Access Hollywood, "I didn't necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year, I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can't be there forever."
So how does he feel about leaving the show? "I don’t necessarily want to leave so soon, but I mean, it’s fine. It’s what it is. And all things come to an end." It seems like a far cry from co-creator Ryan Murphy's statement, "We made that decision and I involved Chris and Lea and they thought that [it] 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."
Chris is definitely leaving whilst on top. He just received an Emmy nomination for Best Actor in a Comedy. Chris says, "As a performer, I feel so fulfilled. 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."
Lastly, Chris adresses the rumours that there will be a Glee spin-off for his character, "I've only heard rumors, I’m not attached to anything officially. So, we’ll see where that goes."
