Glee began with a heavy emphasis on Finn and Rachel, and from what series creator Ryan Murphy says, the Fox musical dramedy would have ended that way as well. Unfortunately, the plan has changed in the wake of Cory Monteith’s death earlier this year, however an excerpt from a eulogy Murphy gave at a memorial for the actor reveals how the ending of Glee would have played out.
Glee Will End With Season 6, Ryan Murphy Planning A Finale That's 'Kind Of' In Cory Monteith's Honor
We learned last Spring that Glee had been renewed for Season 5 and 6. Beyond that, the fate of the series was unknown, but a two-season renewal ensured fans that the musical dramedy would be around for at least two more years, which is more assurance than most drama series get. And then Cory Monteith died.
This year, however, the Emmy “In Memoriam” segment has been a hot button topic for viewers, spawning controversy leading into tonight’s ceremony.

Cory Monteith's death still seems too sad to be real. Unfortunately, it is real, and with the fall season approaching, we're left to wonder how the actor's demise will impact Glee, and how the writers would write Finn out of the show.

Glee cast member Cory Monteith’s death was a big blow for fans, but also for the cast and crew members who spent years and years working together. It’s tough to get over the death of someone, especially when that someone is an individual whose death is tragic and unexpected, and Fox is giving the cast and crew the opportunity to collect themselves. This will push back the fall premiere date for the series, but only by one week.
Fox’s Glee may have earned a fifth and sixth season order, but the upcoming season of the high school-based drama won’t get a pool of students from Oxygen’s reality series The Glee Project. The show has not earned a third season renewal at the NBCUniversal owned cable station, effectively cancelling the series.
The tragic death of Cory Monteith leaves Glee writers with a decision to make on the fate of his character, Finn Hudson. And they may be in a crunch to make that decision, as the series was supposed to begin production on Season 5 next week. But with Monteith's death this weekend, changes will need to be made to the start of Season 5, as Monteith's character Finn was expected to be featured prominently.
In what is both shocking and extremely sad news, Glee star Cory Monteith has died. This news was confirmed tonight during a press conference held by the Vancouver police. Cause of death is not yet confirmed, however the Vancouver police did say that there were no signs of foul play at the scene, and they'll be gathering information over the next couple of days, including speaking with Monteith's family in an effort to determine cause of death.
It's always mixed news when word gets out that a celebrity has entered rehab for substance abuse. On one hand, it's bad news, as it means there was evidently a problem. But on the other hand, at least they're getting the help they need, and hopefully some treatment will get them back on track. Such is the case for Glee's Cory Monteith, who reportedly entered rehab for substance abuse addiction. The news of the celebrity's choice to check into rehab was confirmed this weekend, and apparently it will affect his character on the Fox musical dramedy.
