'Glee' spin-off officially dead

By Jean Bentley

FOX president Kevin Reilly says that the proposed "Glee" spin-off -- which likely would've followed Lea Michele and Chris Colfer's characters graduate McKinley High and try to make it in New York City -- is officially not happening, says FOX president Kevin Reilly.

But that doesn't mean graduating seniors like Michele's Rachel Berry won't be back: Reilly confirms that although her character is graduating, she will be staying on the show. "We are graduating the characters," he says. "Ryan and the guys have come up with a really cool idea. There will not be a 'Glee' spinoff, but I think it will be something cool."

So, there you go: Although the current New Directions seniors are still graduating, they will not be leaving on the show. Want any more details? Too bad. "That's all I can say about it now," Reilly says. "No spin-off, characters graduating, cool season next year."

Any ideas on this "really cool idea"? We honestly can't begin to dream of what they're contemplating.
