‘Glee’: Final Season Already Taking Shape

Not everyone will be returning, Fox boss confirms


The final season of GLEE is beginning to take shape.

Show creator Ryan Murphy has already pitched the story arc to Fox executives, network chief Kevin Reilly revealed today.

“For the second half of this year, the kids will graduated.  We will go to New York for the second half of the year.  Then he has got some fantastic ideas for what we will do next year for the final year.”

Reilly told members of the Television Critics Association that some of the cast members would be graduating and “moving on” from the show.

“Creatively it would be ridiculous that everyone moves to New York,” he said.  “So there are some that will graduate and move on.  They will arc back in when we do special episodes.  They will always be a part of it.  Then the way it is going to dovetail next season, we will see some familiar faces coming around in some capacity.  But for this season, there will be a graduation, several of the cast members will move on and a few others will move to New York.”

“We are not going to be in Ohio for the rest of the season,” he said.

Reilly also noted that series star Jane Lynch is expected to remain on board through the 2015 finale:

“As long as there is a show, there is Jane.”
