'Glee' family gathers to remember Cory Monteith
Glee doesn’t start production on season 5 until next month, but on Thursday, the close-knit cast and crew got together for a private memorial in honor of Cory Monteith, who was found dead July 13 at age 31.
“Today, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith,” Fox said in a statement to EW. “We thank the public for their continued outpouring of love and support as we grieve our friend and colleague during this difficult time.”
Following Monteith’s tragic death, production on the new season was delayed, as was the season premiere, which is now set for Thursday, Sept. 26, a week later than originally scheduled.
