On the final day of Comic-Con in Hall H, the cast and creators of Glee took the stage to thunderous applause. But it was what happened after the applause died down that made the biggest noise.
Right off the bat, the current situation involving Cory Monteith, Lea Michele, and Chris Colfer graduating and leaving the show for good came up, and executive producer Brad Falchuck finally set the record straight. Plus, what's the real deal with Chord Overstreet not returning for season three?

Although it was reported by every outlet around that Ryan Murphy announced Michele, Monteith and Colfer would be graduating at the end of next season and not returning to the show in any capacity, Falchuck claims that's not the case at all.
"They're seniors. They're graduating. But [just] because they're graduating doesn't mean they're leaving the show," he said to the anxious crowd. "If you have Lea Michele under contract, you don't say, 'We're gonna let you go.' It was never our plan or our intention to let them go. They are not done with the show after this season."
There you go, Glee fans. Looks like we won't be seeing the last of Rachel, Finn and Kurt after season three.
Falchuck also spoke about the Overstreet situation, claiming they did ask him back, but he declined. "We did invite him back for a portion of the season, to see if being a regular was a possibility," he explained. "But he declined the offer, which we were really disappointed by."
It's an unfortunate circumstance, because according to the show runners, they had a lot planned for him in season three. "We wanted him back because we like Chord personally and had some good stories planned for him and with Mercedes (Amber Riley). He decided he would have opportunities elsewhere that he would like to pursue, and we can't force him to work, so we wished him well."
