Glee Season 3 to Focus on "Character, Character, Character"

at . Comments

It sounds like Ryan Murphy has heard the complaints.

With fans upset over the lack of storyline direction and character direction on season two, the Glee creator has hired a new writing staff - and also promised to make changes.

"Season 2 was definitely about bigger, better, flashier. And I loved so much about Season 2," Murphy tells Michael Slezak. "But Season 3 we decided is going to be character, character, character... we’re not going to have any guest stars. And we’re going to do fewer songs.”

Among other promising spoilers revealed by Murphy (read the full interview at TV Line):

  • There will be "amazing" stories for Mercedes, Tina and Mike.
  • Sue Sylvester will get a love interest and a "20-episode arc" that will have her... run for Congress!
  • It's unknown at this time of Blaine, Sam and Lauren will all be returning.
  • He remained steadfast that characters will graduate in the spring, but seemed open to the idea of a spin-off.

What do you think of these tidbits and answers, Gleeks? Do they give you hope for season three?

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?
