"Extra" talked with the "Glee" gang at their sing-along event in Santa Monica - where they dished about what to expect this coming season on the hit FOX show.
Kevin McHale, who plays Artie Abrams, told "Extra" the first episode is "definitely an update of what the kids did over the summer."
"I'm kind of shocked we did some of the stuff we did," said Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel. "We had to have a lot of safety meetings, I'll say that," adding that it's mostly due to Jane Lynch's character, Sue Sylvester. "It's her fault!"
"Extra" correspondent Jerry Penacoli sat down with the cast of "Glee" to talk about their upcoming "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie" -- and the hoopla surrounding the reports that key cast members Lea Michele, Corey Monteith and Chris Colfer will be "graduating" from the show at the end Season 3.
The show's creator Ryan Murphy recently announced Michele, Monteith and Colfer would be leaving the show after the next season because their characters are seniors and would realistically be exiting high school. But during last week's FOX TCA tour, network executives clarified that it still an ongoing creative process and nothing concrete has been decided.
Based on early media reports, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2" will likely beat the $158.4-million opening weekend record set by "Dark Knight" in 2008. The much anticipated final "Harry Potter" opens today.

"Glee" star and newly anointed Emmy nominee Chris Colfer talked with "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli about his character, the colorful Kurt Hummel, leaving the show after next season, how he'd like Kurt to go out -- and what's next for the talented star.
Colfer said he was "surprised that an announcement was made" by co-creator Ryan Murphy about the cast shake-up, which also includes the ousting of co-stars Lea Michele and Cory Monteith, but Colfer understands.
"I think we all knew something like this was coming. Ryan's been very honest from the beginning, saying that the kids were going to eventually grow up and leave, because that's what happens, kids grow up and leave. We can't be in high school forever." The actor added, "Do I want to leave the show? Absolutely not. This is home for me. But I understand that there's time for a conclusion."
It looks like Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer are among the "Glee" cast members permanently graduating at the end of Season 3 in 2012.
The hit FOX show just earned a slew of Emmy nominations, including one for Colfer, who toasted his nod for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series with "Extra's" Jerry Penacoli, and confirmed that this coming season will be his last.
"Do I wanna leave the show? Absolutely not," said Colfer. "This is home for me, but I understand. It's time for a conclusion."
"Glee" co-creator Ryan Murphy broke the news to the Hollywood Reporter. "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."
