Ryan Murphy Announces End Of 'Glee'
Glee is hitting the home stretch, Instincters! Ryan Murphy announced Wednesday night during a Paley Center event honoring FX Networks that the next season (6) of Glee will be the show's last.
“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story,” he told reporters. “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.
“I have a good idea,” Murphy added. “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.”
We all tuned in last week for Glee's goodbye to Cory Monteith—and subsequently had to restock our tissue supply—and we couldn't help but feel that there's a big hole in the show's narrative that simply can't be filled now that Cory and Finn are gone.
We're not surprised that Murphy has seen fit to call it a wrap. Do you agree with his decision to end the series, Instincters? How would you like to see Glee conclude?
