Bye bye McKinley High, hello Broadway! Glee is set to film the remainder of season five in New York, according to Entertainment Weekly. At a Television Critics Association panel on January 13, Fox entertainment chair Kevin Reilly confirmed the long-rumored plans that the rest of this season will be set entirely in the Big Apple.
With the change of scenery Glee will get some cast revamps but details are still unclear. “Some are going to be graduating and moving; creatively, it would be ridiculous that everybody moves to New York,” Reilly said. “There will be some that will graduate and move on and they’ll arc back in when we do special episodes. They’ll always be a part of it… But for this season, there will be a graduation, several of the cast members will move on and a few others will go to New York.”
It was previously reported that after the musical comedy celebrates its 100th episode that will feature Gwyneth Paltrow, Kristin Chenoweth, and most of the original cast, the show would do several episodes in New York City focusing on Rachel (Lea Michele), Blaine (Darren Criss), Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Sam (Chord Overstreet).
