COMEDY. She may not have slushies thrown in her face anymore — this is college after all — but Rachel quickly realizes that navigating the New York Academy of Dramatic Arts isn't much easier than surviving high school. Standing in her way is failed Broadway star/dance teacher Cassandra (Kate Hudson, in a six-episode stint). Back at McKinley, keep an eye out for new mean girl Kitty (Becca Tobin) and transfer students Marley (Melissa Benoist) and Unique ("Glee Project" contestant Alex Newell).
