Unsurprisingly, the producers and writers of Glee need more time to determine how they’ll incorporate the untimely death of actor Cory Monteith into the popular musical-comedy series. The cast and crew of the Fox hit was scheduled to begin filming in late July and resume airing on September 19, but are now taking two more weeks to rewrite Monteith’s storyline, reports In Touch Weekly.
“Everyone on the show was told they were taking a two-week hiatus until [the producers] figure out what they want to do,” a source revealed to the magazine. “The writers and producers are trying to figure out what to do with Cory’s character because they need to rewrite everything now.”
Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the series, died Saturday at age 31 from mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol. Jane Lynch and other costars have spoken publicly about how they’ll miss the young actor.
