"Well, I think this came about because Chris is obviously a very talented writer and we just thought, wouldn’t it be interesting for somebody like Chris who does have a knack for writing and storytelling to be able to do something fresh on the show, and we’ve always had that tradition, you know, we’ve always had that open door that if you were interested in directing… Matt Morrison was interested in trying out, and we let him take an episode that he did so well on. So that’s always been something to me that if anybody has said oh, I’m interested in trying that, let’s do that, and Chris obviously has an interest and a knack for writing, so we gave it a whirl, and it turned out really, really great. I think they’re still shooting some of the episode. I think there’s a couple more days on it, and I know he talked about the casting so I don’t need to, but it was fun. He was very involved in all that stuff which I think was interesting for him. It was an interesting thing to have an actor, playing a character, getting to write an episode about that character, so it turned out really well and I think everybody’s really happy with it, and I hope next year that he would want to do another one. I think it would be great, and maybe he would even want to direct it."

— Ryan Murphy, [Could you talk about Chris Colfer’s episode that he wrote?]

Glee cocreator Ryan Murphy has made it official: The show won’t go on beyond next season.

At a Paley Center event honoring FX Networks Wednesday night, Murphy confirmed that Season 6 will be Glee‘s last. He also revealed that Cory Monteith’s death has forced him to devise a completely different endgame.

“The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn’s story,” he told reporters. “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.”

"He’s never been formally trained and I just thought he was so talented and gifted and unusual. I’ve never seen anyone who looks like him or acts like him or sounds like him. You’d think he’d been at Julliard for six years but he hasn’t.”
