"At the beginning of season six, we find out what happened with Rachel in Los Angeles and with the TV show and that gets really messed up," Michele spills in our first look video above. "She finds herself back in Ohio but for good reason because these kids need her and she's back to sort of re-boot the glee club."

But Rachel's not the only one who finds herself back in Lima after losing out on her dreams. Due to his slipping grades, Blaine is dropped from NYADA and, like Rachel, is forced move back in with his parents and get a new job.

"I'm the new coach of the Warblers," Blaine announces to Rachel over some java in their old high school hangout The Lima Bean.
