According to CBS News on Wednesday, the next season of “Glee” will be its last, so says co-creator of the series Ryan Murphy.
At a Paley Center event honoring FX Network last night, Murphy said the show will not go on beyond its sixth season. Murphy also admitted that the death of Cory Monteith has forced him to come up with a different ending for the show.
“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. 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 added that he had a "good idea" of what the new endgame will look like, and that he'll tell it to the studio and network next week. "I think [the ending] is very satisfactory. And kind of in [Monteith's] honor, which I love."
Fox president Kevin Reilly told E! News in August that he didn't see the show continuing past season six.
Last week, the show paid tribute to Monteith in the emotional episode "The Quarterback." The show brought in 7.4 million total viewers and a 2.8 in the demo. That marks a 75 percent rise from the previous episode, the best ratings of the season and Fox's best demo numbers since September 2012.
