Glee Cast Graduating

Even though they may receive their diplomas, the ‘Glee’ creators are going back on their original plans and say they want to keep the main cast members around in season four! Woo hoo!

Earlier this season, sparks flew between leading Glee cast members and the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy, when he claimed he wanted to write them off after they graduated from high school at the end of the season and was not, as previously discussed, creating a spin-off for them. However, now Ryan is singing a different tune.

“We were talking about doing different things and then we decided to work on this season,” Ryan told reporters on set celebrating the show’s 300th musical number Oct. 26.

He added, “I think that just because people graduate, which I thought was very important to the show, that doesn’t mean they’re not on Glee or not a part of the Glee world. We haven’t figured out what that is yet. We’re figuring that out.”

That said, not everyone like Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer are confirmed to stick around for seasons to come…but Ryan made it clear it won’t be because HE gave them the boot.

“A lot of it will depend on the actors and what their dreams are and what they want to do and what they feel that have left in them,” he explained. “We’re obviously a very close group of people. We talk about these things every day.”
