'Glee's' Final Season Trimmed to 13 Episodes

Glee Cast Season 5

Originally the final season of Glee was supposed to be a typical 22 episode season, however that has now been trimmed down to 13 episodes.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that series creator Ryan Murphy sat down with the network and studio 20th Century Fox Television to discuss the best way to end the series and decided that the story would be best told in one final run of 13 consecutive episodes.

This past season Glee continually hit series ratings lows. The series will return as pert of Fox's 2015 lineup.

Earlier this year Murphy, meanwhile, told The Hollywood Reporter that he has a final idea for the series, which will not be "New York-centric" after the series was uprooted from its former Ohio-set high school location.

"The final season is really its own story and its own location and while the New York stuff will be alive, the final season is not New York-centric at all," Murphy said at the time, noting there will be a time jump for the final episodes. "It really [will be] a lovely, fitting season that … dwells on the original people that were on the show and what happens to them and how they give back. That really is the last season .… We'll revisit some of the new kids that came and went. There's a return of the Jane Lynch-Matt Morrison characters in a big way. It's really interesting, very sweet, satisfying ending to the story."
