Chris Colfer learned he was leaving ‘Glee’ via Twitter!

Chris Colfer, who won a Golden Globe portraying Kurt on ‘Glee’ found out he was leaving the hit show after seeing the news on Twitter with the rest of us.

“I didn’t necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year,” he tells Access Hollywood. “I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can’t be there forever.”

Like many graduates, he says the milestone is bittersweet.

“Do I want to leave the show? Absolutely not,” he says in another interview, to Extra. “This is home for me. But I understand that there’s time for a conclusion.”

Still, he got a nice going-away gift: an Emmy nomination on Thursday.

“As a performer, I feel so fulfilled,” Colfer, 21, tells Extra. “It’s just a huge category. It’s best actor in a comedy, and we all know that Kurt’s not funny, so I’m very, very happy to be a part of it.”

That’s not too cool Ryan Murphy!

BREAKING: Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith NOT RETURNING for ‘Glee’ season 4!

The Hollywood Reporter revealed some sad news for ‘Glee’ fans this morning. Show regulars Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Cris Colfer WILL NOT be back for the fourth season of ‘Glee’.

In an exclusive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, series co-creator Ryan Murphy said that the three regulars will be among the characters who graduate at the end of the fall’s upcoming third season.

Colfer, Michele and Monteith are not going to be back at all for Season 4. Murphy tells THR: “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.”

Murphy added that planning for the future beyond high school will be a heavy theme during Season 3, noting that “more characters are leaving than are staying” when graduation time comes at the season’s end.

“We’ve never done anything by the book,” he said, adding that who’s graduating and who’s staying will be revealed in the Sept. 20 season premiere. “We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that was a good idea. They both trust the writing and trust me and felt that it would be great to have an open and closed experience for them to go out while they were on top.”

What do you think about this news? I love ‘Glee’, and I love these characters, but I don’t think I’ll be too upset when they don’t return. I kind of like the idea of bringing in new cast members!

Chris Colfer signs a 2-book deal!

Chris Colfer, who play’s Kurt on ‘Glee’, is about to become an author!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Colfer, 21, recently signed a two-book deal with Little, Brown Books for Young Readers.

The first book, titled ‘The Land of Stories,’ follows the adventures of a set of twins and will combine fairytales into a modern setting. The book, which targets young readers ages 8 to 12, will be released next summer. A second, yet-to-be-titled book will follow.

“When I was 10 years old, I promised myself that if I ever had the opportunity to write this book, I would jump at the chance,” Colfer said in a statement Wednesday. “This book has been at the core of my imagination for a long time and I’m excited and nervous to share it.”

But this isn’t the only new endeavor the talented star is tackling. It was recently announced that he’s penning a Disney Channel pilot based on the children’s book ‘The Little Leftover Witch’ by Florence Laughlin. But that’s not all. Colfer is also writing ‘Struck By Lightening,’ an independent feature film in which he would also star.

Recently named one of Time’s ‘100 Most Influential People,’ we have a feeling big things are in store for Colfer.
