We’re still wiping our eyes after Glee’s emotional tribute to their late star Cory Monteith on October 10, and now series creator Ryan Murphy has announced more sad news. Get those tissues back out, because the hit Fox series will officially end after the upcoming sixth season, TVLine.com has confirmed.
Murphy, who had different ideas in place before Monteith’s unexpected death in July, is now reimagining the way the series will come to a close. “The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story,” he told TVLine.com. “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.”
What does the creator have in store for us? “I have a good idea,” Murphy said. “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.”
