"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy has revealed that there will be a memorial service on this season of "Glee" for the late Corey Monteith's character Finn, but they are not revealing anything about the show's episode, other than Finn will not die from an overdose, according to Thursday, August 15, reports from Vulture.com.
Murphy posted on Deadline some information about the upcoming episode writing:
"There were a lot of things that we had to decide — how are we going to deal with his death? At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered. But we have decided that we're not going to have him pass from that. Basically, what we're doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, "This episode is about a celebration of that character's life." That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way.
Murphy also says this will be a "very heartfelt look at how young people grieve." Oy, this is going to be sad."
Cory Monteith, who played heart throb Finn Hudson in the Fox hit "Glee," was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on on July 15 at the age of 31.
The official cause of Monteith's death as been ruled as an accidental overdose toxic mix of heroin and alcohol.
