Actor Chris Colfer says it was “weird” returning to McKinley High.

Colfer's Kurt Hummel is returning to his former school after spending much of the show's second season at the Dalton Academy, where he became romantically involved with glee club Warblers star Blaine Anderson, played by Darren Criss.

In a teaser clip released by the network, Blaine is seen looking sad and singing Somewhere Only We Know as he appears to say goodbye to Kurt. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

But in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Colfer says it's not the end of their romance.

“They kinda of just have to deal with more of a long-distance relationship,” he said. “I mean, it's not like they've got anyone else to cheat with. He's around as much as he was before.”

Colfer adds that returning to his Glee family was “weird.”

“It was weird coming back. It was weird. They even said, 'It's weird having you back.' I felt like Shelley Long returning to Cheers. While I was gone, they established all these personal jokes that I don't know what they're talking about. So I'll be like, 'Oh this one time at Dalton ...” [Laughs.]
