Ryan Murphy confirms Finn’s death in Glee

Cory Monteith’s character to die before show takes hiatus.

Cory Monteith

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that Cory Monteith’s character Finn Hudson will die in the series.

Following Monteith’s tragic death, Murphy has stayed silent but in an interview with TVLine he opened up about how the actor’s death will impact on the show. During the interview he confirmed that the show will return with a two-part Beatles tribute before paying tribute to Monteith and dealing with Finn’s death in the third episode.

After the tribute episode the show will go on hiatus whilst the writers take time to reconfigure the show without Monteith. There is no confirmation as of yet when the show will return past its first three episodes.

Murphy revealed, ‘ultimately, we made no decisions without consulting Lea (Michele). [Executive producer] Brad Falchuk and I talked to Lea and really asked her what she wanted to do. We laid out every possible option. And she was very adamant that she thought it was best for the cast and crew to get back together sooner [rather] than later so that mortgages could be paid and people could take care of their families. Cory was so beloved that she felt people really needed to be together in this time.’
