I’ve always wondered what it would be like to go to a school filled with singers and dancers doing their thing in the halls. Soon we won’t even be able to watch Mr. Schuester and the glee club perform their hard-hitting numbers throughout the McKinley High. Yes, it’s official: Glee will be ending after the sixth season, says creator Ryan Murphy.
“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story,” he said during a Paley Center panel. “… I always knew how it would end … 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.”
Murphy’s words just make last week’s Cory Monteith/Finn Hudson tribute episode that much more sad. I think everyone shed a tear when Rachel told Will about her plans for the future: ”I had it all planned out. I was going to make it big on Broadway. And maybe do a Woody Allen movie. And then when we were ready, I would just come back, and he [Finn] would be teaching here. And I’d walk through those doors, and I’d just say, ‘I’m home.’ And then we would live happily ever after.”
In my opinion, that would have been the perfect ending to the show – they lived happy ever after. Alas, it’s almost impossible to plan for the future when the unexpected happens.
