‘Glee’ creator teases ‘underdog’ plans for season four

Ryan Murphy also praises the show's 'volatile' fanbase

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has revealed that the show’s fourth season will return the characters to their “underdog” status.

The show’s third season finale last week saw several of the characters graduate, and the next run will follow their adventures beyond high school, while also picking up the action back at McKinley.

He described the “halo” that many fans have put on the show’s acclaimed first season and said that the next one may please fans who feel that the show has lost its way.

He told Vulture: “I will say the story for season four gets back to the underdog status [for the characters]. And that will appease people, maybe. Sometimes I feel that you can’t win. It’s just a volatile group of people that watch it, and for that, I like their passion.”

Murphy went to reveal that he knows how the show will end up, and he already has the final scenes in place. He said: “Even though Glee is sometimes a hard road, I am very excited about writing a multi-year arc. For example, Rachel Berry, meeting her as you did, hopefully by the end of her journey she will be a star. That’s a very long, long period. I know where she’ll end up. I know what the last scene will be.”

He has previously revealed that all of the regular cast will be back in some form.
