Glee Season 3 Brings Senior Year and New Characters

3 years ago, by

June 9, 2011

I’m with Glee co-writer Ian Brennan, I always have trouble figuring out which characters are in what grades, too. But one thing’s for sure, this coming season (3) will be the final senior year for some of our beloved New Directions kids at McKinley.

Which of course means eventual heartfelt and tearful goodbyes…but it also means that we’ll be getting some more new characters introduced. And with the success of Chord Overstreet as Sam, Darren Criss as Blaine, and Ashley Fink as Lauren Zizes, you can bet while it will be weird, it should be something to look forward to.

“According to some fresh casting intel, producers are adding a new recurring female character described as ‘Adele meets Susan Boyle.’ In addition to being a great singer, interested actresses must be at least 18 years old but look like they’re in high school.”

Our “Adele meets Susan Boyle” will be only one of two new female characters though. The other we know will be a beautiful someone who can sing “all kinds of music”, named Rebecca. It sounds as if at least one of these female characters will be found via the new reality show, The Glee Project, based on the Digital Spy video interview with Ian Brennan below as he talks about season 3:

And…Sue Sylvester will apparently run for Congress. As Ian says, “‘Nuff said.”

Let’s hear your thoughts on the characters, and what’s coming up in season 3, in the comments!

    i just don’t feel as if all the original characters are done… 3 seasons isn’t enough with the characters whom we all have come to know and love

  • Jo

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOO if the glee cast leave the show will not be as good i will never watch the show with a new cast i love them & we gleeks relate to them not to some new bunch of actors add them to the show that’s cool but don’t change the cast DONT !!

    I love Glee, however, it’s still a fairly new show. Loosing a number of fan favorite characters might just put the proverbial nail in the coffin.

  • Mae_aira13

    i dont want them garduating!!!

  • Charlie-becks

    I don’t mind them graduating if the show carries on following at least some of their lives, i’d be devestated if Chris Colfer and Darren Criss arn’t in the show anymore! I love the cast of Glee but Sam never really grew on me, he’s a good character but i felt like he was intruding on the dynamics! I can’t wait for this season, hoping for more Rachael/Kurt duets or Kurt/Blaine, Santana/Britany duets amazing singers!

  • UK, GLEEK

    Sam, Lauren and Sunshine (Charice) are not graduating so we may see Sunshine singing for McKinley next season. But as for those graduating the list consists of Finn, Racheal, Quinn, Santana, Brittney, Puk, Tina, Mike-Chang, Mercedes, Kurt and last of all Blaine will be graduating from Dalton Academy and linking with Blaine i would love to see him transfer to McKinley even though i know that is very unlikely. But as the statement shows we can be looking forward to a more or less complete re-vamp of the McKinley High New Directions which should welcome i believe some brand new talent and hey if they have Mike-Chang at the minute who can only dance i would be looking forward to someone new in the group who cant really sing but may have hidden talents (hey this isnt a rumour dont go blabing, its just this guys opinion)

    I think if they change glee to fast then no one will watch it. But if they keep adding new characters then it will still be a great show just a different one. The will still have gret romances and stuff but again they will be different. The production company has planed of the cast changing every couple of seasons because if they have like 9 seasons of glee then the characters will be too old to continue. So i think they have to keep the show cool. And stop complaining just be glad the are still making glee even if the characters are changing!

    I have no problem with some of the cast graduating this year, it makes it more realistic, but they need to do it properly.  Slowly start bringing in the new cast members so that we have time to get adjusted to them before the original members are gone.  It seems to me that they should have made Kurt younger.  I’ve hear rumours that Blaine will be still be on after this season, which makes no sense – am I really supposed to believe that Kurt is older then Blaine?  Yeah right.

  • iluvglee

    they have waited 3 seasons canthe not keep them and i KNOW!!!! that the yhave planned on changin the but still its not as if any of them look over 30 and it would not be the same without lea SO THERE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LKeet04

    I think either Lindsay or Marissa (their for The Glee Project – the other Glee show if you haven’t heard of) can play the role of Rebecca. #justsayin

  • LKeet04

    **they’re from

  • LKeet04

    it’d be cool if they do that.. They should create spin-offs – A LOT OF SPIN-OFFS.

  • Fuzzroc

    Blaine will transfer. They announced he’s joining McKinley’s Glee club on the tour.

  • Ronell31

  • Alexa
