Ryan Murphy Confirms ‘Glee’ Will End After Season 6


As some might have speculated, FOX’s hit musical series ‘Glee’ will officially have its final curtain call after Season 6, but it won't end without honoring Cory Monteith, TVLine recently reported.

At last night’s FX Paley Center event, ‘Glee’ co-creator Ryan Murphy confirmed the news, in addition to revealing that the show was supposed to end around Finn (Monteith) and Rachel’s (Lea Michele) love story.

“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story. I always knew that, I always knew how it would end,” Murphy said. “I knew what the last shot was – he was in it. I knew what the last line was – she said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we’re figuring that out now.”

Murphy continued, “I have a good idea. I’m going to tell the studio and the network [in a week] how after Cory’s unfortunate passing we can end the show that I think is very satisfactory. And kind of in his honor, which I love.”

It’s been a tough year for the series, especially after Monteith died this past July. Last Thursday, ‘Glee’ aired Cory/Finn’s farewell episode, which was a heartbreaking moment for the cast, crew and fans of the show. Some might even say it’s hard for the show to continue without Monteith.

Are you surprised the series is coming to a close? How do you think it should end?

‘Glee’ airs Thursdays at 9/8c on FOX.

If you want to honour cory tell it like it was. Unlike The Quarterback episode which was a complete sham of who he was. The guy had problems, huge emotional problems BUT the real truth is Cory was a JUNKIE end of story not some glorified actor that should be constantly honoured and remembered just for glee(glee not worth using capital letters).

Me and my daughter are faithful watchers. Last week we cried along with most other Gleeks I'm sure. I won't say good riddance, it'll be missed in our home tremendously. I don't really get why someone would be so happy to see it go, just turn the channel.Duh.
