The creator of Glee, a series based on a high school show choir, Ryan Murphy confirmed yesterday that the show will end after its next season. After three months of Glee actor Cory Monteith’s death, Murphy declared this at a Paley Center event. It was only last week that Glee paid a touching tribute to the late actor’s character, Finn Hudson.
Murphy also said that the sixth season and the series finale, was formerly meant to be based on Finn and his relation with a self-proclaimed singer, Rachel Berry, a character played by Lea Michele, Cory’s girlfriend in real life. He further said that after the tragedy they are still trying to figure what is going to happen next, as they will be revising the entire finale after Cory’s death.
Although, Fox has still not confirmed that Glee is going to end, but in the month of August, the Chairman of Fox Entertainment, Kevin Reilly said that he was not expecting the show to go for more than two new seasons. Murphy further said that the series’ set finale will be honoring Finn, which proved to be a breakthrough role for Cory, who was also paid a special Emmy’s Tribute in September. The honor was not well received by few people, who claimed that the late actor was less accomplished than some of his co-actors, including James Gandolfini from ‘The Sopranos’ and Jean Stapleton from ‘All the Family’.
Apart from being the creator of the show, Murphy is also the executive producer of Glee. He’s also popular for producing the Drama ‘Nip/Tuck’ for FX and also the mind behind American Horror Story, which is now airing the third season.
