'Glee' won't last forever for some stars

Get ready for a Gleek graduation.

In an interview with an Australian publication, show co-creator Ryan Murphy revealed that the show's stars will age out of McKinley High– just like in an actual high school.

"Every year we’re going to populate a new group," Murphy told News.com.au. "There's nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot.”

New characters like football player Sam Evans will be part of the new crop of students, and Murphy said he anticipates students like Rachel, Finn and Quinn to graduate at the end of the 2012 season.

"I was concerned about that (whether to have characters graduate and leave the show) because those kids caught on so quickly – but I think one of the things I'm very happy we’ve been able to do this year is we’ve brought in new characters,” Murphy said.

"I think if you can keep regenerating...and I didn’t think we could," he added. "I didn’t know if people would want those characters (like Sam), but they do."

    I do not even understand how I stopped up here, however I thought this submit used to be great. I don't recognise who you're but definitely you're going to a well-known blogger in case you are not already. Cheers!

    Glee is like the musical version of Degrassi, and that's been going on for a long time. If you keep the drama up then people will watch, especially middle and high school students looking to these shows for amusement and guidance.

    lol @cheefsfury

    It's an ok show. I just find all of the adult charaters, except Sue, insanely annoying.

    Abe needs to be honest and come out of the closet. Those who gay bash are gay themselves. You're so ashamed you won't even spell the word correctly.

    By calling Glee liberal you insult those who call themselves liberal. The show is just f'ing ghey.

    Glee is a very liberal and very retarded show, though that is redundant.

      Help is available; mental illness is nothing to be embarrassed about.
