Glee - Season 6 To Be Final Season

In probably one of the least shocking but still expected news items, it seems that the sixth season of Glee (due to air in 2014-2015) will in fact be the show's last.

It seems that Ryan Murphy has now revealed that following the death of actor Cory Monteith and the recent tribute to him in The Quarterback, that his original vision for ending the series will be revised to honour the character of Finn as the final scene would've tied into both Rachel/Finn and their journey as a couple.

I have to admit that six seasons is probably a good run to end the series with. Glee has had it's time and while it's easily Murphy's most successful show to date (though American Horror Story is really gaining traction with audiences), the time has certainly come to end it though. I'll miss this show. Yes, the writing may have been choppy at times but it was never boring and it's hard to deny the impact it's had on television over the last couple of years either.

Press Release:

Glee's fifth season resumes airing in November, Thursdays at 9pm on FOX and Fridays at 8pm on Sky1.
