Dearest, Gleeks. You might just get to see Finn again.
It is being reported that, as a result of Cory Monteith’s untimely death, new episodes of Glee might feature old footage of the beloved star.
Though no official changes have been made to the upcoming season, a source revealed that the producers have allegedly been discussing ways in which to incorporate Cory and give fans a proper goodbye:
“There has been talk about writing the first few episodes around old footage of Cory from the show and actually have Finn be alive for a bit in order to lead into a more emotional goodbye — so it doesn’t feel sudden. The producers are weighing what the cast and his family think of the idea, and of course Lea Michele, to see if it’s at all plausible to attempt. Regardless, they want to do any angle with dignity.”
This wouldn’t be the first time a deceased cast member was included in a show’s new episodes like so. TNT’s Dallas chose to do the same when their star Larry Hagman passed away last November.
We’re not entirely sure how we feel about this, but we, more importantly, want to hear your thoughts on the matter.
Sound off below, Perezcious readers!
