Congratulations, you guessed right; Kurt, Rachel and Finn will appear in future episodes of Glee, announced executive producer Brad Falchuk at Comic-Con on Sunday. In fact, he also said that the three all remain under contract.
Since it was announced in June that Falchuk intended for the characters to follow the natural progression of their roles, in other words graduate, fans have been sorry to see three of the biggest “Glee” stars, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith, leave the show for good. Say it isn’t so! Well, it’s not.
“They’re seniors, they’re graduating, but just because they’re graduating doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show,” Falchuk said. USA Today said that the first episode of Season 3 will feature a discussion amongst the “Glee” characters, which will reveal who is a senior and who is a junior and what their future dreams are. It has already been announced that Tina, played by Jenna Ushkowitz, is a junior.
The season will also be split into two semesters and new relationships will develop. According to USA Today, Mercedes will have a boyfriend and Kurt and Blaine will continue their relationship. “They’re [Kurt and Blaine] solid,” Falchuk said.
Other new things for next season also include Sue Sylvester running for Congress. Falchuk also confirmed that Chord Overstreet, who played Sam, will not be returning at all to “Glee.” “He decided he would have opportunities elsewhere that he would like to pursue, and we can’t force him to work. We told him to go with god,” Falchuk said.Tags: Blaine, Brad Falchuk, Chord Overstreet, Chris Colfer, Comic-Con 2011, Congress, Cory Monteith, Finn, Glee, Graduation, Jenna Ushkowitz, Kurt, Lea Michele, Mercedes, Rachel, Sam, Sue Sylvester, Tina, USA Today
