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

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

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.
