Ryan Murphy has promised for a while now that many of the Glee characters would graduate at the end of the upcoming third season, but surely he'd come up with a way for Lea Michele to stick around (assisting Mr. Schue, perhaps?) or Chris Colfer to make cameo appearances the following year, right? Nope, he just told THR. Michele, Colfer, and Cory Monteith are "not going to be back at all for Season Four," Murphy said, adding, "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 actors were cool with it, says Murphy: "We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top." As for Monteith, THR says that Murphy "presumes he's aware that Finn will be among those graduating." Well, he surely is now. [THR]
