Lea Michele will reportedly star in her own 'Glee' spin-off.

The hit show's creator Ryan Murphy is planning to launch a new show which will centre on the actress' character, Rachel Berry, and feature some of the other stars from the musical comedy in supporting roles.

The news comes just weeks after it was confirmed 'Glee' will end in 2015 after its sixth series.

A source told RadarOnline.com: ''This will be announced soon.

''They're making the deals now and it also presents a viable exit plan for the main 'Glee' series itself - in that some of its core cast would also migrate to the Lea Michele project as 'Glee' is showing signs of aging.''

'Glee' was rocked by the death of Lea's boyfriend Cory Monteith, who played her on-screen beau Finn Hudson, in July. The actor - who had a long history of battling drug abuse - succumbed to a deadly combination of heroin and alcohol in a hotel room in Montreal, Canada.

A spin-off featuring Lea, Cory, and co-star Chris Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel, was first considered in 2011 to coincide with their characters graduating from the fictional show's McKinley High School, but the project was quickly nixed.

Ryan said at the time: ''We were actively talking to actors, we were actively writing, we were actively getting ready to pitch. OK, here's the three actors, and they want to do it, so here's the story for them. Now that that has collapsed.''
