Now The Glee Stars Won’t Be Leaving?
I have to admit, I don’t watch Glee on a weekly basis. I waited till the First Season was on DVD to watch it all. I really dislike waiting a week for a new episode. And, that is exactly what I am doing for Season 2…waiting for it to come out on DVD. But I still keep up on what’s going on with the show. If you do too, then you may have heard about some of the cast “graduating” off the show.
“Glee” creator Ryan Murphy has stated several times that a majority of the current stars of “Glee” will be leaving when their characters graduate at the end of next season. He specifically named Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, and Cory Monteith as being on their way out .
“You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year.”
To me it makes sense, but, It seems like the creators aren’t seeing eye to eye, because at Comic-Con this weekend, “Glee” co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk said,
“Because they’re graduating doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show . It was never our plan, it was never our intention to let them go. They are not done with the show after this season.”
Murphy, who wasn’t there, hasn’t commented.
Amber O’Riley, who plays Mercedes, recently told E! that her days on the show might be numbered as well.
“I may not be coming back for a fourth season. Who knows? Whatever happens this third season is what happens, and I think everybody’s OK with it. I love my job to pieces, but when it’s time to go, it’s time to go and, hopefully, there are greater things on the horizon.”
Looks like we will have to wait for the next season to find out whats happening. In my humble opinion, I love Lea Michele’s voice, but her snobby attitude turn me off, big time!
