Ryan Murphy Says GLEE Season 6 Will 'Get Back to Its Roots'; Reveals Details!


Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy spoke with TVLine at Thursday's Critics Choice Television Awards, where he received the Louis XIII Genius Award and revealed details of the upcoming sixth and final season of the FOX musical dramedy.

"We're working on the last season now, and it really feels like it's getting back to its roots, which I love," he told the site. "I'm sort of reinvigorated about it. 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."

The writer added that "there will be a lot going on in Lima" in Season 6, essentially confirming rumors that the majority of the season will be set at McKinley High.

Murphy also admitted that he "sort of stepped away from Glee a little bit" last season in order to focus his efforts on the HBO adaptation of Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart. In addition, the sudden and unexpected death of Glee star Cory Monteith created a tough challenge to both the cast and creative team. "To be honest with you, my heart kind of broke a little bit," he shared. "It was very difficult, not just for me, but for everybody."
