While we’re all completely upset with the news of ‘Glee’ ending after season six, the stars have faith that the writers will end it in the right way. Jenna Ushkowitz, who portrays Tina Cohen-Chang on the show, spoke exclusively to HollywoodLife.com and revealed what she hopes for at the end — and what she’s hoping doesn’t happen.
Glee will sadly come to an end after season six, creator Ryan Murphy confirmed on Oct.16. While we know that the Glee cast doesn’t want to “over stay their welcome” on the show, Jenna Ushkowitz is just hoping to stay in high school a little bit longer.
‘Glee’ Ending After Season Six: Jenna Ushkowitz React
“I was super excited [at the beginning of season 3] when I heard Tina was a junior, since I thought she was going to be a senior with all the others,” Jenna told us at Midori’s 3rd Annual Halloween Event on October 29 at Bootsy Bellows. “We have had an amazing journey, so it is a bit bittersweet. But I am sure that we will all stay in touch. We are still a family, but it will be very sad. But I am excited to see where we all end up.”
As for Lea Michele, we told you that she’s looking forward to a making a leap to the big screen.
“Lea wants a movie career and she wants to make sure that the other people in the cast get enough time to save some money and spend some time to figure out what to do with their careers,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
Jenna though, would be open to many different acting opportunities
“This was my first real TV show so I am not opposed for another one,” she told us. “I have never done movies so I would like to try that afterwards and I will definitely go back to theater with the right show.”
Jenna: What I Wouldn’t Want To See On ‘Glee’ Ending
As the show still has a season and a half left, Jenna has a lot to look forward to. She told us that the episode dedicated to Billy Joel was one of her favorites — and we can’t wait, either.
While that episode is one that she’s super excited to see, she isn’t so excited for what the writers have in store for the finale.
“Normally we allow the writers to surprise us but I would not want to see the after after years!” she told us — you mean, the way that Dawson’s Creek skipped ahead five years? Yeah that wouldn’t really work for Glee, anyway. “I would like it to end the way it is supposed to be.”
So, HollywoodLifers — do you think the creators will end it the way YOU want it? Let us know!
