If network television has taught us anything, it's that twenty-year-old actors can play teenagers for upwards of a decade (I'm looking at you, Screech). But that's not so for the kids at McKinley High. Glee creator, Ryan Murphy has announced that three of the show's major cast members will be graduating in the upcoming season, allowing Lea Michele (Rachel), Chris Colfer (Kurt) and Cory Monteith (Finn) to go on to bigger, better and more adult things. According to Murphy:
The thing that I wanted to do and the cast wanted to do, we didn't want to have a show where they were in high school for 8 years. We really wanted it to be true to that experience. We thought it would be really cool if we were true to the timeline."
Rumors are already swirling about a spin-off show starring Michele and Colfer that finds their characters pursuing their musical dreams in New York City. Could this much tamer, much gayer version of Sex and the City really be in the works? We'll have to wait around a couple years to find out.
