Comic-Con lent itself to the Glee panel on Sunday and lots of juicy talk went down. Read on to find out what co-creator and executive producer Brad Falchuk had to say about all the talk swirling around the graduating seniors.
We’ve been talking about the Glee graduation of stars Cory Monteith, Lea Michele and Chris Colfer at the end of season three for weeks now, but new reports from Comic-Con give us a glimmer of hope it’s a play on words and they’ll still appear on the show.
Fox’s Glee hit Comic-Con on Sunday (July 24) and during its panel many questions were answered that we’ve been buzzing about for weeks. Here are some great highlights to put you at ease.
“They are not done with the show after this season. Because they’re graduating doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show. If you have Lea Michele under contract, you don’t just say, ‘We’re going to let you go.'”
He added, “It was never our plan, it was never our intention to let them go. They are not done with the show after this season.”
Another thing he cleared up was that there won’t be a spin-off — right now — and Mercedes (Amber Riley) will get a new boyfriend! That is going to be one heck of a story. Season three will also be split between the fall and spring.
So, how do you feel about Brad Falchuk’s statement at Comic-Con? Are you happy Glee isn’t just going to ditch its star players? Tell us, we want to know.
