The hit show's creator, Ryan Murphy, recently revealed to the Hollywood Reporter Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith will not be returning for Glee's 4th season.

These guys are the heart of the series, and we can't imagine Glee without them. But Murphy has a more realistic view of his characters, and wants to see them grow up and on from the Glee.

Murphy tells THR:

    "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."

The Golden Globe winner also assures fans that Chris and Lea, "thought that was a good idea to go out while they were on top."

Is this the beginning of the end for Glee?
