Glee has become a television sensation, but that does not mean its big stars will be hanging around McKinley High until they are in their 30’s.
The popular song and dance show is losing three of its main cast members, who will be graduating from the high school-themed show.
Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith will not be returning for season four of the hit Fox series, according to the show’s creator, Ryan Murphy. “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,” Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter. “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.”
