Fox Explains How They Will Deal With Cory Monteith’s Death In “Glee”

Fox Explains How They Will Deal With Cory Monteith's Death In "Glee"

When the news of Cory Monteith’s death was first reported on the Internet, the responses ranged from shock to grief to surprise. But one of the first questions asked [no matter how insensitive it may have seemed] was how Glee would deal with his death, considering what a large part Cory played in the show.

Fox did release a statement saying that Cory’s character, Finn Hudson, would be written out of the show in a way that managed to honor his character and send him off memorably. Ryan Murphy also previously stated, We will begin shooting in late August the two shows we had already written, so that people can physically go back to work. We will then do an episode that will deal with the death of Finn’s character and follow that with a long hiatus. I don’t know exactly when we will come back, and we are trying out best with this attempt at damage control.”

And now, Fox’s Chairman of Entertainment revealed in an interview,The third episode will write Finn out of the show. That episode will deal directly with the incidents involved with Cory’s passing and the drug abuse in particular.”

He doesn’t confirm whether that episode will directly deal with Finn passing away from drug abuse, but he does confirm that the episode will definitely deal with the overarching themes.

    I like that they are not just ignoring the elephant in the room.

    It’s good that they’re doing it right, they can’t ignore what happened.

    how about drug testing for the entire crew?

  5. Robyn Good says

    I agree it is a good idea to not ignore it. They may help a few people!

    Such a sensitive topic, hopefully they handle it properly

  7. Pamela says

    Shocked that Lea is back at work already.

  8. BusyBee says

    They shouldn’t bring it up on the show. Maybe have a short clip at the end talking about drug use and how to get help but to write it in the script is tacky IMO

  10. DD says

    I think drug testing is a great idea.

    I stopped following the show, so I don’t know what Finn’s character was like after he graduated…but does a drug related death fit with the story line?
