LOS ANGELES – There have been conflicting reports on when Charice will be back on “Glee”. But in an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN, the show’s creator shared details on when and how the young star will return as Sunshine Corazon.

“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy said: “She’s coming back in a big way. We’re finishing the year with her. She’s coming back for five episodes at the end of the year. She’s gonna be great. Lots of big, big ballads for Charice.”

Charice’s co-stars are excited to work with her again.

Another “Glee”creator, Kevin McHale, added, “Charice is awesome, we love her. We can’t wait till she comes back.”

The show’s other stars also gave “Glee” scoops: The so-called 'Asian love team,' Harry Shum Jr. and Jenna Ushkowitz, talked about what’s coming up for one of “Glee’s” favorite couples.

“A little bit of drama, but nothing serious, they’re still going strong. They get to spend Valentine’s Day together,” Ushkowitz said.

"Jenna has a really cute song that she sings for me that I think people will love. It’s very interesting. She gets to play her comedic and dramatic talents,” said Shum Jr.

“Glee” will be back on TV in February, and it’s going to be a “Thriller” of a show. They are performing Michael Jackson’s iconic hit song.

Amber Riley of “Glee” added: “Our next episode is the big Superbowl episode. An hour-and-a-half episode and we’re really excited about it. It’s really big. We’re dancing, we’re on the football, there’s zombie make-up, there’s people being shot out of the cannon. People are gonna love it.”

Golden Globes Best Supporting Actor winner, Chris Colfer, shared his thoughts on what’s next for his character “Kurt” and his onscreen relationship with the character played by Fil-Am star Darren Criss.

“Whatever makes Kurt happiest, I’m all for. If that means a relationship with Blaine or with someone else, or maybe friendship, is what he needs with Blaine, but whatever makes Kurt happiest I’m great with,” said Colfer. “If we do hook up on the show, we should do the love melody from ‘Moulin Rouge’. We should.”
