Glee stars leaving 'Glee'?? NOOOOOOOO!

Cory Monteith and Mark Salling who play Finn Hudson and Noah Puckerman, respectively, are most likely to bid “Glee” goodbye next year.

According to series creator Ryan Murphy, Finn and Puck are seniors in the fictional William McKinley High and the actors playing the characters are already in their late 20s making their “Glee” dismissal inevitable in 2012.

“Every year we’re going to populate a new group (of characters in the show). 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 – they graduate and they’re gone. When some of them finish their run at high school it will be very teary episodes.” Ryan Murphy said in a statement posted on Ryan added, “For me it will be particularly tough (seeing them go) but a new crop (of actors) will come in. I was concerned about that (whether to have characters graduate and leave the show) because those kids caught on so quickly – but I think one of the things I’m very happy we’ve been able to do this years is we’ve brought in new characters.”

One “Glee” star who quickly appealed to the show’s followers in just a few episodes is that of Sam, played by Chord Overstreet, who first appeared on “Glee’s” season 2 pilot along with Charice Pempengco. Murphy said the show can keep evolving this way.

“I think if you can keep regenerating – and I didn’t think we could – I didn’t know if people would want those characters (like Sam) but they do.”
