Glee Upgrades Five Stars to Series Regular Status

by at . Comments

Four are out. And five are in.

With Fox announcing this week that a quartet of stars will be dropped from series regular status on Glee Season 5, the network has now confirmed that five familiar faces will take over their prominent roles.

The Hollywood Reporter states that Melissa Benoist (Marley), Jacob Artist (Jake), Becca Tobin (Kitty), Blake Jenner (Ryder) and Alex Newell (Unique) have all received promotions. They will be main players on Glee when the series returns on September 19 with new episodes.

Heather Morris (Brittany), Mark Salling (Puck), Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Harry Shum Jr. (Mike) were unsurprisingly demoted a couple days ago, but all will likely show up again in some capacity.

The status of Dianna Agron (Quinn) and Jayma Mays (Emma) are less well known, however, especially with the latter signing on to star opposite Will Arnett in The Millers.

I have said it before and I stand by it these are all pale imitations of the orginals, Marley=Rachel but not nearly as good, Kitty=Quinn, Ryder=Finn, Jake=Puck Wade=Merceddes with a twist, but none of them are as good as the originals not even close. If Kurt, Santana, Rachel and Blaine are in New York this series I can't see the need for Mckinley at all. Brittany is a big loss to the show though massive I think.

Marley, Jake and Ryder are the most uninteresting character on tv. I mean the acotr have done nothing to make them worth watching. The writers keep giving them issue but the actors and the writer can seem to give them a personality.

I am glad for Kitty.
