'Glee' creator talks about future cast changes for the show

 It's the question a lot of you fans out there have been asking yourselves: What is going to happen with the cast of Glee once high school is over?

 Glee creator Ryan Murphy has recently revealed to Australia's Herald Sun that with time, he is planning to incorporate new characters that will eventually substitute the current ones, once they become too old to play high school students.

 "Every year we're going to populate a new group," he said. "There's nothing more depressing than a high schooler with a bald spot."

 "I think you have to be true to the fact that here is a group of people who come and go in these teachers' lives," he said. "They graduate and they're gone. When some of them finish their run at high school it will be very teary episodes. For me it will be particularly tough, but a new crop [of actors] will come in."

Murphy also stated that he is aware of the risk of loosing viewership once the original cast is gone and expressed his concerns about it: "[The current] kids caught on so quickly," he explained. "But I think one of the things I'm very happy we've been able to do this year is we've brought in new characters. I think if you keep regenerating - and I didn't think we could - I didn't know if people would want those characters [like Sam] - but they do."

It is obvious that like every TV series set on high school, you can mess up the entire premise of the show with the transition to college so, to slowly incorporate new castmembers, though risky, may not be a bad idea after all.

What do you guys think? Would you still watch Glee long after Lea Michele is gone?
