After the sad news that season six of ‘Glee’ would be the last, HollywoodLife.com has exclusively learned that the cast is actually happy with this decision.
Ryan Murphy broke the hearts of Gleeks everywhere on Oct. 16, when he announced that after Cory Monteith‘s tragic death, he would be ending the show next year after season six. Lea Michele, who played Cory’s on and off screen love, actually completely agrees with the decision.
Lea Michele Thinks Ending ‘Glee’ Be Good For The Cast
“Everyone within the cast is on board for the show to end after season six,” a source close to the cast told HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
“Lea wants a movie career and she wants to make sure that the other people in the cast get enough time to save some money and spend some time to figure out what to do with their careers,” the source said.
‘Glee’ Cast Doesn’t Want ‘To Overstay Their Welcome’
On top of that, with the show’s ratings dropping within the past year, the cast agree that maybe it’s time to call it a day after such a successful run.
The tribute episode for Cory earned a whopping 7.4 million viewers — the highest numbers since September 2012. However, the episode before it, which paid tribute to the Beatles, only had three million viewers — the show’s lowest number ever.
“They don’t want to overstay their welcome and make the show impossible to watch,” the source told us. “But with that, Fox makes tons of money off the show with the music and would love to have it go longer but they are happy they have them till the end of season six as they thought they would prematurely have to end the show after Cory’s death. So everyone seems to be winning.”
So, HollywoodLifers — are you surprised about the end of ‘Glee?’ Do you wish it would continue?
