'Glee' Storyline Moving to New York for Remainder of Season 5!

'Glee' Storyline Moving to New York for Remainder of Season 5!

Glee will be making a big switch for the remainder of its fifth season and the storyline will be moving to New York City!

During Fox’s panel at the 2014 Winter TCA Press Tour, Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly said that the second half of the season will be “exclusively” in New York and some of the McKinley High students will graduate this season.

“Some are going to be graduating and moving; creatively, it would be ridiculous that everybody moves to New York,” Kevin said (via THR), but wouldn’t specify which characters will make the move. “There will be some that will graduate and move on and they’ll arc back in when we do special episodes. They’ll always be a part of it. The way it’s going to dovetail next season, we’ll see some familiar faces coming around in some capacity. But for this season, there will be a graduation, several of the cast members will move on and a few others will go to New York.”

Jane Lynch‘s character Sue Sylvester will likely make the move because “as long as there’s a show, there’s Jane,” he said.

It is unclear when exactly the Ohio storyline will be completely wrapped up as we still have the Nationals episode to air and most likely a graduation episode.

WHAT DO YOU THINK of the big changes coming to Glee?

    Well the show has already gone to the dogs so…

    Basically they realized that the new cast members don’t attract the audience like the originals (with the exception of Chord Overstreet and Darren Criss), so they’re trying to focus back on the core cast. Something tells me Chord, Darren, Kevin McHale, and Jenna Ushkowitz’s characters will be heading to New York and the rest of the people will have minor roles.

    Im okay with this, most of the time i zone out during the Mckinley storyline so i think going to all new york scenes will help the show. i will miss a few of the newbies though.

  • Glee Fan

    @marion: I agree. I might miss Kitty and Puckerman’s bro, but I won’t miss Ryder and his hair or Unique. I never really minded Marley, but I don’t think I’ll miss her. She can sing though.

    This is a big middle finger to the “McKinley” cast who will lose their jobs at the end of this season. This smells of a money decision. Fox has seen the rating slip so they need to slim down production costs.

  • Sigh

    As long as I see Santana Lopez I don’t care.

  • Sam

    @Sigh: Pretty much. Snix stay, I stay.

    Jumping the shark?

  • Anna

    I’m sorry, but the show lost it’s core when Cory died. It just feels strange now, not a happy place. Bringing everyone to New York feels a bit pushed, but everything about the show feels pushed now.

  • Lily

    Fox should just cancel the show instead of proceeding to season 6.

  • But

    @Anna: the show lost core way before that. Cory’s death didn’t affect the show that much because they were already wasting Finn. Forcing Blam into our face.

    Now will be the time to applaud Ryan Murphy for making all that McKinley/New Directions stuff suddenly contain no value. Good luck in guaranteeing a fanbase that will continue to talk about this show for the next 15 years.

    RIB. Thought it was a good idea to try and replace original cast members with wanna be’s. People watched the show for the original cast. Want miss the prototypes. Because,I never cared for the new cast in the first place. Now RIB gets the hint. That their rantings are basically none existent. Only watched for Amber Riley anyway. If RIB was smart. Write material consisting of storyline/plot/character development. That actually makes sense. Focus on all original cast member not just the fan fave’s…. People will still talk about ”Glee.” Because,the show had impact it was and still is a phenomenon. And some aspect.

    Fingers crossed that Artie doesn’t make the cut. Probably my least favorite character on the show. But unfortunately he’ll probably be in it since he’s going to film school there.

    I think the reason the show is doing in the reasons is because there have been so many hiatus. I understand taking a break when Corey died but this break has been way too long. I like the mix of McKinley and New York. Rachael is the show. Kurt, sue and Santana are as well as Blaine. With those members still going and the return off brittany i think they can continue to go on strong.

  • Eve

    I’ve seen on another website that Brittany,Mike,Mercedes,Sam,Artie and Blaine would all work at the spotlight diner along with Santana kurt and Rachel and they had there uniform there uniform so I think they will work there along with there pals so yeah
