Now that the graduating class of McKinley High has said their big goodbye following Tuesday's season finale, fans might be wondering what will go down in season four. It seems that much of the cast will be dispersing across the country to pursue lives outside of the New Directions, while others stay behind to finish high school.
When MTV News caught up with the cast recently, Lea Michele explained that season four's "show-within-a-show" format will allow them to expand on the plots already introduced while also allowing new plots to breathe life into the series.
"You basically have the kids who have graduated and their story lines, as well as the kids back in high school," she said. "I think it'll be really great because it gives us the opportunity for the characters who have been on the show for a while to move on and to start new story lines, but then the kids who are newer on the show will get to continue on."
"I think it'll add more to the show," Chris Colfer added, noting that with guest stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson signed on to make cameos, fans should expect a lot of "awesomeness."
So is Michele equally excited by the prospect of chilling with the two fashionable A-listers on set? "They're the best," she gushed. "It's really cool."
Michele and Colfer are hardly the only two characters returning to "Glee." Show creator Ryan Murphy confirmed that everyone will be back for more. And, Darren Criss notes, it could mean some drama for Blaine and Kurt. "I think people got hung up on the idea that it's over, which it's not at all," he said. "It's just another departure point. When you graduated high school it's not the end of the world."
"[Blaine]'s going to be a senior. I'm curious to see where his journey takes him," Criss added. "Him and Kurt seem to be pretty strong, but Chris [Colfer] and I liked a little drama, so we like things being shook up maybe for more than one episode. So, I don't know. We'll see. I'm just happy to be invited to the party."
