Fox Exec Says Season 6 Will Be Glee’s Last

Glee Season 6The show will go on at “Glee” — but only for the next two years. According to FOX entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly, the musical series is set to end after Season 6 (planned for 2014-2015).

Obviously, the recent death of star Cory Monteith is a factor in any discussion about the future of “Glee,” but that might not be the main reason that “Glee” has an apparent end date. Reilly addressed the issue when talking to reporters at the 2013 TCA press tour and cited story reasons as the main motivation. “I would not anticipate it goes beyond two more seasons,” Reilly explained. “Never say never, but there’s two very clear arcs to get to there and conclude. If we discover a new crop of kids and there’s some breakout, who knows? But right now, we’re thinking two seasons.”

A timeline with two more seasons would be just about enough to graduate the current batch of high-school singers, while the older kids can get their careers going. Season 5 will still be greatly affected by the loss of Monteith, with two episodes bringing back overall plots before facing the death of the Finn character in episode 3.
