Glee: Ending with Season Six Says Murphy

Glee endingThe co-creator of Glee, Ryan Murphy, has confirmed that season six will be the end of the musical dramedy series.

At a Paley Center event last night, Murphy also noted that Cory Monteith’s untimetly death has forced him to rethink how he’ll end the show.

He said, “The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story… 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.”

Murphy added, “I have a good idea. 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.”

In last week’s tribute episode, Rachel (Lea Michele) layed out how she saw her future with Finn. She makes it on Broadway and then returns to McKinley High where Finn is a teacher and tells him that she is home.

It sounds like that may have been the original ending to Glee.

What do you think? Do you think Glee should end next season? How would you end the show?

    Glee has been my favorite show for the past 5 years. Personally, I would like it to go on forever. I realize all good things must come to an end but as I have purchased all of the seasons on DVD (am still waiting for #4 to be released), I guess I will just have to watch them instead of new episodes. Please don’t end GLEE.

    I wish they would halt “Glee” now, in the midst of Season 5. The quality of the show has so severely deteriorated, it seems like a parody of the fabulous program it once was. There’s such superficiality to all of the relationships now. Trying to smash two completely separate storylines and locations (Lima and NYC) into one show was a poor decision on behalf of the producers.

    The NYC storyline/actors should have been spun-off into a new series, at the start of Season 4. If that action had been taken, there would have been ample time to dig more deeply and meaningfully into the relationships (including family relationships) of all of the new students, along with giving a fuller perception of what college life and living in NYC are like. The two separate musical programs could have overlapped their storylines/characters, from time to time, as many previous series’ have done, but keeping them all together has done nothing but destroy the intimacy between the characters, as well as, that between the audience and “Glee”.

    Currently, there’s a major lack of issue-based episodes, which was such a critical part of the success of the first three seasons. It used to touch deeply on meaningful topics and relationships. Now everything seems so artificial, superficial, and trivial – the whole thing appears to be a very sad joke.

    I’m glad to see “Glee” finally come to its end! Its long overdue!
    Maybe it will be replaced with a REAL COMEDY that deserves Emmy’s for Funniest Actor/Actress or whatever it was! There’s nothing funny about that show! Certainly not the ones who won!
    Goodbye can’t come quick enough!

    I think Ryan Murphy took a good decision to end the show next season! Even if Cory Monteith would be still alive!
