‘Glee’ Season 5 Delayed Following Cory Monteith’s Death

Glee-Season-5
FOX

Following the untimely passing of ‘Glee‘ star Cory Monteith, producers and writers of the Fox hit were left scrambling with how to deal with the loss of a major character.

While writers held emergency meetings on dealing with the loss of Finn, one definite move has been made: Season 5 will start later than originally planned.

Just Jared reports that the cast and crew of the series will take a break to mourn Monteith’s death and cope with the loss before returning to the set. ‘Glee’ is set to resume filming for Season 5 in August. The fifth season of the show is set to premiere on Thursday, Sept. 26.

Casting shakeups — aside from the obvious loss of Monteith — were already slated for Season 5. Dianna Agron, Heather Morris and more regulars were dropped from the cast, while they do have options to return in a guest starring capacity. Meanwhile, two new characters, a “cute and quirky” 20-something named Jenny and a new African American student, are on the table.
