According to Deadline, the final season will include a total of 24 episodes, two of which are left over from season five. After the unexpected and tragic passing of Cory Monteith, the creators’ decided to cut two episodes from the current season. The original plans for the final season, and big final scene, also had to change after Monteith’s passing. 

Murphy talked about what has changed for the final scene saying it “is about Rachel and Mr. Schue, and it returns them to their origins, their roots, how they felt about each other when they were much younger and everything was idyllic. I think the ending has to be a reflection and a celebration of how far all those characters have come.”
