Glee Producers Realise That Firing The Famous Cast Isn’t Too Great An Idea
Of course, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith were going to get handed their P45s because, in the name of realism (which the show clearly prides itself on – HA!), their characters were going to have to leave school after graduation.
Then, at some point, everyone started pointing out that no-one would watch Glee if The Famous Ones left.
Co-creator and exec-producer – a man with the impressive monicker of Brad Falchuk – told thousands of Gleeks who dribbled their way through Comic-Con that Rachel, Kurt and Finn “are not done with the show after this season.” Very convenient.
“They’re seniors, they’re graduating, but just because they’re graduating doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show,” Falchuk told fans. This means that you saps will get to see the characters’ post-highschool lives. Rumour has it that they’ll try and hit the big time on Broadway like they’re in Fame! only without the abortions and fights with mucky blokes making porn films…
