Major 'Glee' stars not returning for season 4

'Glee' co-creator, Ryan Murphy, has revealed that some of the show's biggest stars will be graduating from McKinley High and won't return. 

In a brand new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he explained that leading stars Lea Michele, who plays Rachel Berry, Cory Monteith (Finn) and Chris Colfer (Kurt) will not be making a comeback in season 4.

He said that "more characters are leaving than are staying" and admitted:

"You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year.”
