Even when you are celebrating the joy of something new, it’s only understandable that you would do so while simultaneously holding fond memories of the past. When it comes to Cory Monteith, he is definitely feeling this mixture of emotions leading up to a game-changing fourth season of “Glee” — and this is without even knowing for sure just what is going to become of his character Finn Hudson.
Monteith was speaking in a new interview about awards shows with Gold Derby when he was asked the very question about season 4, and he was asked to try and put the transition process in his own words:
“it’s bittersweet, because you never know on a television show who’s gonna be a central part of the storyline and who’s not.”
When it comes to a response to this statement, the best we can say is that Monteith will for sure be a full-time part of the story, as will Lea Michele and Chris Colfer. We’re assuming that Matthew Morrison will also still have a major role at McKinley High, but the fate of just about every other character (at least when it comes to having lengthy roles) is still a little bit unclear. We hope that people like Tina and Artie can start to become leaders in New Directions, and that an extra year of maturity allows Joe, Sugar, and Rory a chance to come a bit more into their own (that is, if all three of them even return).
Monteith will be taking on a new role Tuesday night — mentor on a new episode of “The Glee Project.” We’re going to have a full review of what happens overnight, so be sure and check back for more!
Do you think all of the changes for season 4 will end up making for a much more compelling show?
