Times they are a-changing at Glee‘s fictitious William McKinley High School, but Jane Lynch is facing it with the calm of Sue Sylvester teaching Intro to Cheerleading.

Asked about last week’s revelation that original castmembers Heather Morris (who plays Brittany), Mark Salling (Puck), Amber Riley (Mercedes) and Harry Shum, Jr. (Mike) won’t be returning to the Fox musical dramedy as series regulars, Lynch remains philosophical.

“That’s the nature of portraying a realistic view of high school: Kids graduate. They move on,” explains the multiple Emmy nominee, who’s busy promoting her new series Hollywood Game Night (premiering July 11 at 10/9c on NBC). “I like that we’re following some of the kids to New York where they’re trying to make it as actors and actresses. But the show will evolve, and when a show evolves that means you have to let some people go, and let some storylines go, so that you can pursue new ones.”

And what new storylines might be in store for Lynch’s irascible cheerleading coach, who ended Season 4 getting banned from the McKinley campus after saying she accidentally fired a gun at school (a lie that protected her favorite student Becky, who has Down Syndrome and was the real culprit in the accidental shooting)? Lynch says she has yet to see any Season 5 scripts, but knows she’ll “figure in the plot somehow, since I am coming back. But how will I be allowed back? Your guess is as good as mine.”

Could Lynch envision a scenario where Sue winds up in New York City, along with Rachel, Kurt and Santana? “It doesn’t matter what I envision — it’s what they come up with,” she explains. “And they’ve come up with some really interesting things for me [in the past]. I wouldn’t be surprised. It wouldn’t shock me. But I certainly haven’t heard anything about it.”

One thing Lynch says she is sure of is that she can stick with both Glee and Hollywood Game Night if the latter becomes a hit for NBC: ”It’ll take a little logistical juggling — but we’ll make it work.”

Excited to see what’s in store for Sue in Season 5? Stoked about Lynch’s new game show? Sound off in the comments!
