'Glee' creator Ryan Murphy reveals how the show was going to end before Cory Monteith's death

Ryan Murphy has revealed how he originally planned to end American hit musical drama 'Glee' before cast member Cory Monteith tragically died earlier this year. 

Monteith was found dead back in July from a heroin and alcohol overdose, and Murphy confessed that he had the perfect ending planned for both his character and Lea Michele's, who plays Rachel Berry on the show:

"Rachel was going to have become a big Broadway star, the role she was born to play. Finn was going to have become a teacher, settled down happily in Ohio, at peace with his choice and no longer feeling like a Lima loser."

Murphy then added that he had even visualised the scenes that woud bring the well-loved series to a final close: "Rachel comes back to Ohio, fulfilled and yet not, and walks into Finn's glee club. 'What are you doing here?' he would ask. 'I'm home,' she would reply. Fade out. The End."

In October, Murphy confirmed that 'Glee' will end for good after Season 6: "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. I knew what the last shot was - he was in it. I knew what the last line was - she said it to him."
