Our hearts broke when Glee's co-creator and exec producer Ryan Murphy previously said Lea Michele, Cory Monteith, and Chris Colfer won't return in season 4 after they graduate in the third one. But at the recent Comic-Con, Glee co-creator and exec producer Brad Falchuk said, "Just because they're graduating, doesn't mean they are leaving the show."
Brad added, "It is not our intention to let them go... They are not done with the show." So which is which? Personally, we’re on Team Brad! It’d be fun to see glimpses of Rachel, Finn, and Kurt post-McKinley, especially since Brad said the exec producers are "leaning against" a possible spin-off about Rachel and Kurt.
As for Chord Overstreet, Brad confirmed that he’s not coming back in season 3. "We did invite (Chord) back for a portion of the season… to see if being a regular was a possibility. But he declined the offer, which we were really disappointed by... He decided he would have opportunities elsewhere that he would like to pursue, and we can’t force him to work, so we wished him well."
