There is no denying that "Glee" is one of the hottest shows and everyone wants to be on it, including celebrities. The show takes place in high school, which brings up the inevitable question…will the cast stay in school forever or will the show follow them on to college or will there be new Glee kids altogether?
Well, according to a recent interview with "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy, we will eventually be getting a new set of kids at McKinley High. The show has already started easing in the new class with Chord Overstreet, who plays "Sam" and is a year younger than most of the other characters.
"Every year we're going to populate a new group," Murphy says. "There's nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot." Murphy has nominated the end of the 2012 season of Glee as the likely time for cast exits.
"I think you have to be true to the fact that here is a group of people who come and go in these teachers' lives – they graduate and they're gone," Murphy says. "When some of them finish their run at high school it will be very teary episodes. For me it will be particularly tough but a new crop (of actors) will come in."
Murphy says that he discussed ';graduating' core cast with Glee co-executive producer Ian Brennan and Brad Falchuk.
"I was concerned about that (whether to have characters graduate and leave the show) because those kids caught on so quickly – but I think one of the things I'm very happy we've been able to do this years is we've brought in new characters."
"I think if you can keep regenerating – and I didn't think we could – I didn't know if people would want those characters (like Sam) but they do."
"Glee" has made big stars out of its cast, so we doubt that Cory, Lea, Dianna, etc will have problems landing new jobs.
Are you sad that your favorite "Glee" characters will eventually be replaced?
