Yesterday afternoon, FOX confirmed that a Glee Spin-Off was no longer in the works at the network. News of a spin-off had first begun to circulate when Darren Criss joined the cast. The idea was initially to have a Warbler-based show but plans were soon derailed and reassessed with co-creator Ryan Murphy made noise regarding the future of three of the show’s cast mates.
Lea Michele, Corey Monteith and Chris Colfer were blindsided by the news that Ryan had decided to graduate the three of them at the end of season three and there was no decision on whether or not they would continue on the show. Following this, rumors began to fly in Hollywood that Ryan was sharing with many people that the three could possibly front a spin-off as to keep the three lead actors on the network.
Ryan’s partner in crime, Brad Falchuk spoke at Comic-Con in July of last year and stated that the trio of actors listed above weren’t leaving the show at all. So what is the final verdict? It looks like Ryan Murphy along with FOX have finally set the record straight about the future of the show and it’s characters. Find out the situation below.
