Goodbye, McKinley High! The cast of Glee is saying goodbye to Lima, Ohio and saying a permanent hello to New York City--at least for the rest of season 5!
Entertainment Weekly reports:
At a TCA panel Monday afternoon, Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly confirmed plans for the remainder of this season of Glee to be set entirely in New York.
The move has been rumored for a few months, but this marks the first confirmation from the network. Reilly also confirmed once again that next season, the show’s sixth, will be the last for the musical comedy.
When it comes to cast breakdowns for the big New York move, Reilly wasn’t specific, but seemed to own that there would be shakeups. “Some are going to be graduating and moving; creatively, it would be ridiculous that everybody moves to New York,” he said. “There will be some that will graduate and move on and they’ll arc back in when we do special episodes. They’ll always be a part of it… But for this season, there will be a graduation, several of the cast members will move on and a few others will go to New York.”
We think it's a great move! It'll give the show time to focus more on its core characters rather than the McKinley newbies.
What do you think, Instincters? Will Glee taking up permanent NYC residency get you to tune in? Who do you want to see move over to the Big Apple?
