There is some pretty interesting news breaking within the world of “Glee” at the moment, namely when it comes to the question as to whether or not we’re going to see everyone jump on over to New York City after their time at McKinley High.
Speaking at Fox’s TCA panel today, network head Kevin Reilly addressed a great deal of the gossip when it comes to the future of the musical show by saying that after graduation does happen with the characters at the school, we will see many of the characters make the move over to New York, and that is where the show will be set for at least the rest of the season. While no one is 100% confirmed to be making the move, some leading candidates include Blaine (Darren Criss), Sam (Chord Overstreet), and Artie (Kevin McHale), at least based on the fact that they all have some established ties now to the Big Apple.
What is very interesting to us at least is Reilly’s claim that so long as there is a “Glee,” Jane Lynch will have some sort of a job. What does it mean? It’s possible that we could see the cheerleading coach take off to the Big Apple herself, or that the show finds some other way to incorporate her into the story. Personally, we have a hard time figuring out whether or not we need to keep seeing characters like Sue or Matthew Morrison’s Will. They are both great performers, but there does come a time where your past does become your past. As this point, it feels a little more like “Glee” is coming closer to that time, and the show would be able to push forward even if there was no appearance from Sue Sylvester the rest of the way.
Are you happy to see the move to New York be pretty permanent for a good chunk of the last season and a half of “Glee”? Let us know your thoughts below.
