There are a couple of important things here to report now when it comes to “Glee” season 5, but let us start with something that we know has become a hot subject of debate as of late: Whether or not the fifth season of the show is going to be made up of 22 episodes. There were rumors running around that the order may be shortened to 19 episodes, and it was easier to buy into these “rumors” than most discussions of such things. Why? Think along the lines of the fact that there was the hiatus after the Cory Monteith tragedy, and that production time loss may have just meant that Fox decided to just go with a shorter order.
However, TVLine confirms today that there will still be 22 episodes in this fifth season, with the back nine of them being (as we know already) more New York-centered stories compared to ones that put the life and times of McKinley High into perspective.

Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, Naya Rivera, and the rest of the “Glee” cast have relocated to New York City for rest of season five.
The cast and crew of the Fox TV show will permanently stay there, it was reported.
Fox Entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said that the show won’t be split between Lima, Ohio, and New York, and it will only be set in NYC.
“We do have it through next season, and that will be its final season. He’s [Ryan Murphy] got some fantastic ideas on what we’re going to do next year for the final year,” he said.
Reilly added that some characters on the show will be leaving McKinley High behind.
“Some are going to be graduating and moving; creatively, it would be ridiculous that everybody moves to New York,” he told EW.com.
“There will be some that will graduate and move on and they’ll arc back in when we do special episodes. They’ll always be a part of it… But for this season, there will be a graduation, several of the cast members will move on and a few others will go to New York.”
A number of fans have called on the show’s producers to move the setting permanently to New York.
He said the sixth season of “Glee” will be the final one.
It’s been quite some time since there was any Brittany/Santana action on “Glee.” On Jan 18, Matt Carter shared a spoiler from Naya Rivera who plays Santana.
Heather Morris who plays Brittany was away from the show because she was expecting her first child. This was covered in the story by an unbelievable MIT scholarship Brittany got and accepted. It appears Morris is set to return.
It is unclear what here scenes will entail but we do know they will involve Santana to some extent. Naya posted on her Twitter account that fans should look for some kind of “Brittana shocker.”
