Glee to Conclude After Season 6

by at . Comments

At an FX Networks event in West Hollywood last night, Ryan Murphy made it official: Glee will come to an end after next season.

The program is in the middle of Season 5 and was renewed for Season 6 back in April.

While confirming his musical comedy's end date, Murphy also told reporters that plans for the series finale will need to be altered because the final year had been "deigned around Rachel and Finn."  Cory Monteith, of course, tragically died of a drug overdose this summer and Glee paid tribute to its fallen star last Thursday.

Honoring Finn

"I always knew how it would end," Murphy said. "I knew what the last shot was – [Monteith] 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."

Does he have a new plan in place?

“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.”

Glee Season 5 is on hiatus and will return November 7 with an episode titled "A Katy or a Gaga."

All I can say is boo. Maybe Ryan could do a spin off about Rachal, Kurt and Santana. Seeing as now I think there the ones that make the show.
