Senior year is quickly coming to a close for a core handful of the New Directions, and with that news comes the inevitable speculation of spin-offs vs. follow-up college scenes smushed into Glee as it is. Thus far, on the table/rumor mill, we've heard of the following spin-offs being discussed:
The Kurt and Rachel Show.
Chris Colfer and/or Lea Michele (Rachel) being the stars of their own show following their new life as theater students in New York is something even Lea would be down for. Now that it’s clear that Rachel’s love for Finn (Cory Monteith) wouldn’t stop her from following her dreams, a post-graduation move to NY makes sense to us. And lord knows Kurt is going to lose his shiz over the veritable gay mecca that is the West Village (sorry, Klaine ‘shippers!). Although, college spin-offs of high school shows have a history of bombing (Saved by the Bell: The College Years, anyone?).
The Kurt and Blaine (and Probably Rachel) Show.
Sure, Blaine’s only a junior, but in TV land, anything is possible. Like, Blaine could transfer (again) to a school in New York and live happily away from his approving parents and near... or with (?) his now-college boyfriend. Rachel would definitely be the third roommate in a Three’s Company sort of scenario... except not. And though Chris Colfer himself admitted that they’d face “tough times,” what with all the gay people in NY (see!), there’s one hopeful silver lining he offered to Klaine ‘shippers: same-sex marriage is legal in New York (should they decide to go down that road one day).
Um, so this one is kind of a curve ball, considering Harry Shum Jr.’s Mike Chang is just now starting to get more screentime on Glee, but all the more reason he could/should get his own spin-off, right? Imagine all that juicy tension created by his developing storyline in Season 3: Asian kid groomed for law/medicine goes off to Julliard to become the world's sexiest, six-packed, formally trained dancer who leaves all the gals swooning, including Katharine McPhee. (Yeah, we just did that.) And in case you’re wondering Harry’s feelings on the matter, he told E! Online not too long ago, “I'm open to pretty much anything at this point."
