Glee to Move to New York City Full-Time on Season 5

at . Comments

Fox President Kevin Reilly confirmed yesterday that a big move is in store on Glee Season 5... to The Big Apple!

Following the show's two-week 100th episode celebration (which will feature Gwyneth Paltrow, Chace Crawford and other big names) on March 18 and 25, the series “will go to New York exclusively for the second half” of this season, according to Reilly.

And, yes, this will mean saying goodbye to some Lima, Ohio residents.

“Creatively, it would ridiculous if everybody moves to New York,” said Reilly. “This season, there’s going to be a graduation [from Lima's William McKinley High]. Several of the cast members will move on, and a few others will go to New York.”

What about Jane Lynch's Sue, who would seem to have no NYC connection at all?

“As long as there’s a show, there’s Jane,” Reilly assured viewers.

It's also possible we'll see some non-New Yorkers here and thee when the series airs "special episodes," the executive said, adding: The way it’s going to dovetail next season, we’re going to see some familiar faces coming around in some capacity.

Reilly also confirmed that Season 6 will mark the end for Glee and that creator Ryan Murphy “got some fantastic ideas on what we’re going to next year for the final year.”

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?
