With the Glee season finale tonight and the core characters graduating, fans can’t help but wonder who is actually coming back next season. It has been confirmed that Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, and Cory Monteith will be returning for the 4th season of Glee, but what about the rest of the cast?
The McKinley staff is all returning, which includes Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, and Jayma Mays. We’re also told that Heather Morris will be returning as well, and that Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Dianna Agron and Mark Salling, among others are in talks to return – though it has not been specified how long “returning” means.
“It doesn’t mean everyone will be doing 22 episodes, but everyone wants to stay in our family and our world,'” Glee creator Ryan Murphy said in an interview with Vulture. “I wanted to make sure those actors know that if they want to have a home, they have a home. If they want to explore new and different things while also having a home, that is also an option.”
“We had a meeting, and you know we’ve become like a family, and I said to them, ‘Anybody who wants to stay on the show will stay on the show,'” Murphy added.
Also expect to see new big name guest stars next season on Glee including Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson. Hudson’s story arch is said to begin in fall’s season 4 premiere episodes.
We’ll keep you posted as more Glee news surfaces, but rest assured that tonight’s episode will not be the last time you see you’re favorite core cast members!
