The new season of “Glee” will include a character who was last seen in an important story arc in the first season of the show, Deadline.com reports.
Broadway star Idina Menzel is in final negotiations to return to the Fox show to reprise her role as Rachel Berry’s biological mother, according to the story.
Menzel first appeared in five episodes of the show’s first season, when she played the coach of rival glee club Vocal Adrenaline. Her character left town after adopting Quinn and Puck’s baby girl.
Her character, Shelby Corcoran, will return to Ohio from New York in the show’s third season as a new teacher, complicating the lives of Rachel and her coach Will Schuester. The character is expected to appear in about half of the season’s episodes.
