Glee Casting Shocker: Who is Leaving?

by at . Comments

Three stars will be departing Glee after this coming season. Correction: the three biggest stars on Glee will departing after this coming season.

In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, creator Ryan Murphy cites the "integrity" of his show's storytelling and confirms that Cory Monteith (Finn), Lea Michele (Rachel) and Chris Colfer (Kurt) will all graduate after season three and not return "at all" after that.

"We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea," Murphy said, adding he's yet to talk to Monteith. "They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top.”

This is simply "true to life," Murphy said.

But what will it mean for one of Fox's highest rated shows? We won't find out until the fall of 2012.

Finn has the worst singing voice of any of the males on that show. Will be interesting to see if Puck gets more "airtime"

Get over it there are so many good voices out there it was getting old anyways it's time for a change watch reruns if u have to. I just want more time spent singing than developing a plot. I love when they do a theme can't wait for the Whitney Houston episode. I'm sure the ones leaving will be seen on broadway or other venues. Get the guy out of the wheelchair and back on his feet. I don't get that he is dancing one minute and wheelchair bound the next. He
Has a great voice and dances well.

I'm really gonna miss finn and Rachel:( they r the 2 biggest stars of glee and I'm sure a lot of people agree. I do like kurt thou he is not one of my faves but he is a great actor and will be missed. I hope the show can make it just the same way without cory and lea.

Cutting those three from the cast would be like cutting Archie Bunker from All in the Family. There would BE no show.
