‘Glee’ Final Season Order Officially Cut to 13 Episodes

Glee Final Season 6 Episode Order 13
FOX

Hacked tweets and diva rumors not withstanding, the sixth and final season of FOX’s ‘Glee‘ has been intriguing to follow for finally putting to rest Ryan Murphy‘s FOX musical drama, after falling so far from the zeitgeist. Now, the final episode order for ‘Glee”s swan song has officially been cut, putting season 6 at a mere 13 episodes.

Between diminished ratings, iTunes sales and escalating rumors of discord between the cast, it’s hard to pinpoint exactly what brought ‘Glee’ to the point of a reduced final season, as plans certainly hadn’t begun that way. Months ago, then-Fox president Kevin Reilly at least implied of the final season that the original 22-episode order would likely be trimmed, following consultations with series creator Ryan Murphy.

And while Chris Colfer’s abrubt exit announcement turned out to be the work of Twitter hackers, confirmed is that longtime series star Naya Rivera will be downgraded from series regular to recurring guest star. The sixth and final season has also been said to return to its Lima roots, rather than keep with the New York setting the fifth season had largely left Ohio behind for.

Not altogether surprising, given that the fifth season had been cut to 20 episodes in the wake of ratings dips that followed Cory Monteith‘s passing, but what say you? Will ‘Glee’ successfully wrap up by the end of a shortened sixth season this fall? How would you like to see the cast say goodbye?
