Glee’s sixth season next year will be its last

Without Finn Hudson around, other characters have become more central.

Although the fifth season of Glee barely premiered a few weeks ago, show creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that it will end after season six.

While he originally planned for Cory Monteith’s character Finn Hudson to play a major role, the actor’s death has forced some plot changes.  As far as the memorial episode for Monteith’s character, it aired last week to some very positive buzz, focusing on his life rather than the circumstances of his death.

Moving forward hasn’t been easy for Murphy, who says, “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.”

However, he added, “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.”
