`Glee` to do away with Cory Monteith`s character
Los Angeles: TV musical comedy-drama series `Glee`, which starred the late Cory Monteith, will write off the character essayed by the actor. It will also `deal directly` with the incidents involved in his sudden death in July.
Monteith`s character Finn Hudson will be written out of the show in the third episode, which will "deal directly with the incidents involved in Cory`s passing and the drug abuse in particular," Fox`s Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, said Thursday during a Television Critics Association panel here, reports people.com.
Reilly added that producer Ryan Murphy will also shoot a public service announcement with cast members in character, "as friends of Finn`s. They`re going to speak directly to the audience and I think they`re going to be very impactful."
Monteith was found dead July 13 in his room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver. He died due to an overdose of a mix of alcohol and heroin. He was 31.
`Glee` will resume production next week. Its first episode will air Sep 26.
