  • Fans of the hit Fox show, brace yourselves... as this season will be its last

    Glee creator Ryan Murphy has broken the news that Series 6 of Glee will be the show’s last – a statement which will no doubt break millions of fans’ hearts worldwide. Sob. 

    Rumours that the next series, which will hit our screens in 2014, could be the last have been circulating for months, but were never officially confirmed by the show’s producers.
    And while Fox have yet to confirm his statement, Murphy has let slip to reporters that the show will be leaving our screens for good next year while talking at a media event in LA.

    Admitting that Cory Monteith’s death forced him to completely reconsider the show’s finale, 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”, Murphy continued.
    “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.” 
    The new finale episode, marking the end of Glee‘s hugely successful four-year stint on our screens, will now pay tribute to Cory’s character Finn Hudson following the Canadian actor’s tragic death in May. 
    “I think it’s very satisfactory and kind of in [Monteith’s] honour, which I love”, Ryan added about Series 6’s revised ending. 
    In April this year, Fox renewed the hit musical TV show for a fifth and sixth season as part of a two-season deal. Lea Michele and her co-stars bid goodbye to Cory in a hugely emotional memorial episode for the star broadcast in the US last week. 
    We’re so sad to say goodbye to Lea and co. Glee, we’ve had a blast.
