Following the tragic death of Cory Monteith, many were left wondering will the Glee series continue or will it be cancelled?

It looks like the cast and crew have come to a decision to continue on with the series, addressing Monteith’s death in the third episode.  The first two episodes will take the usual Glee approach with a fun and celebratory tribute to the Beatles.

Co-creator Ryan Murphy explained, “Cory’s character will be written off and [it] will deal directly with drug addiction and the circumstances surrounding Cory’s death,” continuing, “The right thing to do for the show, at this point, is to have that character pass.  When we do the tribute episode to that character, we’ll have to do it in a way where the cast members will not have to re-create feelings of grief that they’ve had [following Monteith's death] – but do it in an upbeat way. “

In conjunction, the cast will produce a public service announcement about the evils of drug addiction.  Murphy has said he was prepared to cancel Glee in the wake of Cory’s accidental overdose, but he didn’t upon Lea Michele’s insistence.

The entire cast is returning to Los Angeles this weekend.  The scripts have been rewritten and the first day back to work is Monday with grief counselors on set.
