Ryan Murphy Confirms Details For GLEE's Final Season; Time-Jump, Ohio Return, Series Regulars, Etc.
GLEE mastermind Ryan Murphy has confirmed that the majority of the leading players from the hit FOX musical dramedy series will be returning for the show's final season, as well as sharing a plethora of new details about what viewers can expect, in a new interview.
Series regulars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Chord Overstreet, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Amber Riley, Dot-Marie Jones and Matthew Morrison are all scheduled to appear in the Ohio-focused storyline, which takes place many months after the conclusion of Season Five.
Additionally, recurring guest star Max Adler will have a more pronounced role on the new season, while former series regular Naya Rivera will be showcased in a reduced role.
Reportedly, the plot will focus on Michele's character, Rachel Berry, creating a new Glee club at McKinley High following a humiliating experience headlining a new TV series after her successful Broadway debut last season.
Murphy revealed, "The final season is really its own story and its own location, and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is not New York-centric at all," Murphy said. "It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that ... dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season. .... We'll revisit some of the new kids that came and went. There's a return of the Jane-Matt characters in a big way. It's really interesting, a very sweet, satisfying ending to the story."
GLEE returns for its final season in 2015.
