It’s always hard to say goodbye.

After six successful seasons, co-creator Ryan Murphy has decided to part ways with Glee at the end of next year.

Following last week’s very emotional memorial episode for Cory Monteith and his character Finn Hudson, Murphy said it’s been very difficult to move on with the show.

“It’s really f–king hard. It’s hard. It’s hard everyday. It’s hard in the writer’s room. It’s hard on the set. It just feels like . . . it’s hard too because we’re getting ready to wrap up a series. We’re going to do one more year and that’s it. So the last scene and the last stories were always very Cory heavy.”

Murphy says it is even more difficult to change the direction of Lea Michele‘s character, Rachel Berry.

“Well, you know, it’s very sad. I just said the whole end year of the show, which will be next year, was designed really around Rachel/Cory, Finn story. I knew how that would end. I knew what the last shot was — he was in it. So when a tragedy happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what else you want to do, so we’re figuring that out now.”
