Lea Michele & Chris Colfer Not Returning for 'Glee' Season 4

Lea Michele & Chris Colfer Not Returning for 'Glee' Season 4

Get ready to say goodbye to Rachel, Kurt, and Finn.

Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, and Cory Monteith will not be returning for the fourth season of Glee, according to the show’s creator Ryan Murphy.

“[They are] not going to be back at all for Season 4,” Ryan told 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.”

While Ryan has previously mentioned that cast members would be graduating at the end of next season, these are the first cast members officially not returning.

While Chord Overstreet was not made a series regular for the third season, he is still welcome on the show and could possibly be bumped to a regular for season four.

ARE YOU SAD to see Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, and Cory Monteith leave Glee?

    Ryan Murphy thinks he’s like Speilberg or something. Season 1 was the prime of the show – it hasn’t been better and it won’t get better than season 1. All the messages, lessons, issues, and showy episodes season 2 produced was such a waste. Season 2 was horrible and now season 4 is going to suck. So thanks Ryan Murphy.

    They are three of the best! I can’t believe they’re not coming back! This sucks! I love Rachel, she reminds me so much of me with her drive and will. I love Kurt too and Finn. I’m not sure how good the show will be out without them! I have a feeling that this is only the beginning. I’m sure before summer’s end it will be revealed that Santana, Brittany, Mercedes, Puck, Artie, Quinn and Tina won’t be returning either. I hope that’s not the case but we’ll see.

    Seeing them leave going to be really hard Finn was one of my tabs and Kurt was the reason I was ok with comming out with my sexuality and Rachel was the person that kinda got me more into singing. But anyone who doesn’t miss these people just dissent get what it’s like to be like me!

    Tegan Says:

    Everyone thinks its stupid to get rid of the 3 favourite characters & I agree & will miss them loads but if you don’t get rid of the main favourites when the newbies come in no one will like them cos they are still hung up on Rachel, Finn or Kurt, so if you get rid of the favourites you have to get a new favourite. So I think that Ryan is hoping that peoples new favourites will be the new characters.
    After all wasn’t Glee created to showcase average peoples incredible music talents? So give more people the chance.
    But I am going to sincerely miss Rachel’s drama & hilarious facial expressions, Finn’s gorgeous smile that makes me melt, & Kurt’s everything! ♥
