Tuesday, July 26, 2011
While the reports that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer are going to leave glee after grsaduating are still high, Brad Falchuk, the executive producer of the popular program Glee informed the fan’s of Fox’s musical sitcom that the upcoming season will not be the last of Rachel, Finn and Kurt.
During a panel discussion at Comic-Con International in San Diego, Falchuk said, “It was never our plan or our intention to let them go.”
“They are not done with the show after this season,” he added.
Just about two weeks ago, the co-creator of the show, Ryan Murphy said that Michele, Monteith and Colfer wouldn’t return for the fourth season as they will graduate at the end of the fall season. Murphy commented, “You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life.”
Murphy’s remarks provoked reactions from the fans and from the stars of the popular series. Michele tried to assure the fans of Glee by commenting, It’s all part of the plan,” while Colfer revealed that he heard about the casting news via Twitter.
However, Falchuk put an end on the speculations of change in starcast as he said that they’re graduating from William McKinley High School, but not from the show. “If you have Lea Michele under contract, you don’t say, ‘We’re gonna let you go,’ ” he said.
Yet, Chord Overstreet is set to leave Glee as he was offered a deal to return for 10 episodes with a possibility of promoting him as a regular cast. However, Overstreet turned down the proposal as he was interested in pursuing other opportunities.
