It’s only been a month since Cory Monteith died tragically from a drug overdose and the cast and creators of Glee are still working on the episode where they have to explain his character, Finn Hudson’s death. Show creator Ryan Murphy spoke to Deadline and told them that it has been decided that Finn won’t die of an accidental overdose like his portrayer;
“There were a lot of things that we had to decide — how are we going to deal with his death? At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered. But we have decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that. Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, “This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.”
I love that the cast and creators of Glee have been so open about celebrating Cory and honoring him on the show. It must be so hard for all of the cast and crew to film this episode but I love that fans of the show will be able to see something that will be a celebration of his life. Looking forward to it.
