Cory Monteith: 'Glee' to Continue, Writers Hold Emergency Meeting

Cory Monteith: 'Glee' to Continue, Writers Hold Emergency Meeting

After Cory Monteith‘s tragic death, it has been speculated what would happen to his hit television show Glee.

It appears as if that despite the 31-year-old actor’s death, the show will continue, according to TMZ. Writers from the show apparently met for an emergency meeting today.

Glee is definitely not canceled. If you look at the dollars and cents of the show and that it was very much an ensemble with new kids being added last year when some graduated. It’s clear that the show wasn’t about one character,” one source said.

“The producers and writers are taking time to meet and figure out how to best address this situation in the context of Glee. No decision has been reached about a script yet, as it’s still early,” they added.

Sorry, but without Finn and Finchel I will never watch Glee again. I will cherish the first 3 seasons and pretend the disaster of the 4th season doesn’t exist. For me Glee is over.

Tough situation for the writers. Maybe make it explained by a sudden accident (car,etc.) that claimed his life, to emphasize how we never know. If that is too downbeat for the show? Say he got an offer he couldn’t refuse working in another state?

the show needs to end .

@Tom: Then you are not a real fan. You’re going to only stick with one character and claim yourself as a fan then you’re ignorant. The show was his life. It was something he worked so hard for. To just let it go and end because he’s gone, it’s not what he would want. I think they will get through this and the show will continue because the show’s fans needs this. Especially right now.

Why are people acting like show is being cancelled. When one cast member leaves for any reason it no reason to shut down or cancel the show. The other cast members new and old are just as important as Cory. I can’t wait to start watching S5 it will be nice to see some new blood on the show.

Seriously? The show is continuing. No Finn, no view for me. And trust me, I love them all BUT we ALL knew Finn was the heart of glee. End of story. Plus after last season’s crapola, RIB needs to stop.

@Tom: Fine don’t watch.

@Maria: Wrong he wasn’t the heart of the show. I only watched to see Jane Lynch and Matt Morrison.

I don’t know… the main draw to the show was Finn and Rachel. Now Finn is gone… I don’t know how Glee will survive and it’s really too bad because it is a well-written and inspirational show.

I think no matter what they do its gonna be difficult for everyone To have the cast act through their real friend and person they considered family’s death if they kill finn off will be painful. But if they make up some bull about Finn moving and living happily ever after that would sting too. Maybe they should just do a special episode w/ behind the scene stuff and favourite moments involving cory. Also, if the cast even wishes to speak about it only on camera, have them talk about their memories with him and end it there. Idk, probably dumb but it’s just an idea.

@Sherry:

Andd? Do you want a cookie or something? His character was the leader on the show and many cast members can tell you that it was the same way in real life. Just because you watched for those particular actors doesn’t change that fact.

Do you know what I think the worst part of it all is, is that Lea and all of the cast have to relive their emotions all over again when finn dies in the show. Thats gotta be tough

I’m sorry, but I don’t see how you continue. It’s sad. It’s tragic. It’s devastating for the cast and anyone that loved Glee. I just don’t see how they going back to the silly plot lines they were having last season after this.

I was never on board with a whole new cast of kids. They’re storylines aren’t as dynamic. The original kids were a big part of the show’s popularity, including Lea Michele and Cory Monteith. I wish that months down the road they’d have a memorial episode where they’d just talk about him, maybe sing for him.

Other than that, I don’t see many classy ways forward. What are they going to call Lea while she’s grieving this terrible, sudden loss and ask when she’ll be ready to go back to the show and pretend Finn moved away for good…. nobody can do that, including the audience.

this will bee last season, Sorry, but without Finn and Finchel I will never want watch Glee again. i think for ”Glee” this is the end. :( and you all think Lea come back after cory death??????

His Show? LOL….

Did they ever think to Lea?? Even if she wants to continue, i don’t imagine how she will film the scene of Finn’s death…
It’s so sad, i tried to watch an episode of season 2 yesterday and it was impossible, still unreal for me….

I don’t know, maybe they’re right but even I want to watch I can’t watch this show anymore. I love Glee but I know it will give me pain. I was a huge fan of Cory Monteith. I can’t even imagine Lea’s situation.

It’s just devastating!
But you know what would be even worse? Cancelling the show!
If the show was cancelled and the inspiration Cory worked so hard for is lost, he couldn’t rest in peace…
His tragic death should empower the hope and the light he left behind, so he can be remembered as a HERO and not as a martyr.

They need to end his character the way he ended his life. Dont sugar coat it. Show the real truth. Show how addiction is out there.

They’re right but this statement is so mean. He dead only 5 days ago not months. What will happen Lea Michele? I don’t think she wants to continue Glee, it must be so hard for her. I’m sorry but I just don’t get it. He was the co-star, I mean he was Finn Hudson. And no one like new New Directions members. They are so annoying. I watched last season for “old” New Directions members. If I will watch, I’ll just watch for Kurt. But I think I won’t. Sorry.

And I’m not a fan. I’m a Gleek.

I enjoy the ENTIRE CAST. Finn wasn’t on much of season 4. Yes, I will miss him and hope Cory is resting in peace. But I think the show should go on.

They have already done a shooting. They already did a car accident with texting. I guess they could have it be a car accident and the other driver be under the influence of drugs. But man.. that is tough.

I can’t see them pretending like he’s at school or something, the show is just too honest….. and everybody knows….. it’s quite a dilemma, but I would prefer no singing tributes – that could get way too smarmy. I think they will spend a few minutes addressing it, calmly and honestly, no need to preach about drugs because the message is so obvious, isn’t it.

I am so sorry about Cory, but in the business world you don’t cancel a show if one character leaves (by whatever means). This year the young kids are being given a bigger story line. Last year they had difficulty weaving them in and still keeping the graduated seniors. Plus I am so looking forward to the addition of Adam Lambert. This should be very interesting to see what part he plays and to hear his gorgeous vocals. He is the best vocalist I have heard and Lea said she wants to sing with him (even if it is off the show.) I realize she isn’t thinking about anything but Cory now, but life does go on. Somewhat changed – but it must go on. Be sad now but don’t give up on what you enjoyed. Surely there is more than one character you like on the show. Don’t penalize the producers for what happened. They definitely have their hands full right now. SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR THEM.
