At a Paley Center event celebrating FX Networks on Wednesday evening, series creator Ryan Murphy confirmed the show will end with Season 6. The news isn's particularly surprising, as Fox ordered Season 5 and Season 6 simultaneously, and network president Kevin Reilly said during the TCA Summer Press Tour that he didn't expect the show to continue beyond Season 6. And because the series is only a shell of what it once was. But I digress.
Murphy also said that he's had to devise a different ending for the series in the wake of Cory Monteith's death. Murphy originally intended to center the final season on Monteith's character Finn Hudson and his relationship with Lea Michele's Rachel Berry; he said he "knew what the last line was," and it was spoken by Rachel to Finn, but now that's all changed. Murphy's new idea for the series finale, which he has yet to floated by Fox executives, will now honor Finn and Cory, just like last week's tribute episode honored a character who was often the emotional center of the series.
What do you think of this news? How would you like to see Glee end?
