The co-creator of the FOX series says the show is heading back to its original root, which is the importance of arts education, in season 6.
"Glee" aims to end the series on a high note as the producers mull plans for its final season which airs in spring 2015. Instead of bringing something new, the sixth season is going to make a full circle.
After accepting Louis XIII Genius Award at Critics Choice Television Awards on Thursday, June 19, series co-creator Ryan Murphy told TV Line that the show would be going back to its original concept. "We're working on the last season now, and it really feels like it's getting back to its roots, which I love," he said.
Murphy added, "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."
Murphy previously confirmed that the sixth season would not be shot in New York. But as many of the "Glee" characters will walk down memory lane and will trace the roots and origins of their achievements and struggles, many of the shots will take place at McKinley High. Murphy also confirmed to TV Line that "there will be a lot going on in Lima."
