The critically acclaimed series stars Dianna Agron, Chris Colfer, Jessalyn Gilsig, Jane Lynch, Jayma Mays, Kevin McHale, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, Matthew Morrison, Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Jenna Ushkowitz. Guest stars this season include Victor Garber, Josh Groban, Kristin Chenoweth and Eve.
During its preview and throughout the summer, more than 25 million people sampled the first episode of GLEE.
