'Glee' End Date Confirmed

"Glee" is ending after Season 6, and series co-creator Ryan Murphy told reporters he knows how he'll end the singing dramedy next season.

The original plan, according to Murphy, was to end with Cory Monteith and Lea Michele's characters. But in the wake of Monteith's tragic death in July, Murphy had to re-think his planned ending.

"The whole [last] year of the show -- which will be next year -- was really designed around Rachel-Cory/Finn story," Murphy said, according to EW. "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."

Murphy said he thinks the new ending is "very satisfactory" and still honors Monteith.

Fox has yet to officially confirm "Glee" will end after Season 6. In August, Fox's president of entertainment, Kevin Reilly, told reporters that "Glee" was likely coming to an end after Season 6.

“I would not anticipate it goes on,” Reilly said, according to Give Me My Remote, when asked about the future of "Glee" after Season 6. "Never say never, but there’s two very clear arcs to get to there and conclude. If we discover a new crop of kids and there’s some breakout, who knows. But right now, it’s being treated as two seasons [and then done]."

"Glee" star Chris Colfer told HuffPost Live in August that he's fine with the show ending after Season 6.

"Where would you go after a sixth season? I think six is a really good number and it's a good amount of time to spend with these characters," Colfer said.

"Glee" airs Thursdays, 9 p.m. ET on Fox.

This is only half the story: Season 7 of Glee will actually be American Horror Story's fifth season. Set in McKinley High School, Murphy and Falchuk will pay homage to teen slasher films, teen revenge films like Carrie, and the horror musical subgenre (Little Shop, Sweeney, RHS), while they burn the Glee universe to the ground.
