Creators Pulling the Plug on ‘Glee’
Some speculated whether the series would be able to go on without Cory Monteith, and it will, but not for long.
Glee creator Ryan Murphy said Wednesday night during an event, that the series will end after its sixth season next year, Variety reports.
Glee just recently began its fifth season on Fox. Murphy also said he'll also be forced to come up with a different series finale than he'd originally invisioned.
"The final year of the show was designed around Rachel and Finn’s story. I always knew that, I always knew how it would end," Variety quotes Murphy as saying, referring to Lea Michele's character Rachel and Monteith's character, Finn, who were lovers on the show.
"I knew what the last shot was; he was in it. I knew what the last line was; she said it to him," Murphy continued. "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.”
Last week's episode, "The Quarterback," paid tribute to Monteith's Finn, who died off-screen of causes from a reported drug and alcohol overdose.
