When Glee returns for its sixth and final season, the series will be returning to its high school origins.
Series co-creator Ryan Murphy recently told TVLine that season six will get back into its initial focus on arts in school:
“We’re working on the last season now, and it really feels like it’s getting back to its roots, which I love. I’m sort of reinvigorated about it. It’s getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools… I think people will like it.”
Taking Murphy’s comments into consideration, it is quite possible that season six of Fox’s musical comedy will return to Lima roots for one final hurrah back at McKinley High.
After the original core class gradated back in season three, the series began splitting its time between the characters back at McKinley High and New York, before abandoning McKinley High completely halfway through season five.
How the show will shift its focus back to McKinley High, seems to be the bigger question. Just this April, Murphy informed the press that season six would jump forward in time and center on a small handful of the series’ core characters, so let the speculation begin.
