Grab your schoolgirl outfits and whip out the boa constrictors — “Glee” is going Britney Spears. On Sunday (July 25), the cast of the show and creator Ryan Murphy were at San Diego Comic-Con, where they revealed a few details about their plans to pay tribute to the pop princess’ catalog.
“All I can say about that is that we’re doing six Britney songs, and then Brittany (Heather Morris) is doing a Britney song,” Murphy said about the episode, which will air September 28 (Tuesday). “We’re paying tribute to her in a sort of fun and unexpected way.” Murphy also described the episode as “hallucinogenic.”
The Washington Post reported that the cast is expected to receive the script for the episode, which will be called “Britney/Brittany,” on Monday (July 26).
Back in May, “Glee” star Mathew Morrison told Us Weekly that an episode dedicated to Spears’ music was just a rumor planted by her manager . “I hope our show doesn’t go along that route,” he said at the time. According to EW.com, Morrison’s character will echo those sentiments. “The entire episode is Schuester saying, ’I don’t want to do Britney! I don’t want to do Britney!’ ” said Murphy.
TVGuide.com reports that Glee is set to make its return on September 21 (Tuesday), with the Spears tribute serving as the season’s second episode.
Last week, Spears let her “Glee” fandom slip in a tweet to fans. “Watching @GleeOnFox. What are you guys up to tonight?” she said.
