It looks like Sue Sylvester has won after all.
Following Wednesday night's news that Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer would not return to Glee for Season 4, co-star Jane Lynch appeared in a phone interview on Access Hollywood Live and defended executive producer Ryan Murphy's decision, saying he "rarely makes bad calls."
Glee: Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer not returning for Season 4
On Wednesday, Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter the decision was purely a realistic and creative one. "You can keep them on the show for six years and people will criticize you for not being realistic, or you can be really true to life and say when they started the show they were very clearly sophomores and they should graduate at the end of their senior year," he said.
Lynch, who scored a supporting actress Emmy nom and will also host this year's Emmy ceremony on Sept. 18, went on to say, "I think it's kind of cool that they will graduate." Of course, getting to continue her reign as evil Cheerios coach Sue Sylvester doesn't hurt, either. "And I also think it's kind of cool that the teachers get to stay!" she said.
