According to the article on E! Online, Lea Michele says that her character Rachel and some of the other seniors will be graduating at the end of this season, but won’t be leaving the show during season four. I can’t say I’m not too surprised really. The backlash from fans on losing these characters was pretty big and it kinda makes me wonder if the news that they were leaving the show is why ratings are so low this season. Of course the ratings could just be what I have already said before, this season has been very boring and not that exciting. I wonder if Ryan Murphy’s original plan was to have the seniors leave the show with guest appearances, but with all the backlash it was a change of plan for season four. Season four is also expected to be groundbreaking and revolutionary for a TV show according to Lea. That makes me excited for season four to get here.
