“No spinoff, characters graduating, cool season next year.”
That is how Fox boss Kevin Reilly sums up the future plan for Glee, which he said will not be shuttling several characters off to a New York-based spin-off.
“Here’s whats going on with Glee,” Reilly told the press at the Television Critics Association winter tour on Sunday. “We are graduating the characters that are [due] to graduate, and what’s come out of it is Ryan [Murphy] and the guys have come up with a really cool idea.
“There will not be a Glee spinoff, but those characters will graduate and it’s led to a very interesting idea that I think is gonna really give us something cool to dig into next season.”
Reilly offered no further details, other than to confirm that “graduating” cast members such as Lea Michele will remain with the show going into Season 4 next fall.
