Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer Won’t Return to “Glee” for Its Fourth Season!
Shocking news coming from the halls of McKinley High!
According to show co-creator Ryan Murphy, Lea Michele (Rachel Berry), Chris Colfer (Kurt Hummel) and Cory Monteith (Finn Hudson) are three members of the cast who will be moving on at the end of the upcoming Season 3.
When interviewed by The Hollywood Reporter, who broke the news, Murphy confirmed that they are “not going to be back at all for Season 4.” Oh no!!!
He then continued, “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.”
Murphy had also revealed that we will find out in the season-three premiere (Sept. 20) who’s graduating and who’s staying.
Murphy claimed to THR that two of the stars were involved in the talks about their characters graduating.
“We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea,” Murphy said. “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.”
Furthermore, Murphy acknowledges he hasn’t discussed it with Monteith but, “He knows he was a sophomore when the show started.”
Are you sad about the three of them leaving? Well, I do! :(
