Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy recently confirmed that we’ll be seeing a new character next season that’s…Christian. While we’ve got more of an inside look into Quinn’s character and her conservative home life this season, the idea for next season is to create an entirely different sort of conservative character:
“We’ve taken a couple jabs at the right wing this year, so what I want to do with this character is have someone who Christian kids and parents can recognize and say, ‘Oh, look — I’m represented there, too!’” he said. “If we’re trying to form a world of inclusiveness, we’ve got to include that point of view as well.”
It’s most likely that this new character will be part of the three new cast members gathered from the online auditions. Kurt’s boyfriend, anyone? Ha.
What do you guys think? Too many characters for Glee? What about including a more Christian viewpoint? I want to hear your thoughts in the comments.
