The “Glee” season that featured a tribute to a fallen cast member, a format change, a healthy heaping of backstage drama and a streak of series low ratings comes to an end with “The Untitled Rachel Berry Project.”

Set to air Tuesday, May 13, the episode will conclude the eventful fifth season while setting the stages for the series’ final year. In an interview earlier this spring, “Glee” co-creator Ryan Murphy announced the episode will feature a major development that initiates a time jump–and scenery change–for the sixth and final campaign.

FOX details the episode, which features an appearance from “Flight of the Conchords” star Kristen Schaal, in its official synopsis.

In the Season Five finale, Rachel meets a famous television writer (guest star Kristen Schaal), whose eccentric personality catches Rachel off guard. Meanwhile, Sam and Mercedes deal with the pressure of commitment as their careers take off, and the time has finally come for Blaine’s big showcase with June Dolloway (guest star Shirley MacLaine) at NYADA in the all-new “The Untitled Rachel Berry Project” Season Finale episode of GLEE airing Tuesday, May 13 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. (GLE-520) (TV-14 D, L)
