New 'Glee' promo debuts

I am officially “Glee”-king out.

The promo for the new season of “Glee” has only increased my yearning for the show to return.

I was wondering how the dynamics may have changed at McKinley High since the “Glee” kids won regionals, and I am happy to see that slushies are still being flung.

Click here to watch the promo

I mourned the show going into hiatus - it's been gone since December - so this promo whetted my appetite for its return. The songs, the drama, the budding romances! Not to mention the return of  Coach Sue Sylvester.

And might I dare to hope for a surprise cameo by Madonna herself in the Madonna-themed episode? Come on, April!

    I have missed this show. I hope all of its awards don't make the stars into primadonnas and kill it from the inside out. Like Ugly Betty.
    Good luck on a new season!!!

    The Madonna episode is going to be blockbuster. I heard they really spent time making this eppy truly great. It is called "The Power of Madonna" and the entire cast said it is by far the best episode they have done. Leah said they do a killer "Ray of Light" that will knock everyones socks off.

    Shocking that Madonna gave her entire catalogue to the show yet she doesn't allow Idol to have any of her songs.

    Can't wait for the return myself! I would love to see Madge make an appearance......but what about Mariah?? OOOO that would be good, she could get a slushie thrown at her. Sorry – just my little dream.

    In 'Glee' it's great to see an upbeat show about the arts (music) instead of the insipid sitcoms, even worse narcissistic "reality" shows, the shock and crime shows, shows glorifying cutthroat competition and domination in sports (more narcissism) an all their ilk. It's nice to see a teen-oriented show that's not ALL about prurient interest. Sure, a lot of it is unrealistic - but that's showbiz, right? The show has "adult" action and themes I'm not comfortable with for my pre-teens, so that I wish it aired a bit later at night. With enough talent out there among even younger kids, I could easily imagine a 'Glee – Jr. High' version - with different personal/social issues confronting the kids - that could have been at least as entertaining. But for myself I like the current show better as it is.

    We LOVE Glee! Cannot wait for the new season! Our favorite part is that all the loose ends were tied up at the end of the season, instead of leaving cliff hangers (so sick of that). Yipeee! Just cannot wait!

    It is so refreshing to see some of the story themes, all wrapped in music to touch the heart. I enjoy the show and do hope Fox ends up putting it "on demand" for cable viewers.

    You can be sure I'll be purchasing the series when it is released on dvd. Nice to end a day with singing and a "good message'

    A bit nit-picky, but the GLEE kids didn't win regionals... they won sectionals.

    It is my favorite show. I can't hardly wait for the nwe season. My nieces just love all the drama, comedy and speciaaly the musical numbers. We may not speak English but for sure it is a lot of easier when you can learn with this show. Inspirational in many ways.! Love it, love it.

    How about playing last season's episodes for those who didn't know it was on until late in the season? The very best show for MANY years with superb casting and writing.

    Can we think of a cheer so the network will REALLY hear us?

    I also love this show and can't wait for it to return. My 80 year old dad LOVES Glee also! I have to laugh at times at how worked up he gets. Jane Lynch is his favorite! I agree with some of the comments about stretching reality but then most shows do in some way or ther other. I hope it doesn't burn out too soon otherwise my dad will go back to watching black & white westerns!

    This show is so different, and it seems like a silly show for someone to watch, but the first time I saw it, I couldn't tear my eyes away and I couldn't wait for the commercial to be over. Its definately not something I watch so I came upon the conclusion that it contains subliminal messages lol I get sucked in against my will!

    What's going on CNN Moderators? I'm just trying to be honest in what Glee does for me in combat, why didn't you post my last? I don't recall breaking your comment policy...

    Try to priase the show in my own way and I get blocked by an intern with a grudge against Taliban killers. F my life.

    I love Glee because:

    1. The musical numbers are separated out. No musicalish singing for no apparent reason.
    2. It is not s "soap Opera"

    Glee will be good until someone in its production team decides:

    1. It should become a "musical" with singing for no apparent reason.
    2. It should become a "Soap Opera".

    I LOVE, LOVE, triple LOVE this show! Not in a long time have I so enjoyed a television show! I think I have over played my Glee Season 1 dvd's to keep my fix going!!!! I do hope to see more of Kristen Chenoweth on the show. I hope that the rumors are true and we also get to see Idina Menzel on the show. She would be THE perfect person to be Rachel's mom!!!

    April can't get here soon enough for me!!!! Yay Glee!!!

    Hopefully in the new season they'll treat their lead characters to some brains.
    Having the young male lead believing that a girl could get pregnant in a hot tub, and the teacher not figuring out his wife isn't expecting almost put me off the show.
    Then we have a stereotype gay, a teacher who seems to be a pedophile, the female lead who is just plain nuts...it often goes beyond satire into cheap laughs and lazy writing.

    This is definitely the best show in a long time. It's just tons of fun, but it is true that it could burn out the way Ally McBeal did. As long as they keep us caring for these characters that won't happen though.

    Ryan Murphy (creator) is awesome for coming up with such an original show just like he did when he created nip/tuck. But after a few seasons, nip/tuck got super stale to where it's a walking corpse nearing its end nowadays. I hope this doesn't happen to Glee. The original creative people need to stay involved with it instead of moving on to other things and then leaving the actors with bad story lines.

    That was a horrible tease! I saw that commerical in the never ending saga that is American Idol in which Ryan Seacrest repeats the situation at hand more then a daytime soap. But the promo said it was coming soon, April is NOT soon. I thought they moved up the premiere for the second half of the seaon up to mid march or something. Noooo April. Ugh! I guess I will have to survive the bitter anguish of not being able to enjoy one of the most interesting and captivating shows I have witness in a very long time.

    Glee is so over the top with archness sometimes I just can't take it. Then it goes all saccharine with joy or sadness. In a way I'm not sure if the lack of subtlety is a strength or a weakness, because it is a dramedy, so people expect to be bounced around. I can see the humor, and the pathos, but I wish they'd tone it down to something more human scale. I think this show is going to burn out, a la Ally McBeal.

    Glee is probably the best new show of this season.

    This show gives me hope that reality TV will not completely eradicate smart scripted comedies or dramas.

    Thank God for Glee.
