Update: Glee producer Brad Falchuk tells TV Line that he thinks Karofsky's story has been wrapped up nicely on Glee, and that there are currently no plans to bring him back in Season 4.

Not long ago, we compiled a rundown of what to expect for practically every character come September on Glee Season 4. However, more than a few readers pointed out one face missing from our gallery: Dave Karofsky (Max Adler).

While details about the fate of most of the Glee characters next season have already started to emerge, it’s been noticeably quiet on the Karofsky front.

So is Dave — who was last seen making a hospital recovery after that heartbreaking suicide attempted in Season 3 — even coming back at all?

Nothing seems to be in the works quite yet. When a fan tweeted on July 24 to ask if Max would be back, the actor responded, “haven't heard a peep from them...no clue :(

Of course, Glee often works only a few scripts ahead of time, so all this really means is that Karofsky won’t show up for Episode 1 or 2.

In the meantime, Max seems to be taking full advantage of the summer. He and girlfriend Jennifer Bronstein are on vacation in Italy! Max tweeted on July 24, “In Italy with my gf, about to head to dinner!

Sounds like an amazing trip. We just hope Max gets to make his way back to Glee‘s fictional world of Lima, Ohio, sometime this season, too.
