A new announcement from Glee creator Ryan Murphy brings exciting news for Season 4. While many characters graduated and took their exit from the New Directions choir room during the season finale, it would appear that everyone will be returning this fall. While Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are likely to be seen in most, if not all, episodes, Chris Colfer, Naya Rivera, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, and Harry Shum Jr will be making appearances as well, showing their lives post-graduation.
Along with Jenna Ushkowitz, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, Darren Criss, Matthew Morrison, Jayma Mays, and Jane Lynch (who are all set to return as well), Chord Overstreet has been promoted to a series regular. Add into that three new series regulars and it’s looking like things might be getting a bit crowded.
In contrast, in a recent podcast interview with Gold Derby, Murphy stated that they were “cutting back on the number of characters… After three seasons of a lot of those choir room scenes with 18 people, it became a bit much.”
That being said, it will be interesting to see how Glee will tackle all the storylines of the new and current New Directions members, as well as the ongoing storylines of the graduated cast. How is Mercedes doing in LA? Will Kurt ever make it to New York? Will Puck ever get out of Lima? Do we get to see Will and Emma’s wedding?
What do you think? What are some of the most pressing questions Glee still needs to answer? Let us know in the comments!
