The cast of Glee starts production on season 4 next week, and while they aren’t saying much, here’s what we know after their stop at EW.com’s studio at Comic-Con earlier today:

+ Rachel is headed to New York, but she will be back in Ohio more than we might think, according to Lea Michele.

+ Cory Monteith is training hard for next season — but stopped short of saying that Finn will be in military basic training.

+ Darren Criss has a beard.

+ The cast has at least three hardcore Game of Thrones fans.
