Glee Season 6 to Feature Time Jump, Move Away from NYC

at . Comments

Speaking to a small group of reporters yesterday morning, creator Ryan Murphy offered up the first couple hints regarding Glee Season 6.

Most notably: it will only focus on a handful of characters; and it will NOT take place in New York City.

"Everything sort of builds to a head [on the Glee Season 5 finale]," Murphy teased. "I would say explosion is too harsh of a word, but something big happens and then the final season is the aftermath of that."

Murphy also said the series will return to its smaller roots and "concentrate on six people that we know and love and really work hard on their evolution" as Glee heads into its final season.

Surprisingly, though, despite the musical just moving entirely to The Big Apple... Season 6 will move away from The City That Never Sleeps.

"The final season is really its own story and its own location and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is really not New York-centric at all," Murphy said.

Finally, Murphy also acknowledged that he has a new concluding scene in mind (he had previously admitted that the first version involved Finn and Rachel). It centers on Rachel and Mr. Schue and...

"...it sort of returns them to their origins and their roots about how they felt about each other and when they were all much younger and everything was idyllic."

Glee Quotes

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
