It seems like only yesterday that we watched Finchel walk across the WMHS stage, but in just a few short months, a whole new batch of Seniors will be turning their tassels and leaving McKinley High for the last time.
TVGuide paid a visit to the set of the Fox musical dramedy last Wednesday, and executive producer Dante DiLoreto had a LOT to talk about. DiLorento revealed the McKinley High Class of 2013 WILL include Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), Blaine (Darren Criss), Artie (Kevin McHale), Brittany (Heather Morris) — AGAIN?! — and maybe, just maybe our favorite “Trouty Mouth,” Sam (Chord Overstreet).
If you think it sounds like Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) should make room in their Brooklyn loft for a lot of new roommates, don’t get your hopes up just yet. “I wouldn’t be surprised if [you find] another cast member or a few other cast members … in New York. That story has yet to reveal itself, but it seems like one of those natural conclusions,” DiLoreto spilled. “Just like we all do in high school, they’re going to different places and hopefully those are stories that we can blossom.”
Ushkowitz revealed she would like to see Tina go to the Big Apple, specifically. “In all honesty, Tina was, for the last three seasons, the underdog of the underdogs,” she said. “She got crapped on a little bit. … It made her so much stronger this season as a senior with so much more confidence. I want kids to be able to see that girl who they relate with come up in the world and gain this different confidence that she never thought she had before, and to go and maybe pursue New York because most people wouldn’t guess that she’d be the one to succeed.”
Overstreet, on the flip side, said he could see Sam heading off to Nashville, which he admits is not a very far trek from McKinley. “Once I graduate, I’d probably save up a little money, get back on the pole, but then, I don’t know, maybe I would move down to Nashville and do some country music,” Overstreet said. “I think Sam likes his country music. I’m certainly a country music fan.”
McHale can also see Artie chasing the Big Apple, but to pursue a very different goal. “It seems natural that he would maybe pursue the whole directing thing,” he said.
Heather Morris, in true Brittany fashion, had the most inventive idea for where she’d like to see her character. “I want my character to go to jail,” she said. “There should be an episode where she just raises her hand and is like, ‘I have to go to the bathroom,’ and she never shows back up and you show her later and she’s like in jail.”
What do you think of all of this? Where would you like to see your favorite characters at the end of the season? Are you surprised at the graduating class of 2013? Let us know!
