The Future of ‘Glee’ After Cory Monteith’s Death [VIDEO]

Producers of ‘glee‘ may have considered cancelling the popular series.  But thank goodness the show goes on.

Now fans of Cory Monteith and ‘glee,’ are wondering what to expect when the FOX-TV favorite returns in the Fall.  Corey passed away after mixing heroin and alcohol after partying with his friends in his native Canada.

What’s also shocking is Corey plays a drug addict in his final film, yet to be released.

In a recent interview published interview with show creator Ryan Murphy, there were a number of comments that have raised people’s eyebrows:
“When you’re faced with something so sad and so shocking, what do you do? Do we cancel the show? Do we start shooting in January? What do we do? Ultimately, we decided the best thing for everyone is to get back to work and be around people who knew him and loved him so that everyone can grieve together. The right thing to do for the show, at least at this point, is to have that character pass. When we do the tribute episode to that character, we’ll have to do it in a way where the cast members will not have to re-create feelings of grief that they’ve had this week — but do it in an upbeat way. If we can do this responsibly and help young people through these feelings, that’s the best that we can hope for.”

Shooting is to start again next month for a late September premiere.  It sounds as if the writers and producers won’t get into the the grieving of Finn Hudson character until possibly the third episode. 

Ryan told cast member Lea Michele (Rachel Berry on ‘glee‘), also Cory’s real-life girlfriend,  that it was OK if she decided not to return to the show.  The good news is, Rachel’s character will continue in the new season of ‘glee‘ with Lea.  No word on what the story line will be but I’m sure they are trying to figure that out now.
