Glee Producers Realise That Firing The Famous Cast Isn’t Too Great An Idea

by | 25th, July 2011

GLEEKS the world over where literally apoplectic with a vague sense of mild irritation when they heard the news that The Famous Ones from Glee were getting fired.

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.

This has seen some impressive back pedalling from the makers of the programme who are now coughing into their hands and saying that this lot will almost certainly appear in future seasons.

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…
