Doesn’t it seem like just when you are getting into a groove with your favorite characters on your must-see T.V. shows that something changes? This new season of shows will be no different. Some of our favorite characters have endured tragedies, or will not be returning because of off-screen moves or opportunities elsewhere. At the same time, many shows will be adding new faces to shake things up.
Glee – After tragically losing Cory Monteith this summer, the Glee cast will dedicate the third episode of the season to his death. On a brighter note, Demi Lovato will be joining the cast. Her character will be a new love interest for Naya Rivera’s character Santana.
Parks and Recreation – Fans were disappointed to hear that Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones will be leaving the show halfway through the season. It’s unclear how the show will continue without them, but we are optimistic that with enough time the producers will surprise us with something great.
American Idol – Doesn’t it seem like just yesterday that the 3 judges to impress were Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Simon Cowell? This season, we will see both Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban return to the judges’ table. Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj are faces of the past. Newcomer Harry Connick Jr. will take the third chair.
Grey’s Anatomy- Fans will only have one more season with Cristina Yang, and who knows if it will even be a full one. Sandra Oh and Grey’s Anatomy series creator Shonda Rimes have confirmed this to be true. We can’t decide what’s better, a happy exit or a dramatic one?
