Cory Monteith In Memoriam: His Best Career & Life Moments!
Glee Premieres in May 2009
The first episode of Glee was aired on May 19, 2009 to much fanfare and critical acclaim. The first season of the series then kicked off in September that year, but before it did, the main cast members all embarked on a mall tour across the United States to promote their show. Cory, along with co-stars Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Dianna Agron, Kevin McHale, Jenna Ushkowitz, Mark Salling, and Amber Riley, met their fans for the first time and screened the second episode of the series.
Glee was a ratings hit for Fox from the beginning and when it returned for the second half of its first season in April 2010, the ratings went through the roof for the show.
The show recently finished up its fourth season and already has orders for two more seasons. The fifth season is set to premiere in September 2013.
