Co-creator Ryan Murphy has officially confirmed that season 6 will be the series’ last season. He spoke to reporters at the Paley Gala at Fox Studios in L.A. on Wednesday, Oct. 16 .
Since the emotional and tragic July 13th passing of the shows star actor Cory Monteith, Murphy admits,
“It’s really f–king hard. It’s hard. It’s hard everyday,” he said. “It’s hard in the writer’s room. It’s hard on the set. It just feels like . . . it’s hard too because we’re getting ready to wrap up a series. We’re going to do one more year and that’s it. So the last scene and the last stories were always very Cory heavy.”
He also talked how he already had the last episode of the show planned out in his head before Monteith passed of a heroine overdose.
“Well, you know, it’s very sad. I just said the whole end year of the show, which will be next year, was designed really around Rachel/Cory, Finn story. I mean I always knew that,” he explained. “I knew how that 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 happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what else you want to do, so we’re figuring that out now. I have a good idea. I’m going in, in like a week, to tell the studio and the network how after Cory’s unfortunate passing we can end the show, which I think is very satisfactory and kind of an end in his honor — which I love.”
