Glee creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that some of our favourite characters from the showwill definitely not be returning to Season 4 - and he might not have even told Cory Monteith that he's one of them! Yeesh that would be a hard thing to find out from the news rather than from your boss.
"He knows he was a sophomore when the show started," Ryan told The Hollywood Reporter.
"You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year.”
"More characters are leaving than are staying," he added.
Ryan said that we'll find out who's going to be staying and going when the next season airs on September 20th (in the US no doubt, but we'll keep you posted!) and that Lea Michele and Chris Colfer are fine with being axed.
“We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top.”
Ryan also said that when the show gets to Season 4 the tangled web of love lives and snog sessions will be a lot more straightened out.
“I’m much more interested in Lea’s character -- not so much on her relationship with Finn, he said.
When we were looking for some pictures of Lea and Cory together we stumbled across this little beaut, where Cory looks like an absolute beast and Lea looks like a Polly Pocket! Had to share.
It's all so confusing.
