Glee Panel at Comic Con - Gleecap

Follow TroutyMouthBlog on Twitter

First things first... Just because we didn't make it to Comic Con this year, doesn't mean we won't give you a Gleecap! Of course we will! I was trollin' the UStreams and recaps all day, to try and make sure I got you guys all the juice from the Glee Panel at Comic Con today.

So... Without further ado...

From the Panel

Included on the panel are: Darren Criss, Harry Shum Jr., Dot Marie Jones, Jenna Ushkowitz, as well as movie director Kevin Tanchearoen, choreographer Zack Woodlee, executive producer Dante di Loreto, co-creator Ian Brennan and co-creator Brad Falchuk.
  • On Graduating: Cory, Lea, and Chris are all graduating. However, Falchuk said that "just because they are graduating, doesn't mean they are leaving the show." He even went as far as to say, "I can guarantee here that they are not done with the show after this season." I find this one particularly interesting... According to the Hollywood Reporter article, Murphy said that they won't come back at all... interesting. Someone is telling lies... LIES I TELL YOU!
  • Good news for Tina fans... Jenna is a Junior! Wahoo!!!! That was the best news of the whole hour-long panel!
  • Season sequence: The main focus of the first 9 episodes will be on character development, leading up to Sectionals. If there is a "tribute" episode, it will happen in the second half of the season. Lovin' this set up. I'm really interested in how relationships and personal developments will develop. It should make for a great start of the season. As far as the tribute is concerned? I have a few suggestions RIB - MJ, Elton, or Madonna#2. Just a couple of thoughts...
  • On Chord: They did not make him a regular, but invited him to come back as a recurring guest star. Chord declined. So he will not be returning in Season 3. In an attempt to keep this as unbiased as possible, I'm simply just going to say... I'm disappointed. I'll leave it at that.
  • What about Samcedes? The writers confirmed that Mercedes WILL get a boyfriend next season that she meets over the summer! Can I just say... It's about damn time!
  • On Mike Chang: Tike is going to be just fine this season. Oh, and we'll get to meet Mr. and Mrs. Chang. Big fan of Tina Cohen Chang Chang... and I'm super stoked that they're keeping them together. And pretty sweet that we'll get to meet the parents of Mr. Hotdancer, Mike Chang. Not whose parents I'd assume they'd introduce... but I'm ok with it.
  • On Klaine: Falchuk says "they're solid". He also adds, "They have problems - you have two stars dating each other, there’s going to be some competition there." I could see where they may butt heads... but I have to say that I'm super happy that Kurt's going to have (hopefully) a solid season of happiness. Yay, Klaine!
Other Notables
  • Beiste will return.
  • Brennan is trying to make 'Santittany' happen.
  • Brennan on Heather and Naya, "We had two incredible talents on our hands that we didn’t realize."

  • Criss may be able to go to Broadway.
  • New character won't be a nemesis to Sue?Also confused by this based on the above Hollywood Reporter article.
  • Fun fact: Story comes first. Then song choice comes to enhance the storyline.I just want to applaud this trio (RIB) for exploring the unchartered world of amazing song choice on a TV show. Brava. Brava.
  • Revealing the Glee Clubbers families is a debatable issue among the writers. They're toying with the idea, but they don't know when and if they'll do it.
  • A spinoff is a possibility, and the writers are exploring it. However, Falchuk says "We're leaning against a spinoff right now. I think we’re going to pass."
  • Fun Fact: Cast's dream Broadway roles -- Ushkowitz: "I wanna be Kim in Miss Saigon." Shum Jr.: "Singing in the Rain." Criss: "The MC, Cabaret." DMJ: "Ursula."
  • Criss would like to sing Aladdin on the show.
  • Sue runs for Congress. Ken dies of a heart attack.
  • The writers have explored the idea of writing a love interest for Beiste.
  • When it comes to the inspiration behind Brittany's one-liners, Brennan said, "You wander through your life and think, 'What would Britney think if she were here?'"
  • Finally, Di Loreto makes Season 3 claims: "The stories that are coming out are going to knock your socks off. It’s going to be the most extraordinary season."
And that's the wrap on Glee at Comic Con 2011! Hope you found it to be interesting! I know I did. Hopefully we will be there next year :)
