In the days following the news of the tragic death of star Cory Monteith, many fans and critics alike, wondered what its impact would have on the Fox hit show, Glee. Well the cast and crew have managed to come back with a strong start to their fifth season and last week aired a beautiful tribute to both Cory and his character, Finn. Once “The Quarterback” was written, the writers took the planned extended hiatus to regroup and work out a new direction for the series. Back in April, Fox announced that it was renewing Glee for two more seasons carrying the series through to the end of season 6 in 2015. Many speculated at the time that this would mark the end of the series and last night the show’s co-creator, Ryan Murphy, confirmed the news. Last night Murphy attended a Paley Center event that honored the FX Networks and confirmed that season 6 will be Glee’s final season. He also revealed that the death of Monteith has resulted in the show moving in a completely different direction. In speaking to reporters, Murphy 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. 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.” Even though Rachel and Finn spent the majority of last season separated, Murphy and the other writers constantly dropped hints throughout the season that they would ultimately be once again reunited. At Mr Shue’s disaster of a wedding in episode 14, “I Do”, Finn told Rachel that he knew they were “endgame”. Not to mention that following the discovery that Brody (Rachel’s New York lover) was actually a gigolo, Finn rushed to the Big Apple and before punching his lights out, declared to Brody that Rachel was his “future wife.” It appears that they have finally come up with a solution and that it will still incorporate and honour Monteith and Finn in some way. Murphy elaborated, “I have a good idea. I’m going to tell the studio and the network [in a week] how after Cory’s unfortunate passing we can end the show that I think is very satisfactory. And kind of in his honor, which I love.” Glee will return on November 7 following a hiatus for the baseball.
