‘Glee’ season 4: Darren Criss, Heather Morris’ possible graduation date revealed

GleeIs “Glee” going to end season 4 with yet another graduation? There are some notable characters (including Blaine, Tina, Artie, and possibly Brittany if she actually passes this year) that are set to walk across the stage soon and get their diplomas; and while we’re sure that the Fox series will not make as huge of a deal out of it this time, we still now know the last possible date that the graduation ceremony could happen.

Fox announced on Thursday that the season finale for “Glee” is set to air on Thursday, May 9, which is a little bit earlier of an end date than usual. What’s the reason for that? This network, thanks largely to Gordon Ramsay, tends to fare better in summer than some of its rivals, and appears interested in trying to take advantage of the fact that many of these shows tend to be very successful. “Glee,” meanwhile, has become less of a ratings juggernaut as of late in terms of live viewings.

As for some other notable end dates, “American Idol” is set to wrap up its season one week later on May 16, whereas “New Girl” will air its final season 2 episode two days before the “Glee” finale on May 2. In airing some of these finale dates earlier, Fox may also be looking to avoid competition from ABC, CBS, and some of their other competition, as things tend to become a little bit of a logjam in May with shows ending almost around the clock.

Who do you think is going to end up graduating on “Glee” this season, and how in the world do you want to see executive producer Ryan Murphy go about showing it? If you want to hear what Murphy has to say about the future for one Rachel Berry, you can do so over at the link here.
