Glee - Season 5 - Cory Monteith tribute episode details

Fox’s entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly today confirmed that the planned Cory Monteith tribute will air in the third episode of Glee this coming season, which is slated to air Oct. 10. “That is the episode where Cory’s character will be written off and will deal directly with drug addiction and with the circumstances surrounding Cory’s death,” he said. That does not mean Cory’s character Finn Hudson necessarily dies of a drug overdose, Reilly cautioned. But series co- creator Ryan Murphy will shoot PSAs with the cast that will air during the episode. They will speak to the incident and drug addiction, Reilly said. Additionally, the proceeds from the music in the episode will be used to set up a fund for Monteith. “It is a celebration and really sad of this really vibrant kid,” Reilly said. The Cory Monteith tribute will follow the two-part Beatles- themed Glee season opener, which had already been in the works. After Episode 3, Glee goes on hiatus for baseball “as a natural break to reset,” Reilly said.
