It looks like "Glee" will take its final bow next season. The Fox drama/musical will end its run after six seasons, Ryan Murphy, the series' co-creator, said at a Paley Center for Media event honoring FX Networks on Wednesday night, according to TV Line. Murphy, who also runs FX's "American Horror Story," said "Glee" star Cory Monteith's drug-overdose death earlier this year forced him to rethink how to close out the show.
