Glee‘s Darren Criss Is Looking Forward To A Kurt-Blaine “Shake-Up” Next Season

|

We’ve always thought Kurt and Blaine’s relationship on Glee was the sweetest, most real thing about the show. Then again, we were totally amused when their comfort together introduced the concept of “lesbian bed death” to the kids. When Kate Spencer caught up with Darren Criss at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, it sounded like he agreed on both fronts.

“We’ve kind of established a Ross and Rachel [relationship],” Criss told VH1. “I’m not saying they’re going to break up. I have no idea. But there’s a definite connection there that hopefully will be there till the end of whatever the show may be. But I think we’d like to see some shake-up. We are verging on old married couple territory.”

Fortunately, the new format of the show — with the Kurt and the rest of last year’s seniors in New York and elsewhere outside of McKinley High — naturally offers a good shaking.

“It’s a new show now,” Darren said. “Blaine has a long-distance boyfriend and there are inherent obstacles in that, that will be good to explore. Whether they choose to stay together, it won’t be easy. If they don’t stay together it’ll be a big deal, but at least it will be drama and interesting.

“We’re changing the format, and it’s going to be cool,” he continued. “It’s going to be cool to leave the hallways of McKinley and see a New York apartment and see these characters existing outside of the world of Lima, Ohio. I’m really excited!”
