Series co-creator Ryan Murphy told E! News that Groff will return as the new coach of McKinley High's archrival glee club, Vocal Adrenaline. The actor will appear in four episodes during the season leading up to the national competition.

The site also reports that Groff will have scenes with "The Glee Project" runner-up Alex Newell, who won a chance to appear on a two-episode arc for the season along with Lindsay Pearce. Pearce appeared in the show's premiere and will reportedly pop up again later this season.

The report also states that the show's 300th performance, which will air on November 15, will be a mash-up of Adele songs "Rumor Has It" and "Someone Like You."

Groff, 26, played a member of a rival high school glee club who romanced, manipulated and later dumped Lea Michele's character, glee club diva Rachel Berry on season one.

The actor returned for season two where it was revealed that St. James flunked out of college and aided the New Directions team to Nationals.

Michele Tweeted about Groff's return on Wednesday writing, " #Jesseisback! So happy to have my best friend in the world Jonathan Groff back on #glee this year! Makes me the happiest girl in the world!"

The two are good friends in real life and also played lovers in the musical "Spring Awakening," which debuted on Broadway in 2006.
