Eleven little words can spread fast!

Ryan Murphy seemed to officially confirm the end of Glee after season six, telling TVLine, "The final year of the show, which will be next year..."

However, E! News can report that nothing has been decided regarding Glee's fate.

While it is likely that Glee will end after season six—something Fox boss Kevin Reilly pointed out in August—multiple sources from the show, studio and network tell E! News that Glee's end date has not been decided, and it's possible the show could live on.

The network currently has an order through season six, and the studio and network will decide at a later date if Glee goes into year seven and beyond.

Murphy said those eleven little words (which could have used a "probably" or a "maybe") while explaining that Cory's death has forced the writers to think about an alternate ending for the series.

"I knew what the last shot was," Murphy told reporters Wednesday night. "[Cory Monteith] was in it. I knew what the last line was, [Lea Michele] said it to him. So when a tragedy like that happens you sort of have to pause and figure out what you want to do, so we're figuring that out now."

Murphy believes he has come up with an ending that is "very satisfactory" and "kind of in [Cory's] honor, which I love."

Last week, Glee's Cory Monteith tribute "The Quarterback" brought in big ratings: 7.4 million total viewers and a 2.8 in the demo. That marks a 75 percent rise from the previous episode, the best ratings of the season and Fox's best demo numbers since September 2012.

When and how do you think Glee should end?
