On the one hand, the 35-year-old actor is looking forward to taking on new acting challenges. He explained, "I'm so looking forward to being challenged with something else. I have been playing Mr. Schuester for what will be six years by then, so I'm looking forward to a new acting challenge. Something different, fresh and original," as Press Association reported on December 18, 2013.
The Broadway veteran is also considering taking a break from television in order to focus on theater work. As he explained, "I want to take a break from television. It's a grueling schedule and my heart has always been on stage. I realize that even more so now. Because of this long show, I haven't been able to get back on stage."
Still, Morrison will miss working with his "Glee" cast mates, as they have become family to him. Once the show ends, he and his co-stars plan to get together for reunions.
As he commented, "these people will always be in my life. We had an original 'Glee' cast reunion with the people who were there from the very beginning, including the old-school 'Glee' people that aren't there any more. I think it's something that we will do quite often when the show is over."
Rumors have floated around over the past few seasons that the sometime Emmy Award nominee has been unhappy with his role on the show. In March 2012, an interview suggested that he regretted signing a 7-year contract, and that his commitments to the show had prevented him from being able to accept other career offers.
Still, back in 2011, Morrison's reps denied rumors that he had felt trapped on the show, and that he had wanted to get out of his contract.
What kind of career opportunities would you like to see him pursue once "Glee" wraps up? Would you like to see Morrison back on Broadway?
