HomeTVDramaIs Glee Taking a Production Hiatus Following Star’s Death? Luke Kerr July 18, 2013 Drama, Glee, Pop Confidential, TV 4 Comments It looks like production of the upcoming season of Fox’s Glee will be delayed for two weeks. According to In Touch, Glee producers gave everyone a two-week hiatus, while they figure out how to rewrite the show after the saddening death of star Cory Monteith. "The writers and producers are trying to figure out what to do with Cory's character because they need to rewrite everything now," an insider tells In Touch. Filming had originally been scheduled to begin at the end of July. Reportedly, there is also concern for how Monteith’s girlfriend and Glee co-star Lea Michele will be able to recover. 4 Responses Katiebug9624 July 19, 2013 No matter how you slice is this is just so so sad. From what I read Cory had tried so hard to beat his addiction and now that he is gone Lea had to view the body in Canada surrounded by bodyguards…this man who she had worked with and then dated for almost two years so many memories on the Glee set also. I wouldn’t be surprised if they put some veterans back on contract and I wouldn’t be surprised if Lea called it quits.

We get attached to these people that come into our tv screens and especially the ones that are talented and seem to be genuine. I have no doubt that Cory was trying his best to stay clean and sober. I know what that must be like. Staying clean in that environment must be like dieting at a thanksgiving dinner. There is all that food and mom is trying to get you to eat a piece of pumpkin pie. I hope they come up with something appropriate and special to wrap up Finn’s story. I also hope that Lea will continue with the show, although it will take a lot of internal strength to push through this. Whatever her decision, I hope that she has a long career and can make a happy life for herself after this. She is very talented and deserves good things.
