Okay, as much as I hated how House just kept the original Cottages around even after introducing new ducklings… I totally want Glee to do this.
Everyone graduates. New glee clubbers are brought in. But the originals all just keep popping up at McKinley/Breadstix/The Lima Bean like it’s NBD. Rachel and Kurt make frequent visits from New York. Brittany is held back and Santana attends the local community college until she graduates. Puck plans to travel the country, but he spends a year in Lima saving up his money. Even if the shift focuses to the new guys, I don’t want you to be able to throw a rock without hitting at least Mike.
