This Can’t Be Happening: Lea, Cory, and Chris Cut From Glee Season 4!

By  | 


Um, we guess we should’ve seen this coming with the news of the impending Glee graduation at the end of the coming season, but somehow we didn’t think our faves leaving the show would be real. Now it just become a whole lot more real with the sad, sad news that Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith will be among three of the gleeks not returning for the fourth season.

Ok, Ryan Murphy, this is going to require some explaining…

Ryan said those three are getting cut because:

“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.”

He also said that “more characters are leaving than are staying” and that we’ll find out exactly who’s in and who’s out on the season premiere on Tuesday, September 20.

Are you going to miss Rachel, Kurt and Finn? How do you hope their storylines end? And which other gleeks do you hope don’t graduate this year? Tell us right here!
