Idina Menzel Headed Back to Glee

Idina Menzel is in final negotiations to return for the next season of Glee, and her character as Rachel Berry's mother is apparently set for a major upgrade. This time around, according to Deadline's Nikki Finke, Rachel's biological mom is going to be a William McKinley High teacher, which obviously means Will Schuester, played by Matthew Morrison, is going to have some serious in-house competition when it comes to voting for "Teacher With the Best Singing Voice." But looks like this may be just a one-season promotion, considering that Glee creator Ryan Murphy is axing graduating Lea Michele's headlining role after this year. [Deadline]
