The final season of Fox’s musical dramedy Glee will consist of 13 episodes, TVWise has learned.
The show’s final season is slated to launch at mid-season and had originally been given a 24 episode order as part of the two season renewal that the show swung back in 2013.
It was at the upfronts that Kevin Reilly, then Chairman of Entertainment for the network, revealed that the size of that order was likely to be trimmed.
At the time, Kevin Reilly said that the size of the order would depend on story requirements and that discussion would be had with Glee showrunner Ryan Murphy to determine the appropriate number of episodes. “We’re going to sit down and talk about how to end the show and how many that is”, Reilly said.
