Gleeks everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief! Fan favorites Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, and Cory Monteith are not going anywhere! Earlier this month, “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy said the three cast members would be graduating in the upcoming season, leading people to think they would be leaving the show. Murphy had been planning a spin off for the characters, which is now said to be on hold.

In an interview with Deadline.com, Murphy set the record straight on all the recent news. He said the three are definitely still a part of the cast and will be for the long haul as they are under seven year contracts. Murphy says while he toyed with the idea of a spin off involving the three going to Juilliard, that idea is on hold and the creator is looking at new ways the actors will have life after graduating from William McKinley.

We are very relieved and can’t wait for Season 3 of Glee!
