As OKMagazine.com previously reported, Glee creator, Ryan Murphy announced they will be dedicating the October 10th episode of the upcoming season to Monteith, 32, who was discovered dead in his Vancouver hotel room on July 13th—an autopsy revealed he had died from an overdose of heroin and alcohol.
“[October 10] is the episode where [Cory’s character Finn] will be written off and will deal directly with drug addiction and with the circumstances surrounding Cory’s death,” Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly told reporters Wednesday.
When asked if Finn will die from an overdose, Reilly said, “No. I can’t confirm that at all. We’re going to speak to that issue with the [Public Service Announcements].”
The cast has filmed a number of PSAs, which will air throughout the episode, where they will address the issue of drug addiction.
Meanwhile, Cory’s heartbroken girlfriend, Lea Michele, returned to work on Thursday.
“First day of glee today..And at my first wardrobe fitting for Rachel Berry for Season Five! I’ve missed her so much (heart),” the actress tweeted.
