Big changes are coming for ‘Glee.’ According to the mastermind behind the series, we may be seeing the return of the old Rachel, big changes are coming after graduation and ‘Blam’ will team up in the most exciting way! Read on for tons of season four spoilers!
Sadly, there’s no new episode of Glee on Feb. 28, but co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy teased the latter half of season four at a Paley Center event honoring his work on Feb. 27, allowing us to forgive Fox for giving us another rerun this week.
“I actually have a meeting tomorrow morning at 11 where I have to pitch out not only the end of this year but the next year,” Ryan told TVGuide.com on Feb. 27. “I think what I want to do — and I hope it is liked by the other people who control my paychecks — is… something that we’ve never done before. So, a different kind of storytelling — not what you would think. I didn’t want to do something that we’ve done every year. I wanted to do something that was a little longer, sort of novelistic in the storytelling, [with] a couple good cliff-hangers.”
Sounds interesting! It’s funny, though, because Ryan said something similar last year when he decided to carry on a show within the show — having Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) live out their lives in NYC while the rest of the gang held up things in Lima, Ohio. We can’t even imagine what Ryan has in store for season five!
Most of the cast was also on hand at the Paley Center event, honoring Ryan, including Chord Overstreet, Jenna Ushkowitz, Lea, Naya Rivera and more! Thankfully, they spilled some spoilers as well!
“I don’t know if [Sam] will graduate,” Chord said. “That hasn’t come up once, so nobody really knows what the game plan is about all that.”
“[Graduation is] a little scary because last year graduation for them meant goodbye, but I’m excited,” Jenna added. “I think it will open new doors for Tina and I think that she’s had a really good senior year.”
Don’t worry. Her future won’t involve flirting with Blaine (Darren Criss) or rubbing any more Vicks Vapor Rub on his chest!
Instead, “[Blaine's] going to help her find a boyfriend,” Jenna said. “We haven’t really gotten into that story line yet, but it’s sort of gone away from Tina literally straddling Blaine.”
Ryan wouldn’t give away too much regarding Rachel’s pregnancy storyline, but he did say: “For me, I was really interested in that idea of the single girl in New York trying to figure it out and I wanted something that would jolt her, good or bad, back to her core. She and Santana have a really big story about that where Santana is like, ‘What the hell happened to you?’ which I think happens to a lot of people right out of high school. They waver from their dream a little bit and Santana’s job is to sort of get her back on the right track.”
Okay, so Blaine and Sam won’t get involved romantically, but they are teaming up to guide New Direcitons!
“[Sam and Blaine] take over the glee club and start teaching because Mr. Schue goes out with the flu. We kind of take a week to just have fun,” Chord said.
Wait — what about Finn (Cory Monteith)? Maybe he travels to NYC to take care of his pregnant girlfriend! (That’s just my wishful thinking.)
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Are you excited for these new Glee developments?
