'Glee' Will Get 'Back To Its Roots' For The Sixth And Final Season

Co-creator Ryan Murphy says the sixth and final season of "Glee" will "get back to its roots."

I’m sort of reinvigorated about it," Murphy told TVLine, "It’s getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools… I think people will like it.”

Murphy admitted that throughout Season 5 he was distracted both by his work on HBO's "Normal Heart" and Cory Monteith's death, which Murphy addressed on the show, without revealing how the character of Finn had died.

The last season of "Glee" was also wrought with an alleged feud between Lea Michele and Naya Rivera, including rumors that the latter had been fired (quickly refuted both by a statement from Fox and these playful bikini photos).

The question of whether "Glee" can return to its original formula remains to be seen, but we sincerely hope the show is able to work through the rest of its issues in the form of a grand musical number.
