Hit TV show “Glee” will end next year, after six seasons.

Series co-creator Ryan Murphy confirmed the news during a Paley Center event honoring FX Networks in Los Angeles on Wednesday night, explaining that the recent death of Cory Monteith has altered his plans for the finale.

Monteith died from a drug overdose in July and was memorialized during a special episode which aired last week.

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.”

But he revealed he does have “a good idea” for the finale, adding, “I’m going to tell the studio and the network 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.”
