Some Glee fans would argue that the overall interest in the show has definitely waned within the past couple of years, and it is true. With the death of Corey Monteith, executives had to sit down and think if it’s really worth it continuing on the popular Fox series. Has it finally ran its course? Apparently so, from what Ryan Murphy is saying to everyone.

Co-creator Ryan Murphy announced today that the next season will officially be the last for the Fox high school drama. Apparently Murphy and company had a different ending in mind for Glee, but now that Corey has passed the whole scenario has changed. Read on to see what he says on the subject:

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.

We’re not exactly sure at the moment how many more episodes the show has until it’s done for good, but fans should keep their eyes on the show. In some ways it was obvious that the show would be greatly affected by the passing of Corey Monteith, not because he was a part of the cast for so long but because he’s a main character. Either way, the show has had a great run.

Are you sad to hear that Glee will be wrapping up soon?
