The official synopsis reads as follows:

Glee goes back in time to find out why the original members of New Directions initially signed up for glee club. Then, Glee flashes forward to see how the character's lives have progressed five years down the road

McHale, who plays Artie in the series, spoke with Access Hollywood Live about the Glee series finale, and the Cory Monteith tribute.

"I'm satisfied. I was reading it and the last two episodes are airing back-to-back, so it's kinda this double whammy all at the end," he said.

"I think [viewers will] be happy. I was happy. They tie up a lot of great storylines and you get to see these people in a new light and follow their journey. These characters have gone through a lot and I think there's a good payoff at the end."

The actor also talked about how the show would honour Cory Monteith, who played star quarterback Finn Hudson in the series and who died unexpectedly in 2013.

"I think [Finn] is always remembered and especially at a time like this at the very end, there will definitely be some sort of mention of him," McHale revealed. "He'll be involved in some way."

He said that ultimately he and the entire cast will be "a mess" when the finale airs, especially his co-star Lea Michele, who plays Rachel.

According to Tvline, "If the buzz trickling out of McKinley is to be believed, the Glee finale will be viewed as a (mostly) satisfying conclusion to the show's six-year run."

The final shot, in particular, is pretty near perfect, said the report, adding, "The five-year time jump that comprises much of the final act will allegedly find one character pregnant, but there's a twist. Also, Rachel will have bid adieu to single life, but the identity of the man on her arm may surprise you."
