Rumors of an episode honoring Cory Monteith have been confirmed by co-creator Ryan Murphy. He released this statement explaining the future of Glee.
“We had two episodes that we finished writing in May that were our Beatles tributes that we’ve been working on for four years, so those were already done. With some slight modifications, we decided, ‘OK, let’s shoot these. Let’s get people back and then let’s take the time to write and deal with a tribute to Cory,’ which I guess we’re going to do for episode three and then after that episode airs, we’re going to go off the air for awhile and take a little hiatus and figure out what is the future of the show … we want people to feel that we have, not only a memorial for Cory, but a memorial for Finn.”
The premiere of season 5 has been postponed by only one week thanks to Monteith’s girlfriend and cast member, Lea Michelle.
“She was very adamant that she thought it was best for the cast and crew to get back to together sooner [rather] than later so that mortgages could be paid and people could take care of their families,” Murphy told TVLine.com
Murphy opened up about Monteith’s alleged drug use stating that he always told him his life was more important than some T.V show. When Michele wanted to get her boyfriend help, Murphy was on board. “You’re not going to film. You’re going to get in a car right now and get help that I and [Executive Producer] Brad [Falchuk] and Lea and I arranged,” he said.
Sounds like the season will be very emotional. Most of the cast wanted the show to go on, as it should. I’m glad to see that the writers will be taking a proper approach when dealing with such a sensitive situation. Hopefully, the ratings for the season of Glee won’t be affected to much by the hiatus they are all taking to cope with the loss and find a proper way to go about the upcoming episodes.

The reunion will be an unscripted special that will look back at the immense success of the show, which ran from 1994 to 2004. It also marks the first time all of the cast members have been on-screen together since the show’s finale.
The reunion was originally slated to air in May 2020 with the launch of the HBO Max app, but it was postponed several times due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A year later, the excitement is just as real!

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7
Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!
Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season.
Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.
DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX.
DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly.
She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.
It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.
Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.
I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”
Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.
Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew.
The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.
The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school.
We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
