Can Glee’s Kurt and Blaine weather the storm? Over the last year or so, Glee, the musical comedy, which always touted itself as a particularly uplifting series, went dark to deal with issues that unraveled within the show and outside of it as well.
This year, it seems like we’re getting back to a lighter final season. Speaking about the abbreviated 13-episode season, creator Ryan Murphy doesn’t want fans to worry about Blaine and Kurt.
The idea that Blaine and Kurt (Chris Colfer) would be experiencing troubles didn’t come out of thin air. Last season was rocky for the engaged couple, and this year the re-introduction of ex-jock Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) as a romantic perspective for Blaine (Darren Criss) just didn’t sit well with the shippers.
According to E! Online, Ryan Murphy promises that fans will be happy about Blaine and Kurt’s future when the series finale comes.
“You have to have obstacles to have a happy ending,” he said.
Brad Falchuk added, “It’s ‘Glee.’ Be happy. It’s going to be OK.”
He added, “I have a lot of angry tweets. But look, it’s a new season and we’re exploring some stuff. We love Kurt. We love Blaine. We love them together. We love them apart. We love them all kids of ways. And I think that their relationship is a really great place to explore some more complicated stories.”
Murphy continued with his point, and said he thought long and hard about the fulfillment of the fans as a whole.
“I’ve spent a year learning what they want. We have a list in the writers’ room that says, ‘What do the fans want to end that show?’ And our endings are all very uplifting, and I think by the end of it, people will be ecstatic and really thrilled by how things turn out. I am.”
As the Inquisitr learned, Heather Morris, Naya Rivera, Dianna Agron, and Mark Salling will guest star alongside series regulars Lea Michele, Darren Criss, Kevin McHale, Chris Colfer, and Chord Overstreet in the finale season so that their storylines can be wrapped up before the musical comedy signs off of the Fox network for good.
In addition to this news, we also know through Falchuk that they finally pegged down a new ending of the series, since the original included Lea Michele’s Rachel and the late Cory Monteith’s Finn. Murphy has spoken at length about his hopes for the new ending, but now we have confirmation that it’s close to being finished.
