If there lease is for a fixed term you are liable to pay the money until the end of the term. The landlord is also responsible to try and find another tenant to reduce the losses but if the cannot find someone then you have to pay. If they and someone for less rent than you were paying then you have to pay the difference for the period.
I am sorry I cannot give you anything more positive.
This is all in the lease document that you have signed.
