Can you imagine Glee without Rachel Berry, Finn Hudson, and Kurt Hummel? Well, you might need to start, because Ryan Murphy has plans to graduate his core cast!
High school doesn’t last forever, not even in TV land, so it should come as no surprise that Ryan Murphy has plans to move out his core cast members, like Cory Monteith, Lea Michele, Mark Salling and Chris Colfer, and make room for some new students. The question is…who are you willing to lose to graduation?
In a recent interview with News Limited in Australia, the Glee creator admitted that even he doesn’t have the magic to keep around his original New Directions kids. “Every year we’re going to populate a new group,” Ryan said in the article. “There’s nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot.”
The mastermind behind one of TV’s hottest shows revealed that the end of the 2012 season is most likely the time when the cast makes their exit. “”I think you have to be true to the fact that here is a group of people who come and go in these teachers’ lives – they graduate and they’re gone,” he said, before admitting that introducing Chord Overstreet was part of the process to bring new students in and phasing the older ones out.
“When some of them finish their run at high school it will be very teary episodes. For me it will be particularly tough but a new crop (of actors) will come in,” Ryan admitted.
Glee fans have been so used to the drama of “Finchel” and the antics of Puck, and it’s hard to imagine an episode without Kurt. When the time comes for the original cast members to “graduate,” who will get the most tears from you and who will you be glad to see go?
