Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed the popular Fox series will end after its sixth season.
Murphy said following the tragic death of Cory Monteih, the show can’t go in the direction he intended it to go. He said the last line of the series was supposed to be between Rachel Berry, played by Lea Michele, and Finn Hudon, played by her off-screen boyfriend Monteith.
“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel (Lea Michele) and Cory/Finn’s story,” he said, HollywoodLife reports.
“I always knew that, I always knew how it would end. 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 also revealed the tribute episode that aired last week isn’t the end of the show mourning Monteith.
“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," he said, TVLine reports.
Last week’s episode, "The Quarterback,” was also in honor of Monteith and his character, Finn.
