One of the stars of "Glee" took to Twitter to put a positive spin on the news that three of the stars of the hit Fox show won’t be returning for the fourth season, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Lea Michele said the departures were always part of the plan.
As previously reported, Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer will be leaving the show after the upcoming 2011-2012 season, as the show’s co-creator, Ryan Murphy, notes that the characters started as sophomores in high school and need to graduate at the end of their senior year.
"We always knew we’d graduate in real time," Michele tweeted. "Its all part of the plan and it’s all good! Its going to make Season 3 amazing!"
She added later, "This is just the beginning.”
