The move has been rumored for a few months, but this marks the first time Fox has confirmed it. Ding-dong, the choir room’s dead!
SPOILER ALERT: THR is reporting that the alumni-heavy 100th episode of ‘Glee’ will see the disbanding of the New Directions at the hands of Sue.
The Fox musical will then do several consecutive episodes set in New York City, centering on Rachel (Lea Michele), Blaine (Darren Criss), Kurt (Chris Colfer), Sam (Chord Overstreet) and Mercedes (Amber Riley) and potentially other co-stars.
Sources tell THR that executive producers including Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk andIan Brennan are still crafting the rest of season five and it’s unclear what will happen to New Directions’ current roster.
Making the show just about New York is 100% the right move.
Lots of scheduling changes at Fox. ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ will follow ‘New Girl’ in February as well, ‘Mindy will return in April. New series ‘Rake’ will air after ‘Idol’ on Thursdays.
Ryan Murphy’s buzzed about FX series is available in its entirety on DVD for 71% off the $198.70 list price until 3:20 ET today.
First Look: ‘Glee' as puppets | EW
Um, did any character ever say this season what happened to Sugar Motta?
Like, last we saw her at the wedding proposal and now she no longer exists in the middle of a school year. DID SHE EVER EXIST. What if Sugar Motta was just a giant mass hallucination?
'Glee's wanton disregard of continuity is one of its strongest assets.
Plus, the actress recorded a song about Cory Monteith for her debut album.
But Kurt may be going to Russia? I don’t know.
'Glee' planning puppets number? | @MrRPMurphy
“The whole [last] year of the show — which will be next year — was really designed around Rachel-Cory/Finn story. I always knew that. I always knew how it would end,” he told reporters before a Paley Center event honoring the FX network Wednesday night in Los Angeles. “I knew what the last shot was — he was in it. I knew what the last line was; she said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do.”
Murphy said he thinks he has “a good idea” of what his adjusted end game will look like and plans to pitch it to the studio and network this month. “I think it’s very satisfactory and kind of in his honor, which I love,” he said of the new idea.
danhacker asked: What are your thoughts on Dianna Agron not making an appearance in the Cory Monteith Glee tribute episode (because supposedly) Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy don't like her. Her character was an important part of Finn's life in the Glee narrative. Weird not to include her.
It’s not fair to speculate on rumored backstage drama, but if that’s the case, it’s pretty petty and definitely disappointing.
Putting that bit of drama aside, I think that it’s silly overall that she’s not appearing in the episode. As yes, I agree the characters were important to each other and they’re bringing back many other graduated castmates. If the characters of ‘Glee’ existed in the real world, I would think Quinn would be there. Though ‘Glee’ has never been one for realism.
Then again, I haven’t seen the episode, so perhaps her absence is justified by the stories they’re going to tell tonight.
UPDATE: Those rumors may not be true, Agron may have just had scheduling conflicts.
