Glee Star Dead -- How Will Show Continue?

There was considerable industry speculation over the weekend about how Fox might move forward with the fifth season of Glee following the apparent drug-related death of one of its stars, Cory Monteith, on Saturday. The Los Angeles Times today (Monday) pointed out that Monteith had already been written out of the final episodes of the fourth season so that he could enter a rehab facility. Commented TheWrap.com: Though shocking and unexpected, Monteith's death doesn't pose an unprecedented dilemma for Glee. Series have returned after a star's passing, though the track record for continued success hasn't been good. Deadline.com TV analyst Lisa De Moraes observed that Glee creator Ryan Murphy has often incorporated real-life headlines involving celebrities into the show. This time, however, Murphy's Glee star IS the headline. And the question is, will a rewritten season-debut episode make use of that headline about the star of whom Murphy tweeted last season, 'I am so proud of Cory Monteith and love and support him 100 percent.'
