sights set on making it to Nationals and defeating their arch rivals, Vocal Adrenaline. In addition to the regular cast, Glee has featured guest appearances by a wide range of talented performers, including Kristen Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, Jonathan Groff, Molly Shannon, Neil Patrick Harris and Olivia Newton-John. The second season of Glee will include guest appearances by heartthrob John Stamos, international pop star Charice and newcomer Chord Overstreet.
