I’ve got so much tea happening today that I may burst my bladder. This bit of tea is for the Nene on Glee fans out there. Glee finishes it’s last filming of the season today. Most everyone has packed and left except for Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer. Season three ends with Rachel and Kurt going off to NYC to attend the New York Academy of the Dramatic Arts (NYADA). I know, I know. Who cares? Well Nene fans will. Here’s why.
Part of the reason you don’t see Roz on every episode of Glee since she was hired is that Glee has a big cast. There is often a big guest start, like Lindsey Lohan,who is on next Tuesday’s big two hour episode. So even people like Sue, Figgins and Beiste are not on every episode. Next season a considerable portion of the the show will be set in New York following Rachel and Kurt. There is also a rumor that Puck may have some storyline in LA. So while there still will be some scenes at Mckinley High and Coach Roz will still get screen time it will be considerably less. Lea Michele and Chris Colfer are two huge Nene supporters so Nene will certainly miss working with them.
The good news for Nene is that she has a heavily recurring role as Rocky in Ryan Murphy’s new NBC comedy The New Normal which was picked up recently for a fall premiere. So losing a few Glee episodes won’t hurt her pocketbook that much.
