Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer may not be out of work after all.

Though Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy recently announced plans to axe their characters after the show's third season, executive producer Brad Falchuk said the popular trio will likely pop up again in future episodes.

"They are not done with the show after this season," Falchuk confirmed at Comic-Con in San Diego, Calif. Sunday. "Because they're graduating doesn't mean they're leaving the show. If you have Lea Michele under contract, you don't just say, 'We're going to let you go.'"

"It was never our intention to let them go," Falchuk added. "They are not done with the show after this season."

Falchuk also shot down rumors of a New York-based spinoff featuring Michele, 24, Monteith, 29, and Colfer, 21. "That was something we were planting as a possibility, but we didn't get much further than that," he explained. "We're leaning against doing it. We certainly have explored it, but I think we're going to pass."
