The show must go on...or must it? The co-creator of "Glee" has announced that the show would be ending after the sixth season, due largely to the untimely death of a major castmember. 

Co-creator Ryan Murphy admitted to EW that the last season of the show was supposed to revolved around the love story between the late Cory Monteith's Finn Hudson and his real-life-and-onstage love, Lea Michele's Rachel Berry. However, when Monteith tragically passed away this summer, the show was sent into a tailspin, as new story lines were forced to be developed.

"I always knew how it would end. I knew what the last shot was -- he was in it," Murphy said of Monteith.

"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," he admitted.

Fox has yet to confirm the show's impending cancelation, though an exec at the network has noted that he "would not anticpate it would go on."

"Glee" paid tribute to Monteith last week, in a heart-wrenching episode that was viewed by millions, many of whom had never watched the show before.
