Summary of Glee Season 1-4 DVD Box Set
Former glee club star Will Schuester takes over McKinley High School's glee club in the hopes of restoring it to its former glory. He is faced with the challenge of converting a group of misfits, including fame-hungry Rachel Berry, Mercedes Jones, Kurt Hummel, Tina Cohen-Chang, and Artie Abrams, into a team of singers. When Will discovers that football quarterback Finn Hudson has a secret talent for singing, he blackmails Finn into joining the club. His friendship with friend and colleague, Ken Tanaka, the football coach suffers when Ken discovers his crush and guidance counselor, Emma Pillsbury has a crush on Will. Meanwhile, Will's pregnant wife Terri pushes Will to find a higher paying job to support his family. Will considers quitting his job and commitment to the glee club, but overhears New Directions performing "Don't Stop Believin'" so well that he ends up returning after getting guidance from Emma, concluding that he could not bear to see them win Nationals without him.
The glee club perform in front of the school for the first time in an attempt to recruit new members. Will takes a second job as a janitor and grows closer to Emma, the school guidance counselor, who determines not to become his rebound girl and instead accepts a date with football coach Ken Tanaka. Terri discovers she is having a hysterical pregnancy, but hides the truth from Will, telling him they are having a son. Cheerleaders Santana, Brittany, and Finn's girlfriend Quinn join New Directions, recruited by coach Sue Sylvester to help bring down the club. Rachel and Finn kiss while practicing singing, but Finn chooses to return to Quinn.
Will forms an all-male a cappella group called the "Acafellas", neglecting the glee club in favor of dedicating his time to the new endeavor. After two of its members quit, glee club member Finn and his best friend Puck join. The group records an album and performs at the school PTA meeting in front of celebrity guest Josh Groban, but Will ultimately recommits to New Directions. In his absence, the club members struggle with choreography, and resist attempts at sabotage by members of the cheer squad. They briefly hire well–known choreographer Dakota Stanley, but fire him when he belittles their appearances and abilities. Mercedes harbors romantic feelings for Kurt, who comes out to her as gay.
McKinley High’s glee club and cheerleading squad budgets are cut to allocate more money for the football program and its new football coach Shannon Beiste (Dot-Marie Jones), so directors Will Schuester and Sue Sylvester scheme to get their money restored. Finn and Rachel try to find new recruits for New Directions, but Rachel feels threatened by the talent of her recruit, Sunshine (guest star Charice), an exchange student from the Philippines. Quinn replaces Santana as head of the Cheerios, Finn is kicked off the football team, and Tina and Mike (Harry Shum, Jr.) begin dating.
New Directions wants to perform a Britney Spears number at the Homecoming Assembly, but Will is reluctant to let them be that edgy. Emma's new boyfriend Carl (John Stamos), a dentist, treats glee club members Brittany, Santana, Rachel and Artie, all of whom experience Britney Spears fantasies while under anesthesia. Artie joins the football team, and Finn is reinstated. Will ultimately okays a Spears number and takes a lead role in the hopes of impressing Emma, but the assembly performance ends in chaos.
Upon seeing the face of Jesus in his grilled cheese sandwich, Finn has an existential crisis. Because of this, the members of the glee club discuss religion and its significance to them, but this is uncomfortable for Kurt, who is an atheist, and who is facing his own, more serious crisis when his father Burt has a heart attack and becomes comatose. Sue questions her own beliefs and talks to her sister Jean about God.
The glee club is down to ten members and needs to recruit, so director Will Schuester assigns them a project to get new singers. Cheerleading coach Sue Sylvester runs for congress on a platform of cutting the arts in schools, and directs new cheerleading co-captains Santana and Becky (Lauren Potter) to sabotage the pianos being used in the glee club project. Blaine transfers to McKinley High to be with Kurt and joins New Directions. Rachel and Kurt's post-graduate plans for New York suffer a setback.
Will sets up a boot camp for some of the members of the glee club to improve their dancing. Auditions begin for the school musical, West Side Story. Sue features Quinn in an anti-arts commercial for her congressional campaign. Shelby Corcoran (Idina Menzel) is hired to set up a rival glee club at McKinley High, and reaches out to her adopted daughter's birth parents Quinn and Puck. Kurt begins his campaign for senior class president.
After Mike gets an "A−" on a chemistry test, his father wants him to dro p glee club. He instead auditions for West Side Story. Mercedes also auditions, but refuses to share the role of Maria with Rachel when the two are to be double-cast; she also quits New Directions, and joins Shelby's rival glee club. Brittany's campaign for senior class president kicks into high gear, and Rachel becomes a third candidate, infuriating the other candidate, Kurt. Emma Pillsbury's parents visit, and cause a flare-up of her OCD. The musical's cast list is posted.
On April 9, 2012, Fox renewed Glee for a fourth season. Ryan Murphy has confirmed that all regular cast members from the third season will be returning to the show for its fourth season, though "it doesn't mean everyone will be doing 22 episodes".
The fourth season will continue to be set at McKinley High in Ohio and follow several of the just-graduated characters to New York, and will be set at a performing arts school there. The Ohio portion of the show will feature a number of new characters. Two actresses have been announced for multi-episode guest-starring arcs as part of the New York sequences: Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson. Parker's character will be a mentor to Kurt, and Hudson's a mentor to Rachel; Hudson will be appearing in six episodes during the fall.
Fox announced on May 14, 2012, that Glee would be moving to Thursday nights at 9 pm ET for the fourth season. Episodes will be airing after that evening's 8 pm ET Music competition "results" shows—The X Factor in the fall and American Idol in midseason. The season will premiere on September 13, 2012. The second episode of the season is being planned as the show's second Britney Spears tribute, and will feature eight of her songs.
On June 4, 2012, writer Marti Noxon announced that she will no longer be a writer and consulting producer for the show. Three new regular characters will be added for season four of the show, including a female high school student, a male character in his twenties, and Puck's younger brother who plays the guitar.
