Ryan Murphy, the creator and head of Glee, has confirmed that he's sticking to the idea that those who were juniors this past season on the show, will indeed be graduating next spring.
While some people might be bummed about this, you can't argue that it doesn't make sense. Sticking to the experience of actual high schoolers, kids graduate. Plain and simple!
“This next [season] will be their senior year, and then that [they] will graduate. We didn’t want to have a show where they were in high school for eight years. We really wanted to be true to that experience.”
So who will be filling in the empty spots?
Murphy isn't very keen on the term "replacing," but who is he really kidding, because that's exactly what it is:
“There’s a couple rumors floating around, that half the cast is go to be replaced by the winner of The Glee Project, which is not true."
He went on to explain that some newbies will be introduced near the beginning of the season, and then midseason, including just one person from the Glee Project that will have at least seven episodes.
It will be very very inneresting to see how they handle these transitions. Either way, when those who are ready to graduate do (such as Rachel, Finn, Quinn and Puck), it'll be extremely emotional!
Though, Ryan has said that the permanent flow of the show will be placed on Matthew Morrison and Jane Lynch, so it'll be nice to see them keep SOME familiar faces throughout the years!
How do U feel about this process??
