I was going to leave this for my Saturday TV jumble - not. No, it's pressing and it's Glee related, so here goes ...
First thing is first- Ryan Murphy has announced that Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith will not be returning to the series should it get a fourth season. Season 3 will see their characters Rachel, Kurt and Finn graduate. Ryan Murphy had this to say ...
We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top.
He also said that more characters will be leaving than staying, which more or less seems to fuel a new generation of Glee clubbers if the show does go for a fourth year.
And then there's Chord Overstreet. His character Sam will not be a regular for the upcoming third season but there's a possibility that we'll see him in some capacity in the upcoming season. The first episode of Season 3 will apparently give a clear indicator as to which kids are graduating. I have to admit that I actually respect Ryan Murphy's decision on this. I just hope it works in both his and the show's favours because there are already internet fans lamenting that they won't stick around. Must be the Klaine obsessives.
What does everyone else think on the matter? Is Ryan Murphy doing the right thing or shooting himself in the foot?
