The good news is there will be a third season of Glee, the bad news is that three of the stars are graduating at the end of season 3. Sadly, Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer will not be returning. The decision was made by the show’s creator.
The creator of the show, Ryan Murphy explains, "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 and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year.”
So we have to say good bye to Rachel, Finn and Kurt and who knows who else may be headed to college when season three ends. They report that more characters are leaving than staying! Reports are that Chord Overstreet, Sam, has not been picked up for season three as yet. You have to wonder how that will affect the show.
A couple of tweets from Lea show that she is fine with the decision and it wasn’t really a surprise. She tweets to fans: "We always knew we'd graduate in real time," she tweeted "Its all part of the plan and it's all good! Its going to make Season 3 amazing!"
She later added: "To Gleeks everywhere, you're in my heart now and forever. Love you all!!! This is just the beginning."
So I guess we just wait and see what happens after enjoying season 3? Personally, I hate when regulars leave a show. It’s just never the same.
