Glee ran its course after two seasons. However, television is about money not about entertaining people so it’s still on air years later.
After firing most of the original cast around season three or demoting them to bit-parts, the show’s creator is finally ending it altogether. The show is officially coming to an end after its sixth season finale. Creator Ryan Murphy adds, the death of Cory Monteith has changed the planned finale.
“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around [Lea Michele’s character] Rachel and [Monteith's character] Finn’s story,” Ryan said at an event honoring FX Networks on Wednesday. “I always knew that. I always knew how it would end.”
“I knew what the last shot was, [Finn] 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 it out.”
Now that Cory is gone, though, Ryan says he has a “good idea” how to end things and it is “kind of in [Monteith's] honor, which I love.”
