Recent news that Glee was cutting major players from its cast after season 3 had many Gleeks freaking out. But it seems the hysteria may have been a little premature.
"They are not done with the show after this season," Falchuk confirmed at Comic-Con. "Because they're graduating doesn't mean they're leaving the show. If you have Lea Michele under contract, you don't just say, 'We're going to let you go.'"
"It was never our intention to let them go," Falchuk added. "They are not done with the show after this season."
Falchuk also shot down rumors that the trio may be heading to New York to film a spinoff. "That was something we were planting as a possibility, but we didn't get much further than that," he explained. "We're leaning against doing it. We certainly have explored it, but I think we're going to pass."
"I may not be coming back for a fourth season," Amber Riley, who plays Mercedes told E! News. "Who knows? Whatever happens this third season is what happens, and I think everybody's OK with it...I love my job to pieces, but when it's time to go, it's time to go and, hopefully, there are greater things on the horizon."
