Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, intimated that Michele had been a driving force in ensuring the Glee cast had an opportunity to pay tribute to Monteith in the next season. He spoke of Michele with admiration, saying she had handled the tragedy with "humanity and grace".

The decision too has been made regarding Monteith's character in Glee, Finn Hudson, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter Murphy said "the right thing to do for the show, at least at this point, is to have that character pass".
