Production on season 5 of Glee has officially begun, so now more than ever is when the cast has to come together to remember Cory Monteith, who passed away on July 13 of a legal combination of heroine and alcohol. And while tons of Cory’s co-stars have released their own statements on his death and are remembering him in their own, personal ways, Fox just released this sweet, albeit short, video that they refer to as the “Cory Monteith Memorial Card” which highlights some of Cory, aka Finn Hudson’s, most memorable moments on the show.
Watch the video above to see the touching tribute, and be sure to tune into the episode honoring Cory’s memory which will be the third episode of the season, and is scheduled to air in October. And speaking of the new episodes, Lea Michele has already started recording her songs for them, tweeting this touching message on Monday:
Couldn’t have picked a more beautiful & perfect song to start the year with..🎶

The first two episodes of season 5 are Beatles themed, according to People, but episode 3 will deal with Cory’s death head-on and the writers plan on writing Finn off the show in a storyline centered around drug abuse. Seems fitting (and sad).
