On May 15, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, and others involved with the show spoke about how the next season of Glee will include storylines that include what is happening at McKinley High as well as what is happening in New York City.
Apparently, two diverse destinations will fill the same small screen.
According to Fox’s Kevin Reilly, certain graduates will hit the City That Never Sleeps, while the kids back in high school will struggle with their every day life as they sing their way through each dramatic moment.
Reilly called the next season of Glee, “two shows within a show.”
Now that’s a novel idea, but which veteran actors will go back East? Will Lea Michele be joined by Cory Monteith so the two can stay together?
Michele says that is up in the air because the story of Finn and Rachel’s relationship takes a turn that turns into a cliffhanger at the end of this season, giving their storyline for next year completely open for anything to happen.
Meanwhile, Chris Colfer’s Kurt will not enjoy a cliffhanger with his love, Blaine (played by Darren Criss). Rather, as Colfer puts it, “They are going to zig and zag.”
How’s that for confusing?
And so, as Lea Michele and Chris Colfer confer about what will and will not be happening on Glee for season four, Michele is excited for her chance to work with Kate Hudson come fall.
She says, “I’ve loved her since Almost Famous. I think she’s one of the best comedic actresses… What [Glee's producer] has in store for she and I is so exciting.”
So, as Lea Michele looks forward to the excitement and Chris Colfer looks forward to taking some lefts and rights for his role in Glee, all fans everywhere are sure to be eager for a new, action-packed season four of their favorite Fox musical. Stay tuned.
