Where will the kids from McKinley High end up
The Hollywood Reporter
Could Rachel meet a familiar face on the East Coast when the fourth season of
"Glee" returns in the fall? What will happen to Brittany
and Santana's relationship now that the poor class president has to stay behind
and repeat her senior year at McKinley?
The "Glee" Season 3 finale confirmed that Rachel (Lea Michele) is headed east with
Finn (Cory Monteith) enlisting in the Army
and going his own way, while Brittany (Heather Morris) with her 0.0 GPA is stuck at
McKinley to repeat her senior year as her girlfriend Santana (Naya Rivera) was given the support
and cash to follow her dreams of stardom.
The Hollywood Reporter turned to stars Michele, Rivera and Kevin McHale (Artie) to answer some of the many
burning questions facing the series as it prepares for its fourth season with
stories set in New York and Ohio.
How many episodes will everyone be doing? All 15 cast members are confirmed
to return in some capacity, while it's still unclear just how many episodes the
swelling ensemble cast will appear in. Michele, who notes she's more excited
about Glee's fourth season than any previous edition of the series, confirms her
role as a series regular and that she'll be doing every episode next season.
"I've spoken with Ryan and I know my character's entire arc for the whole
season, and it's incredibly exciting," she enthuses. Rivera notes she'll be "a
big part" of Season 4, and McHale says Artie will be around "quite a bit."
Rachel and Finn parted ways literally and figuratively at the end of Season
3. Is there hope for the couple? "Anything is possible. I think it's exciting to
see them apart. But you never know with 'Glee' what's going to happen," Michele
teases. "The stuff happening next year is really exciting. When I sit down and
talk with [executive producer Ryan Murphy] about story lines for next year,
they're so exciting and so different."
Now that Santana has her mother's blessing (and cash!), will she follow
through and ditch a cheerleading scholarship at the University of Louisville and
head to the Big Apple? Michele certainly hopes that's the case.
