The New Directions will belt out their final song in May 2015.

At a television event inside the Paley Center in Los Angeles last night, Glee creator Ryan Murphy confirmed that the series will come to an end after its upcoming sixth season.

He also explained that he and fellow producers will need to write a new conclusion following the tragic death of Cory Monteith in July.

"I always knew how it would end," Murphy said of the final season and how it was meant to be "designed around Rachel and Finn."

"I knew what the last shot was – [Monteith] was in it. 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."

Glee paid very emotional tribute to Cory Monteith last night, airing an episode that laid the character of Finn Hudson to rest.

It featured heartbreaking songs by the Glee cast as a whole and real-life girlfriend Lea Michele in particular, who somehow managed to belt out a version of "Make You Feel My Love."

Throughout the installment and soon afterward, various show stars and other celebrities reacted to the episode on Twitter, telling readers how to contribute to charity and also expressing their love for the late actor.

Here is a rundown of those famous Tweets:

Glee aired an episode unlike any in television history last night.

A few months after the tragic death of Cory Monteith via drug overdose, the series also killed off his character of Finn Hudson and dedicated an installment to both this fictional quarterback and the real-life actor behind him.

It was a moving tribute to both men.

And two songs in particular stand out from "The Quarterback." First, the cast opened the hour with "Seasons of Love" from Rent; then, later on, Lea Michele somehow summoned the courage to sing "Make You Feel My Life" in memory of her late ex.

Listen to both tracks above and visit our friends at TV Fanatic to download all Glee music from the episode.

Profits from these song sales will go to Monteith’s favorite charity, Project Limelight.

After news broke this summer that Cory Monteith had diedGlee fans began to wonder just how the show would go on in his absence.

RIP, Cory Monteith

Tonight, Glee paid tribute to the late star and his character in what might be one of the most emotional episodes of television we've seen in quite a long time. Here's a recap of the tragic action:

  • The episode takes place three weeks after Finn Hudson's funeral as the glee club gathers to say their own goodbyes. There was no mention of how Finn Hudson died, only that he had. 
  • In true Glee fashion, characters paid tribute to Finn in song. Amber Riley's vocals are sorely missed around the McKinley choir room.
  • Tina still can't get a reasonably story line. 
  • Burt and Carole were heartbreaking. (It was all heartbreaking.)
  • Without Finn around to tell him he's a good person, Puck has decided to join the Air Force. Santana plans never to return to McKinley. 
  • Considering the circumstances, everyone in the cast was amazing, especially Lea Michele as Rachel.

Over the first two episodes of Glee Season 5, the Fox hit has paid tribute to The Beatles.

But emotion will be turned up to an all-time television high next Thursday night when the series pays tribute to one of its own: Cory Monteith, who passed away from a heroin overdose in July.

The series gave viewers their first look at this farewell to Finn last night, airing a promo for the installment that features Lea Michele singing "Make You Feel My Love," along with numerous scenes of characters breaking down.

We doubt much acting was needed for this one, sadly. Watch now:

The Glee Season 5 premiere paid tribute to The Beatles, as numerous songs by this iconic band were covered by Kurt, Blaine and company.

It also featured a proposal… two characters coupling up… Santana getting a new job and a lot more. Read our Glee preview review for a full rundown.

But in two weeks, emotions are sure to run especially high as the series honors the late Cory Monteith. This star passed away on July 13 from a heroin overdose.

Creator Ryan Murphy has said his character of Finn will also be killed off, though it's unclear in what manner. It's bound to be a tear-filled, sentimental, unique hour of television and Murphy just released the first promotional photo in anticipation of the installment.

In what was a much anticipated return, Glee kicked off season 5 with a tribute to the Beatles! And just in case we didn't get enough of the Beatles, we'll have even more Beatles next week!

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. For the full Glee review, head over to TV Fanatic, but here's the rundown on what's been happening in the halls of McKinley since we last saw our New Directions.

  • Funny Girl: Rachel didn't get the role of Fanny Bryce. Or maybe she did. After overhearing the producers talking about how she was "too green" (Rachel. Green. See what I did there?) Rachel assumed she didn't get the part and wandered the streets of NYC singing "Yesterday." While the song was about Rachel's past and her quest for fame on the bright lights of Broadway, the song felt very much about the late Cory Monteith. 
  • Here Kitty Kitty: Kitty and Artie are an item. And Kitty's...nice? At first she wants to keep it a secret to protect her street cred since there's a new Cheerio on the pyramid, but when Tina calls her out for being emotionally abusive, Kitty says she's ready to let the world know that she and "Arthur" are a thing. Oddest pairing ever.

Fox's extended trailer for Glee Season 5, kicking off this coming Thursday night, predicts an event filled with Beatles Mania! Just ask star Darren Criss.

The actor makes it clear that his character Blaine has certain, long-term intentions for Kurt, while also talking up the "evil' Sue Sylvester we'll see this fall.

Also on tap? An opportunity for a New Directions dynasty. Will the group win yet another Nationals title? How will Cory Monteith's death be addressed?

Multiple Beatles-themed episodes will air long before we find out the answer to the former, and many tears will no doubt be shed when it comes to the latter.

Perhaps the following news will distract folks from the alleged Demi Lovato nude photo scandal:

On the red carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday night, Naya Rivera confirmed that Lovato will recur on Glee Season 5, providing new information on the singer's upcoming role.

“She’s playing my [character Santana’s] love interest so I’m very, very excited about that," Rivera told reporters, adding that she will sing at least one track with Lovato and joking that "we're bringing her to the dark side."

Demi Lovato Promotes The X Factor

Demi is expected to film Glee episodes in between judging responsibilities on The X Factor, with earlier reports stating she will portray a struggling artist in New York City who also croons a duet with Adam Lambert.

Cast members on that series, of course, continue to struggle with the death of Cory Monteith.

A tribute episode will air in his honor this fall, with Glee returning on Thursday, September 26.
