Glee without Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) would be almost as tragic as pizza without cheese. We can't imagine the show sans everyone's favorite diva, but let's be real. Rachel is all grown up! Girlfriend has moved away from McKinley High and is living the fab life in New York City... what if she doesn't have time to spontaneously break out into song like the good ol' days?
Well, fear not, tender-hearted Gleeks! Rachel Berry isn't about to leave Ryan Murphy's nest any time soon. In fact, she's already signed on for season 5, and her storyline is going to be a huge part of next year's drama-rama — especially as the show continues to take place in New York City.
"You'll still get to see both locations because I'm still going to be on the show and so are the kids that are in high school," Lea tells The Hollywood Reporter. "But who knows what the whole year will be or what the show will morph into throughout the year. It will be very exciting — and I'm not going anywhere!"
Now, we should note that Glee hasn't officially been renewed yet, but all signs point towards it happening soon. Phew, time to breath a huge sigh of relief! Glee just wouldn't be the same without Rachel whipping her bangs back and forth, hooking up with possible drug dealers, and accidentally getting pregnant, so thank goodness she's sticking around for season 5 — it's going to be unmissable!
