Glee Season 4 Scoop: Who's Returning?

at . Comments

Photos and the first Glee trailer for next week's season three finale have been posted on TV Fanatic, but creator Ryan Murphy delivered some rather major season four scoop today in a Vulture interview:

All William McKinley High School seniors will be graduating... and returning in the fall!

"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  said. "They're all coming back. Anyone who is a regular is coming back. Everyone said yes."

Murphy did add this doesn't mean all characters will appear in all 22 season four episodes.

We'll learn a lot more about the fate of Mercedes, Quinn and company on the finale, which is titled "Goodbye," and then we'll see where everyone is on Thursday nights this fall, according to the new Fox schedule.

I thought the show from start to finish was absolutely sensational. Call me a sucker for love stories, but there's a reason why each season ended the way that it did. People may try to leave comments (just in order to get attention) about how they want well roundedness and equal attention paid to all in what is alleged as an "ensemble cast", but they aren't keeping it real. The FACT is that 99% of the fans are watching scene after scene in the final episode of each season saying to themselves, "yea yea this is all well and good....but show me whats going to happen between Rachael and Finn already". The TRUTH is that in the end people just want to watch the love story...because it's what sells...its what keeps people coming back...and its why the last 15 minutes of every finale is dedicated to it...and RIGHTFULLY so.


I would say I would be disapointedthat they didnt get maeried. Except that the show is not over. They have alot in store. We need somethung to be excited about. Cant be predictable or noone will watch.


I'm disappointed about this. I thought they were going to leave and got all excited about new characters, but now I read this? Of course, I'm gonna miss them, but the thought that Rachel will still be on the show next season makes me wanna... ugh. All I can do is hope that at least they won't center the action around her or Finchel anymore...


-ll probably agree with me. But if not then whatever, I love this show and I will defend it to the ends of the earth.


I absolutley love this show! I am so glad everyone is coming back, it is such a great show. And seriously all of you people on here saying that the show sucks and you will stop watching the show need to stop. The show is good and you need to just get used to the fact that they want to change it up. You guys are just trolling, please go somewhere else with all this hate, because its not appreciated here. I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinions but seriously if you have nothing good to say about the show then just don't say anything. I love Glee and all the characters, the writers are fantastic and are full of great ideas. To me the show can only get better and better from here on out. All of you haters disgust me and I don't care what you say or think of me, because I am just standing up for something that a lot of people like, even me. Especially me. Now please do us gleeks a favor and stop commenting on here. Because like I said its not appreciated. My fellow gleeks will probably agree with me, if not then whatever. But I mean what I say, please stop with the hating.


Will we see Finn and Puck in season 4 at William McKinley High School


Just thought I'd leave a comment here since it doesn't look like any actual FANS of the show are leaving any. I loved the finale.


I was very disappointed with the ending. I want Racheal and Finn to return and yes get married. I waited all season for this and was disappointed. I will not watch or the the next season if they leave the show. They are the real talent!


everynody agrees wit me on this one all i need is brittanys stupidness santanas slams sues insults wills curlyhairness and samcedes! hello people thats all we need! (especially that samcedes thing! just sayin!)


Ok, I was watching the news and they said Rachel, Finn, and Kurt are all too old to be in highschool so they are leaving "Glee"! I think they should get their own show but still have those little ties to "Glee". Like occasionally mention a character or have guest appearances or SOMETHING! Geez.

Glee Quotes

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
