Ryan Murphy Reveals Would-Be 'Glee' Spinoff Plans

Ryan Murphy has opened up to Deadline about discarded spinoff plans for Glee and explained why he said Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, and Cory Monteith were leaving the show for good after the show’s third season.

“I said, yes, they are graduating and they will not be back on the show for Season Four. And when I did that interview, what was happening was we were asked to investigate doing a spin-off and it was a spin-off specifically for three of them, Chris, Cory and Lea. In March, Brad Falchuk and I started talking to all three of those actors about it because you can’t make people do spin-offs,” Ryan said.

“Maybe we’ll talk about it in April or May, but for now let’s just concentrate on making Season 3 the best that we can do. When I say they’re seniors and they’re not coming back to the show, what I did not say is they’re not coming back to the show because there will be another show,” Ryan said.

Ryan also shared that the original plan was to send cast members to Juilliard in New York City for the spinoff.
