McHale will bring his three seasons’ worth of experience to the fifth episode of the season, scheduled for July 3. It will mark his second turn as a mentor following his turn last year during the show’s “Generosity” hour that saw co-runner-up Lindsay Pearce earn one-on-one time with him.

Upcoming mentors include Jane Lynch, making her Glee Project debut July 10 for another new theme, “Fearlessness”; Amber Riley stepping in for “Tenacity,” which was mentored by Max Adler last year; Darren Criss, making his third appearance July 31 for another new theme, “Romanticality”; and Chris Colfer debuting in the Aug. 14 hour for “Glee-ality.”
McHale joins season-two mentors including Lea Michele, Samuel Larsen, Cory Monteith and Naya Rivera, who will oversee Tuesday’s episode.
