Glee star Kevin McHale is getting candid about the show’s cancellation in a new interview.
The 26-year-old actor was asked if his character Artie would ever get a spinoff. “Towards the end, there weren’t that many people watching Glee,” he told The Huffington Post. “So I don’t know how many people would then watch a spinoff. We’re off the air for a reason.”
Kevin also said that he thinks the show jumped the shark when they lost one of the show’s stars.
“I will say, not to bring it down or anything, when Cory Monteith died. I don’t think the show ever came back from that,” Kevin said. “It wasn’t for a lack of trying, but the story was going in one direction with his character [Finn Hudson] and he was one of two main characters of the show.”
“I think after that the vibe on set was different,” he added. “It was just weird for us being there never mind actually having to be filming. Being one of the writers in that sort of situation — I wouldn’t have known what I would have done because I was like, ‘I don’t really even want to be here.’”
