The cast of the Glee seem to be going through more drama in real life than the reel dramedy. Earlier this month, Glee creator Ryan Murphy revealed that three characters from the serial, Lea Michele , Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith would be leaving Glee after Season 3, only to have fellow executive producer, Brad Falchuk deny the same at the ComicCon.
Ryan Murphy had announced earlier that these three would be graduating from William McKinley and will not be returning for season 4. Murphy was planning a spin-off featuring the three actors, but now the project seems to be on hold. Falchuk said at the Comic Con, "they are not done with the show after this season."
In an interview to Deadline.com, Murphy clarified some doubts about the rumors on the cast’s firing. He said that they were not fired from the musical drama by Fox and in fact the three were consulted on the future plans . The show spin-off was planned to take place in New York, Julliard.
Lea Michelle had even responded to the graduating news on twitter by writing, “We always knew we’d graduate in real time. It’s all part of the plan and it’s all good! It’s going to make Season 3 amazing!!!” And “To Gleeks everywhere, you’re in my heart now and forever. Love u all!!! This is just the beginning!!”
In the interview Ryan Murphy said that the actors were wrong to say that they got to know they were fired through twitter messages. According to him, they were on board since the beginning and their creative inputs were sought on where their characters were going. “The actors have a seven year contract and if they are graduating from the show then so many of them are beloved, if they don’t go to New York, maybe they’ll do something else. We haven’t even thought of that,” he added.
When asked whether there will be a spin-off or not , he said , “As of now, I can tell you I’m not working on it.”
