Goldberg's character Carmen Tibideaux is a professor at the New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts. Her role on the show will be to oversee the auditions of Glee characters, Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer).

Lohan will also be appearing in the third season, but according to Deadline, she will only be appearing in one episode. She is said to playing herself, as a judge at the Nationals.

Lohan recently hosted Saturday Night Live, where she poked fun at herself and her legal issues. The episode received mixed reviews.

In addition to appearing on Glee, Goldberg will be directing a documentary on Jackie "Moms" Mabley, an African American comedy pioneer. She is also producing the Broadway musical, Sister Act, originally an onscreen movie that she starred in as Deloris Van Cartier.

There had been talks of a Glee spinoff with Lea Michele and Chris Colfer since they will be graduating at the end of this season. However, Fox does not want to go through with this project. Instead, the graduating seniors will be included in the fourth season.

Further information of how they will be incorporated has yet to be revealed.

Lea Michele and Chris Colfer have already confirmed their return.

A Whitney Houston tribute episode is said to be in the works, as well as a tribute to The Who's classic rock opera Tommy.

The season three finale is set to air on May 22.
