After Cory Monteith’s tragic death in July, things haven’t been the same for “Glee” fans. The show did a tribute to Monteith with an episode titled, “The Quarterback.” Lea Michele was Monteith’s love both on and off the show, and his death has given the writers a difficult twist. According to an article posted by E! Online on October 17, Ryan Murphy is going to end “Glee” after Season 6 and do it in a way that honors Cory Monteith.
There has been a lot of hype over the way the show is choosing to remember Cory Monteith. He died in July from a lethal cocktail of alcohol and heroin. The tragedy left girlfriend Lea Michele crushed. It was just a horrible time for everyone. Ryan Murphy had already mapped out the ending to “Glee” before Monteith’s death. It was supposed to end with Monteith and Michele, and obviously that is no longer plausible. The writers are currently working another angle, and it will honor Cory Monteith.
“Glee” currently airs on FOX and has a huge fan base. While the announcement that it will be ending after six seasons isn’t surprising, fans are already talking about missing the show. Ryan Murphy is a genius and whatever he dreams up will be exactly what fans will need to get closure.
