For Glee fans, the news is good even if it isn’t substantial.
At the Television Critics Association Winter Tour, FOX entertainment president said
“We are graduating the characters that are [due] to graduate, and what’s come out of it is [series boss] Ryan [Murphy] and the guys have come up with a really cool idea.
“There will not be a Glee spinoff,” Reilly continued, “but those characters will graduate and it’s led to a very interesting idea that I think is going to really give us something cool to dig into next season.”
He confirmed that Lea Michele will be back and said that contracts have to be reexamined despite the fact that the Glee stars originally all signed long-term deals.
