If you liked Glee boss, Ryan Murphy’s recent idea of moving Glee to New York City full-time, then you’ll love the latest: Ryan Murphy & Co. are thinking about moving Kurt to Russia.
E! Online reports that Glee creators, Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk, and Ian Brennan are considering a few different ideas for the direction of the series into season 6 (and maybe-possibly beyond) post-Cory Monteith.
The Fox hit is considering moving a major storyline — and its most notable gay character — to Russia for the sixth and (presumably) final season, according to multiple insiders who work on the show. “We are mulling around the idea of moving Kurt (Chris Colfer) to Russia,” says one source, adding that creator Ryan Murphy and his production team are entertaining three possible ideas for the final year. One is to move the series’ storyline solely to New York City. Another is to move Kurt to Russia. And another remains to be seen, but could possibly include McKinley High (the series’ original home).
A recently enacted Russian law outlaws “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations among minors,” sparking protest within the LGBT community. Kurt recently got engaged to his on-off boyfriend Blaine (Darren Criss) in one of TV’s most elaborate engagement scenes, a storyline that was prompted in part by the Defense of Marriage Act ruling.
That still fails to explain why we’re moving Kurt to Russia. FOX must be kind of confused too because the network has no comment at the moment about a possible storyline involving Chris Colfer’s Kurt moving to Russia, or any of the others. But Ryan, Brad, and Ian still have yet to come to a final decision on the series, so maybe there’s hope we’ll continue to see Kurt in New York in Glee‘s season 6?
What do you think about the idea of seeing Kurt in Russia? Should Blaine go with him, if he does?
