He gives a nod to some rumors out there including a big Sue Sylvester blowout, but denies Katie Couric's number in the February 6 episode.
"Glee" is taking a holiday break and will only return in February with the highly-anticipated Super Bowl episode. While preview is not immediately available, co-creator Ryan Murphy is willing to share a bit of what fans can expect upon the return in an interview with Rolling Stone.
First of all, Murphy would like to explain why "Glee" takes a long break while most of other shows return in January. "I always think it's good when the show goes off air and make people miss it a little bit," he said, adding that there will be two episodes airing in one week, one which follows the Super Bowl episode on Sunday, and another on the regular Tuesday slot.
Regarding what to expect overall, Murphy said, "I'm excited about our spring season because we're going back to the earlier Glee episodes. We really love all of our characters and the soap opera aspects of the show and now that we're cooking we'll be featuring those great stories in the back half."
Murphy went on confirming that "Thriller", Katie Couric and a big Sue Sylvester blowout will occur in the Super Bowl episode. Calling the "Thriller" details "top secret", he hinted, "All I'll say about that is that we're putting a new spin on it that I think people will really like." He, however, debunked the story that Couric would do "Tea for Two".
