There's more sad news for Glee fans.
Ryan Murphy, co-creator of the series, announced that the next season of the show (its sixth) will be its last, Variety reports.
Murphy, 47, also said that Cory Monteith's unexpected death has caused him to rethink the ending of the show, which he had planned around the Rachel/Finn romance.
"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," Murphy said to TVLine.

Glee said goodbye to Finn Hudson and Cory Monteith Thursday night with an hour that was very moving – how could it not be? – but also very kind.
Kind because a viewer's buttons were never pushed. Whatever you felt just seemed to come, scene by scene, as everyone found a way to articulate their grief. And, of course, to sing.
Monteith, who was only 31 when he died July 13 from a mixture of alcohol and heroin, had already shot appearances in the season's first two episodes – those, a salute to the Beatles, were re-edited leading up to last night's memorial. They constituted one of the most melancholy salutes to the Beatles I've ever heard, with Monteith's death coloring everything.

Although Glee's Lea Michele admits it feels like "I've lost two people, Cory and Finn," the actress says the tribute episode to her on- and off-screen love Cory Monteith "was very therapeutic."
"We had a beautiful memorial for Cory in the auditorium, and some of the cast members sang and people spoke about him," a stoic Michele, 27, told TV Week Australia. "It only felt right that we would do the same thing for Finn."
But did the actress ever consider leaving the hit show after the tragic death of her former boyfriend, 31, in July?

For Jane Lynch, coping with the loss of Glee costar Cory Monteith is an ongoing struggle.
"I think that grieving comes in waves," she told PEOPLE at the Ciroq-sponsored Variety & Women in Film pre-Emmy event in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Friday. "Every day that I go to work, I walk past his trailer, and every time I look at a call sheet I see that his name is not on there. Every time I do a scene with the kids I realize that he's not there, so you're reminded in every moment. It's hard, and it feels like such a waste."
But while Lynch admits "it's tough" as she and her castmates continue to mourn the 31-year-old – who died from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol this past July – her heart goes out to his girlfriend and costar, Lea Michele.
