Max Adler has booked a return visit to the Fox musical and will reprise his role as former bully-turned-openly gay good guy Dave Karofsky, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Adler’s arc is said to be major and he’ll appear in at least four of the final 13 episodes of the series. Sources tell THR that Dave may now be romantically tangled with Blaine (Darren Criss), which is surprising news since season five ended with Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine seemingly better than ever as a couple after performing at a glitzy showcase for the all-powerful social mover June (Shirley MacLaine). However, Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy told reporters in April that the final season would feature a time jump — and focus more on the core original cast members — which could mean Kurt and Blaine have split after that. Or, knowing Glee, it could all be part of an elaborate dream sequence.

Met Darren, he was really nice, obviously sympathetic to how long we’d been waiting. Asked about great things to do in SF and he said to just do all the tourist things.
The other people wanted him to say something as Blaine (and then were too shy so I asked). He wasn’t sure what to say, then said “Have you got any requests for tomorrow?” In his Blaine voice and… Wow that was so fucking weird. Much weirder than just seeing him.
He still wasn’t sure what to say, I think he just something like, “well, he speaks slower and higher”, still in the Blaine voice.
I asked, “So what do you think Blaine wants to happen in season 6?” And he replied, “Blaine wants to get married, like, yesterday.”
There was more general talking, and he gave us all high fives, which he’d been doing at all the tables, and that was that.
