Could GLEE Be Going To NYC Full-Time?! Maybe... Even As Soon As This Season!
Coming as another result of the tragic real-life turn of events that left the hit series without one of its main stars just prior to shooting beginning on the new season, earlier today TVLine revealed that FOX's hit musical dramedy series Glee may be shifting its focus full-time to the portion of the story centered in New York City tracing the trajectories of the characters portrayed by headliners Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Naya Rivera sometime in the very near future - perhaps even during this recently just-begun new season.
The fifth season of the series has seen continuing strong viewership numbers three episodes in - with the recent Cory Monteith tribute episode soundtrack even making the iTunes and Billboard top ten, as well - and the series remains FOX's top-rated scripted series five years into its run, yet it was also officially announced earlier this month that next season will most likely be the end of the series.
So, will the entire Season Six reside in the place that foundered so many dreams of the McKinley High-bred Broadway babies populating the performing arts-centric show? To quote a famous musical theatre anthem popularized on the series Once Upon a Time by Darren Criss, WEST SIDE STORY's "Something's Coming" - a track that had its world premiere on this very site, as a matter of fact (here)- "could be, who knows?"

So, would you like to see Glee maintain a primary focus on the NYC storyline and leave Lima, OH, behind once and for all? Furthermore, who would you like to see from the McKinley High New Directions make the journey to the Big Apple? Plus, what about Sue Sylvester?!
