At the FOX TCA Panel, Fox entertainment chairman, Kevin Reilly revealed that the sixth season may indeed be its last.
On TV Snitch earlier this year, we revealed that the Fox show was renewed for two more seasons and we hinted that the sixth season would be its final season. It turns out that we were correct.
With the death of one of its stars, Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson, it was obvious and also expected that Glee will use it's sixth season to wrap up the story line.
Reilly told The Hollywood Reporter that he doesn't expect it to go beyond two more seasons. "There's two very clear arcs to get to that end and conclude," he said. "Listen, if we discover a new crop of kids and there's some breakout, who knows? But right now we're thinking about two seasons." Reilly also confirmed that the third episode of the fifth season will deal with the death of Monteith’s character, Finn. “We are still working it out… it’s not clear whether the departure of Finn will deal with drugs.” Reilly also said that Monteith’s passing changed the conclusion of that creators, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk had crafted for the show.
The Emmy Awards have also confirmed that they will be doing a tribute to Monteith at next month's Emmy Awards, while Glee have released a 12-second video tribute to the star.
