‘Glee’ After Finn: What’s Next For The Show?

More Demi? A new mean girl? MTV News breaks down what Gleeks will see when the Fox show returns on November 7.

“Glee” fans will have the next few weeks off to recover from the very emotional Cory Monteith tribute episode that aired Thursday. But when the Fox series returns on November 7, it will be back in all its kooky glory, putting silly antics, petty disagreements and over-the-top performances back at the center of the story.

A new trailer teases the next episode, which returns after a hiatus (thanks baseball playoffs), and MTV News is breaking down what to expect.

An APOPcalypse Is A Comin’!
The aPOPcalypse hasn’t been averted, just yet. The upcoming episode of “Glee” is titled “A Katy or a Gaga.” And by the looks of it, the gleeks are taking sides in the epic battle, meaning fans can expect extravagant takes on numbers from each of those pop princesses. It also means there will be costumes inspired by Gaga (yes, that’s Artie as Gaga in the “Applause” video) and Katy.

So Are The Apocalypsticks?
Adam Lambert will make his first appearance during the episode, during which he’s slated to belt out Gaga’s “Marry The Night,” wear a top hat and swing from a chandelier. Sounds about right.

Santana wants to name a band the Apocalypsticks. Kurt is definitely against the idea. Who will win? Well, only time will tell!

As it turns out, Lambert is auditioning to be in a band with Kurt (Chris Colfer), Rachel (Lea Michele) and Santana (Naya Rivera) and Dani!

Santana wants to name them the Apocalypsticks, but Kurt is definitely against the idea. Who will win? Well, only time will tell!

Hip, Hip, Hooray!
The head Glambert is hardly the only new face joining the show. Fans are likely to learn more about one of the newest Cheerios, Erinn Westbrook (as Bree) , who joined the cast this season. “I always admired the cast of ‘Glee’ just because they were all so multi-talented,” Westbrook told MTV News about getting the chance to chill out at McKinley High as its latest mean girl. Move over, Santana!

Gone, But Not Forgotten
The show will continue to honor Monteith’s character, Finn, even after saying goodbye to him this week. Show creator, Ryan Murphy, shared with E! that while he’s looking to the future, including a November 14 episode entitled “The End of Twerk,” Finn will hardly become a distant memory.

“I just made a decision that we keep mentioning Finn,” Murphy said. “We don’t just say this is done and we’re never going to go back to it, so that resonates throughout the year.” He added that the next step is to have “some fun and go back to some optimistic stories.”
