Ryan Murphy Opens Up On Plans For 'Glee' In Wake Of Cory Monteith's Death
Glee creator, Ryan Murphy spoke exclusively with TVLine's Michael Ausiello regarding Cory Monteith's sudden death, the re-shaped plans for the new season, and how the Glee cast and crew--including Monteith's girlfriend and leading lady, Lea Michele are dealing with their loss.
Here's a short excerpt, but head over to TVLine for the full interview.
TVLINE: Will you address Finn’s absence in the first two episodes?
I don’t think so. We were supposed to be on in the fall with four episodes, and that’s just not going to happen. So we’re going to go on the air with two episodes and right now we’re writing the third episode, which deals with Finn’s death – which, you can imagine, is a very difficult episode to write. [It] has to be done very carefully and with a lot of taste and really making sure that it’s a tribute to Cory. Then, who knows? Maybe we’ll wait to shoot that. We really have to see how everybody feels… We’re going to take a long writers’ hiatus after that episode to refigure the season and continue to take care of the cast and crew and work on setting things up in Cory’s honor – scholarships, what have you – because that’s something we’re dedicated to doing. It’s just a crazy, really difficult, very emotional time. I think what we’re really trying to do is deal with it as a family, which is what that group of people is. Lea is obviously very grief-stricken but she’s also one of the strongest people I know. She wants people to be better and get back to work. So that’s what we’re going to do.
