Will Glee shift to NYC for good midway through Season 5? That had been the most recent rumor, but now a new interview from one of the show's stars is leading us to believe that this won't actually happen this season.
Matthew Morrison (Schue) spoke to Elle about what we can expect from the rest of this season, as he says that Season 5 won't have any dramatic changes in it.
"I don't know what is happening with the show," Matthew admits. "I know this season will finish like a normal Glee season."
"Ryan [Murphy] hasn't told me about next season, but he just kind of said that he has something special planned," Matthew adds. "He likes very high-concept kind of things, so I think that he is going to shake it up a lot with the last season and it is going to be completely something different, leaving the fans on a high note and ending this thing properly."
Hmm. What are we to make of this? It certainly seems like this means that Glee will remain split between McKinley and NYC for the rest of the season. But would that mean that this season's Nationals and graduation won't happen until the very of the season, even though prom has already been held? This seems a little strange.
Then again, it's possible that Ryan and his fellow Glee higher-ups are still making their final decisions about the season and haven't informed Matthew about their latest plans. So we suppose the show could still switch completely to NYC in Season 5, although it seems likely now that it won't happen until Season 6, if it happens at all. We're a little bummed about that, but we're sure Ryan has a method to his madness.
Are you happy that Season 5 will stick to Glee's typical formula? Or were you hoping to see the show entirely in NYC this season?
