There was some news at the Glee PaleyFest panel tonight. Here are a few highlights, courtesy of our sister site TVLine, which has full coverage:

Glee co-creator/executive producer Ryan Murphy said that he’s making plans for Gwyneth Paltrow, who is set to appear in one more episode, her third, this season, ”to come back next year.” “Gwyneth is sort of the muse of the show,” Murphy said. “She’s  somebody who I write on the weekends and say, ‘What do you think about this for an episode even if you’re not in it?’ She has opinions. She’s great.”

Murphy also said that the show’s creators had long wanted to do an episode devoted to an album as opposed to an artist. They will now do it with Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors for an episode now in the works.

Additionally, Murphy confirmed that Kristin Chenoweth’s April Rhodes will return this season, and she’ll sing the Glee original, “It’s 10 am, I’m Drunk.”
