Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy said he warned Chris Colfer and and Lea Michele that their characters would be written off after Season 3, but it seems the actors didn't quite hear him.

"I didn't necessarily know that it was going to be our last season next year," Colfer, 21, told Extra Thursday. "I knew something like that was coming up eventually. I mean, we can't be there forever."

Though it may seem bittersweet, Colfer is excited to see what adventures lies ahead for his character, Kurt Hummel. "I would love to see him walking off to the sunset with an internship at Vogue," the actor said. "That's where he's headed. That's what I would like."

Colfer also hopes Murphy will ask him back for a few episodes. "I'm hoping I can be like Farrah Fawcett, a la Charlie's Angels, and come back in the fifth episode," he mused. "Or I can be like Batgirl in the Batman series, where there's a symbol in the opening credits and you know they're in it."

Meanwhile, Colfer's costar Michele is trying to keep her spirits up after Murphy made the news public Wednesday. "We always knew we'd graduate in real time. It's all part of the plan and it's all good," the actress, 24, tweeted Thursday. "It's going to make Season 3 amazing! This is just the beginning!"
