'Glee' Season 5 Promo: New Directions Comes Together for the Beatles (Video)
With only three weeks to go before Glee returns, Fox has released the first look at the upcoming fifth season -- and it's surprisingly upbeat.
The 30-second promo preview, fittingly dubbed "Come Together," showcases New Directions covering the Beatles in the first of the season's two-part tribute episode, complete with the Fab Four's famed mop tops and fashion stylings.
The fifth season will launch with "Love, Love, Love," the first half of the Beatles tribute on Sept. 26, followed on Oct. 3 with the second hour "Tina in the Sky With Diamonds." Both episodes will feature 14 tracks, including "Yesterday," "Drive My Car," "Help," "Here Comes the Sun" and more. (Check out the complete track list here.)
The first new footage makes no mention to Finn Hudson, with producers adjusting the pair of Beatles episodes following the July passing of star Cory Monteith. The late actor will be the focus of Glee's third episode on Oct. 10.
Check out the promo, below, and hit the comments with your thoughts. Are you looking forward to the Beatles episodes?
