I’m stunned to announce that some key characters on Glee will be leaving and thus not returning for season 4.
The show’s top stars Lea Michele (Rachel), Chris Colfer (Kurt) and Cory Montieth (Finn) will be saying their goodbyes prior to the show’s fourth season.
With the news being broken by the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy told THR,
“[They are] not going to be back at all for Season 4. 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.”
The trio of departures pile on top of the loss of Chord Overstreet. who is out for season three – though the possibility of guest appearances is still an option.
I can’t believe they are not returning. Two years ago no one knew who any of these people were and now they are celebrities thanks to this show. What will the show be without them? You can add new talented singers to the show but the charm comes from this lead cast, without them I’m not sure the show will survive. Also, what will these stars go on to do? They can bask in their 15 minutes of fame but then will they have much of an acting career after?
