Psych! Lea Michele, Chris Colfer And Cory Monteith Are Not Out On Glee

Posted on Mon Jul 25, 2011 12:40 PM PDT


Ryan Murphy, you've got some explaining to do.

Just weeks after the Glee co-creator said that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer would be graduating at the end of season three and not return for the fourth, Murphy's fellow executive producer is explaining the exaggerated claims.

cmonteith072511.jpgAt Sunday's Glee Comic-Con panel in San Diego, co-creator Brad Falchuk told the crowd that all three leads are not being let go. Lea, Chris and Cory may be nearing the end of their time as McKinley High students, but that doesn't mean that May 2012 is the last time you'll see the leads.

Falchuk explained:

    “Here’s the exact thing: [Rachel, Kurt and Finn] are seniors, so they’re graduating, but because they’re graduating doesn’t mean they’re leaving the show. If you have Lea Michele under contract, you don’t say, ‘We’re gonna let you go.’”

So where did all the confusion come from? Murphy originally Tweeted the news that the trio would not return for season four. Chris even claims that he was never told directly but rather found out from the Twitter announcement. Awesome way to hear about your job, right?

Further making his point, two week ago Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter:

    "You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year.”

To calm fans down, Falchuk reiterated:

    “It was never our plan or our intention to let them go ... They are not done with the show after this season.”

Rest easy, Gleeks. Your beloved characters aren't going anywhere.

Still, one main character is definitely off the show. Find out who after the jump.
