Glee Villain Promoted, Chris Colfer, Naya Rivera, Cory Monteith Return for Season 4 (UPDATED)


Uh oh Klaine fans. Guess who just became a Glee series regular? EOnline is reporting that Grant Gustin, who plays the Evil Gay Warbler Sebastian has been promoted to series regular!

We’re hearing Gustin will recur throughout the rest of this season and has a real breakout episode with the upcoming Michael Jackson tribute.

Kurt (Chris Colfer) and Blaine’s (Darren Criss) may be less than thrilled by the news, but a little bird tells us Sebastian’s crush on Blaine lessens in upcoming episodes.

It remains to be seen if Sebastian will be transferring to McKinley High next season

I have to admit. I did NOT see that one coming.  Sebastian is pretty much a one-note character at this point. And if his whole reason to exist is to break up couples…hm.  We’ll see.

UPDATE:  About Sebastian’s storyline, Grant Gustin tells TV Line: “It’s actually going less in a flirtatious direction [between Blaine and Sebastian], and more of [Sebastian] just being a d***,” says Gustin. “I’m not necessarily trying to split up [Kurt and Blaine].”

To soften the blow Klainers:  Chris Colfer told Jarett Wieselman of ETOnline at the FOX TCA party, “Yes. I’m coming back. I’m very excited. A lot of people are sad there won’t be a spinoff but I think they’re going to be very very excited to find out what’s in store – I’m very excited by it. Ryan’s idea is kind of revolutionary.  It’s the best of both worlds. Everyone is going to like it.'”  THANK JEEBUS Chris is coming back. He’s the best thing in Glee, if you ask me.

UPDATECory Monteith has also confirmed his return to Glee.  “Yes, I’ll be back,” Cory told The Hollywood Reporter, “I’m very excited.”

Naya Rivera, who  plays Santana tweeted earlier, “Super excited about working on glee for another year! Season 4 is going to be great! Ryan just filled me in on the new ideas. ”

FOX brass confirmed the return of Lea Michele at this afternoon’s FOX Executive session, but Lea confirmed it herself, “It’s official Rachel Berry will be back next year for season 4! I’m so happy you have no idea!! Ryan Murphy has some brilliant and ground breaking ideas for including us graduates in the show for next season! It’s going to be great!

Lea talks about returning to Glee with EOnline.

I wonder what Ryan’s “revolutionary” ideas are? I’m not going to get excited until I know details.  I can’t imagine a world where Kurt and Rachel DON’T hightail it out of Lima after they  graduate. Ya know?
