This isn't too surprising, given the circumstances. As was rumored back in August, Ryan Murphy has confirmed that next season of Glee, its sixth, will indeed be the last. According to TVLine, Murphy made the comments at a Paley Center event last night honoring FX, where he executive produces American Horror Story—and he also revealed what's in store for the final moments of the series.
"The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story," Murphy said. "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...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."
Last week, Glee aired their emotional goodbye episode for actor Cory Monteith and his characte Finn Hudson, "The Quarterback."
