"The final year of the show, which will be next year, was designed around Rachel and Cory/Finn's story," Murphy said at the Paley Center in LA.
"I always knew that, I always knew how it would end ... I know what the last show was, he was in it. I knew what the last line was, she said it to him," he continued.
Murphy said when a tragedy such as Cory's death happens, it needs having to pause and figure out what to do next. "We're figuring that out now," he added.
While Cory's death have caused the unexpected end of the high-rating series earlier than planned, its third episode titled The Quarterback on Season 5, aired on Oct 10, which served as their tribute to Monteith, got 7.4 million viewers.
