Glee Kids Set To Graduate WILL Be Graduating

Glee Seniors Graduating

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!

Murphy:

“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??

    I love it! It's genius… and the kids can actually go off and fulfill their dreams instead of like going to community college near lima heights so they can be on the show. It gives them a proper ending and an opportunity for cameos when they come home to visit. Besides Lea MIchele is too big for Glee!

    take Lea Michele and the original cast off the show and it will fail. No one wants new characters or the original cast to graduate hopefully he'll find someway to incorporate the original cast into the show when they graduate or do a spinoff with Rachel, Finn. Kurt and Blaine in the city. He should just end the show when the original cast graduates

    so, i guess this will be my last season of glee. i watch because I LOVE THIS CAST, thier voices and their acting. i agree that the show will completly crash and burn without Lea or Cory or Chris. the original cast makes the show what it is.. hopefuly they will have a New York Spinoff.



  4. 4

    take away 4 of the main characters…and the shows going downhill. people have "bonded" with the characters, i dont see it doing well after thier gone.



  5. 5

    I'm pissed off!! There's no glee without Rachel and Finn! They are basically the main characters… the show is going to be shit without them
    Lea michele is the best singer on the show, there goes all of there glee fans once they are gone

    I love the cast, but the 'kids' in this show already look more like teachers than students. They should have characters who are sophomores, juniors, and seniors, so that when the seniors graduate, we are familiar with the rest, and have a new bunch of younger kids each year as well.

    Ugh, I guess giving them leave is a merciful blow because good shows that are really popular have a tendency to turn really awful really fast. But Ryan Murphy should know that in TV nobody likes annoying new people. It sounds harsh but it's true, they're just going to suck up all of the beloved character's time next season. And I'll be damned if some fucking reality show contestant has a role on the show…that totally cheapens everything.

    At least now I know this is my last season watching Glee. Rachel Berry will graduate and so will this Glee fan. Lea Michele's talent was wasted on Glee in season 2 anyways.

    This is the right decision. Graduate when you are on top!



  10. 10

    but.. theyre 30…

    Sorry it makes sense. Love all the cast. But, I had to graduate from my Arts High School too. WE all cried like babies. But, then college and a whole new world!



  12. 12

    Way to kill the show. I won't be watching once Rachel graduates.



  13. 13

    I'm kind of dreading this. I began watching the show because of Rachel and Finn. The kids make the show what it is. Jane and Matthew are great, but ugh…. It's not Glee w/o Rachel, Finn, Puck and Quinn.



  14. 14

    this last season was way too much finn and quinn
    they better make good use of rachel while they have her
    cause when she's gone most of us by the looks of this post are leaving with her

    First of all, am I the only one who didn't know they were different ages?! So Brittney, Mercedes, Santana, Kurt, Arty, etc are all younger and will be there another year until THEY graduate too and more new cast memebers are introduced?? While I agree that it makes sense to have the kids graduate as they get older, I'm not a fan of the idea at all. You break up a cast and you lose chemistry, not just with the cast members, but with the audience. Look at what happened with Saved by the Bell! I love the show so I'll give it a chance, but doubt I won't be disappointed.



  16. 16

    I think Puck should get left back…I love Puck…I just wanna see more Puck….



  17. 17

    This is a good idea. Good show. Another good show: Extreme Chef! Sneak Peek this Sunday, June 26 at 10:30pm/9:30c. I'm so excited!!!

    People love this show so much because they love the characters. What would Glee be without Rachel or Finn. The idea makes sense, no one expects them to be in school for 8 years, but you can follow some of the main characters to where ever they go, and still bring in a new cast. But to get rid of them all together? I dont see it working. Look at One Tree Hill, yes the show went on 3 more season without the 2 main characters (Lucas and Peyton), but it has done very poorly. The ratings dropped tremendously. I feel it will be the same for Glee, especially when the original cast is truly awesome. Glee wont be the same =(

    Why can't they just follow them to college like Degrassi did! I mean I don't know anyone who will be watching once the origional cast goes. Just keep the origional cast!
