“Glee” will end in 2015, the show’s co-creator confirmed Wednesday.

The show had been renewed in the spring to continue for one season beyond the current one.

At a Paley Center event honoring FX Network, executive producer Ryan Murphy said the death of Cory Monteith forced him to come up with a different ending, reports

He said next season, “the final year of the show,” originally had been designed around the story of Finn (Monteith) and Rachel (Lea Michele).

“I knew what the last shot was, he was in it,” Murphy said. “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, so we’re figuring that out now.”

But he added, “I have a good idea.”
