Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that the next season of the show will be its last.

Murphy attended an event at the Paley Center event honoring the FX Network last night, and he also revealed that the death of Cory Monteith has forced him to come up with a alternate ending for the show.

"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,” Murphy added. “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.”

If you watched Glee's tribute to Cory Monteith last night and didn't cry -- you have no soul. On Thursday night, the hit FOX show finally debuted its highly anticipated farewell episode to quarterback-turned-pop song Finn Hudson, played by the late Cory Monteith, and it was a five-tissue tearfest.

On July 13, Monteith was found dead in his Canadian hotel room from an overdose of ""intravenous heroin use combined with the ingestion of alcohol."

The episode, aptly titled "The Quarterback," was written by Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Brad Falchuk and Ian Brennan, and picks up three weeks after Finn's death, which is never explained. The moving tribute begins with an electric performance of "Seasons of Love" from Rent by the cast, including graduates Puck (Mark Salling) and Mike Chang (Harry Shum Jr.).

In the somber episode, Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) tries to figure out the best way for McKinley High School to honor Finn. the stars did version of past favorites and song that Finn himself had sang. There were countless tributes to their fallen friend and castmate, including Mercedes (Amber Riley) singing "Stand By You," Santana (Naya Rivera) singing "If I Die Young," Artie (Kevin McHale) and Sam (Chord Overstreet) singing "Fire and Rain" and Puck performing "No Surrender."

Unsurprisingly, the night's showstopper was Lea Michele, who appeared in the last 15 minutes of the show, and sang a chilling cover of "Make You Feel My Love." Gaah stop. We can't … we just can't.

Just writing about this emotional episode makes us teary-eyed. Both FInn Hudson and Cory Monteith left too soon ...

Cory Monteith Absent From Glee Season Five Sneak Peek

Aug 28, 2013 09:20 AM

The sad reality that Cory Monteith's character Finn Hudson will not be coming back to Glee is slowly sinking in. FOX released a sneak peek at season five of the hit show and Monteith's absence from it was palpable. The majority of the trailer is upbeat and focuses on the upcoming Beatles tribute, Sue Sylvester's new reign as principal of William McKinley High and the rumored proposal from Darren Criss' character Blaine, however there is a quick flash to a somber Rachel (Lea Michele), foreshadowing trying times to come.

On July 13, Monteith overdosed on a mixture of heroin and alcohol in his Vancouver, Canada hotel room, leaving show execs scrambling to figure out a way to deal with the sudden loss of its star. After his death, Glee had to figure out how to write Finn's character, Rachel's finance, out of the show. After much speculation, Ryan Murphy revealed to Deadline that Monteith's character would not die of a drug overdose.

Murphy told the publication, “At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered. But we have decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that. Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, ‘This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.’ That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way.”

Glee's third episode, entitled "The Quarterback," will see the characters told of Finn's death at the start and then will focus on how individuals grieve for their lost friend. It is reported that Lea's character will only appear in the final scenes.

Grab your tissues boys and girls, "The Quarterback" is guaranteed to be a cryfest. The new season of Glee begins Sept. 26.
