To say I was excited when the news broke that Lea Michele may be getting a Glee spinoff, well, that's an understatement. Considering Rachel Berry has been my favorite character from season 1 -- the thought of watching her take things in a new direction in New York City is just super appealing. But it sounds like we may not have to wait for a Rachel Berry spinoff to see our favorite Gleeks take Manhattan. Get this: Glee could move entirely to NYC.
As in, there are rumors it may happen mid-season and that there may be a bit of a time jump in order to make this all make sense.
I know. Deep breaths. This. Could. Be. HUGE!
You know what this means, don't you? That some of the McKinley students that have been added on in recent years, including Marley (Melissa Benoist), Unique (Alex Newell), Ryder (Blake Jenner), and Jake (Jacob Artist), may be dunzo. And I'm only slightly worried what this all means for Blaine and Sam. Rumor has it that both Glee studs will be "looking at colleges in Manhattan" come episode 6 of this season -- so that will place them in the big city if the show does indeed decide to make the time jump.
Exhale, this is a LOT to digest. However, just like with the concept of a Lea Michele spinoff, this whole time jump, moving Glee entirely to NYC idea feels right. After the Cory Monteith tragedy, the show needs something fresh, and something tells me the bump to Manhattan could be the perfect remedy.
Would you want to see Glee strictly based in NYC? Who would you miss the most from the cast?
