During the Glee panel at San Diego Comic Con of this year, the writing crew reported that Glee Project season 1 co-winner Damian McGinty would not be back as Rory Flanagan in season 4, at least not as a series regular. Aw, but we love Damian! (And as if to confirm, "Blue Christmas" just started playing during my Glee music shuffle.)
Ryan Murhpy & Co. did leave it open for Damian to "maybe return" in the future, though - and wouldn't you know it, Glee creator Ryan Murphy is giving us a present just in time for the holidays.
When a fan tweeted on August 31 [sic], “@MrRPMurphy would Damien still be in glee?” Ryan responded, “Yes. Wait for Thanksgiving.”
It's also been said that other graduated seniors, including Dianna Agron (Quinn), may be coming back around Thanksgiving time.
Who's excited for Damian to come back? Holler in the comments!
