Glee Creator Assures Fans: Focus on Main Characters, Brittany to Come

at . Comments

While Glee fans are excited about the already-announced casting additions for season two - such as John Stamos as Emma's boyfriend and Charice as a foreign exchange students - some viewers are worried:

Might these new characters take screen time away from our favorites?

No, says creator Ryan Murphy. In the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, he assures us:

"They're really there to support the main characters' stories. John Stamos is always going to be a part of Will's story. The emphasis in the second season is on our original characters even though we're adding a few smaller parts. You're gonna get more backstory on all of these kids."

On one in particular, Murphy says, even though she didn't start the show as a key player.

Look for Heather Morris, as Brittany, to be heavily featured in her own episode.

"I feel an obligation to write more for people we already have that are great," Murphy said.

A Brittany-centric hour of television? That's something we can get behind! Discuss it now in our Glee forum!

Glee Quotes

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
