'Glee' boosts five recurring characters to regulars

HOLLYWOOD, June 30 (UPI) -- Five "Glee" stars have been upped from recurring characters to regular roles for the fifth season of the CBS musical dramedy, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Melissa Benoist, Jacob Artist and Becca Tobin are among those with new contracts, along with "The Glee Project" alums, Blake Jenner and Alex Ne as well, the entertainment industry publication reported Saturday.

The news comes one day after it was announced Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., Dianna Agron and Heather Morris will be leaving the high school-set television show. The four could return as guests in Season 5.

Morris' character graduated in the fourth season finale, and her pregnancy could complicate guest appearances, The Hollywood Reporter said.

The Oxygen network is currently considering the future of "The Glee Project," a reality series based on the CBS show in which the winner is rewarded with a five-episode arc on "Glee."

Jenner and Newell both got their starts on "Glee" after winning the reality competition in seasons 2 and 1 respectively.
