"Season 4 is going to be a whole different show. It's going to be something a lot different than what people saw. It's still very much the same show, the same formula that I think has found viewership, it's just going to be a little bit of a shakeup. Ryan and the creators have come up with a really cool way to incorporate a lot of graduates-- [they] can still be a part of the show but not change the entire paradigm of the series."
It's since been confirmed one hundred percent that Lea Michele and Cory Monteith will definitely be returning as Rachel and Finn next Glee season - followed by Chris Colfer who will return as Kurt - despite graduating from McKinley High. Mum's the word about the specifics of their new storyline in season 3, except that it's going to be "groundbreaking", "revolutionary", and "different":
Cory (Finn) did have something new to say on the subject, though. Let's just say, he's "pumped":
“I’m really excited,” he tells TVLine. “I think that the idea they came up with, Ryan Murphy specifically, to incorporate the people who are graduating and still keep the paradigm of the McKinley High School active is great. It’s still very much the show that people know and love, but incorporates people who aren’t at the school anymore. I think it’s going to be very interesting to see how it all develops and I’m really excited about it.”
Chris Colfer (Kurt) shared his own perspective on the path Glee will be taking with its graduates in season 4, in his usual mysterious manner of spoiling-while-not-spoiling:
"I think the show is going down this path, and there were options A and B they could've gone [down], but now they're combining," Colfer teased mysteriously.
Meanwhile, we're still immersed in Glee season 3, which still has some spoiler surprises in store for us too:
- The Glee Project co-winner, Sam Larsen will have his debut episode soon (bet you were wondering where he was, weren't you). The episode in question is "Heart", the Valentine's episode airing February 14. Cory Monteith (Finn) confirmed and elaborated on Sam's upcoming storyline:
"His is a very interesting role and it ties into a lot of preexisting storylines. It feels very natural. It's a smart way to bring him into the show. I hear he's very talented."
No word yet on if it will indeed be as a rockin' relative of Puck, but we shall soon see.
- Artie goes looking for some "Sugar". Well, we saw the beginnings of that in "Yes/No" after the whole Becky thing, and Kevin McHale (Artie) says they'll take the idea even further - and that surprisingly enough, he won't be the only one after her:
"He may have to battle for her with someone else."
Any thoughts on who?
- Glee will be taking on...the Bee Gees! Well, if showrunner Ryan Murphy has anything to do with it - which he does!
“We’ve never done disco on the show, but I’m interested in the genius of The Bee Gees,” executive producer Ryan Murphy told TV Guide Magazine. This installment of the hit Fox musical will honor the soundtrack to the 1977 John Travolta flick — and may even include a cameo from the movie star himself. Murphy explains that Travolta and Cory Monteith are real-life pals, “So maybe we’ll have them dance in a Finn dream sequence.”
So now that we're officially swimming in Glee spoilers (in "sexy", synchronized style), which ones excite you the most? What twist do you think Ryan and co. have mapped out for season 4? Hit the comments!
