Glee Season 5 Premiere Delayed Until September 26th

 

GLEE: logo.The sudden passing of Glee star Cory Monteith has forced show runners and Fox executives to delay the start of the show’s fifth season. Glee’s production will begin in early August and the first episode will air on Thursday, September 26th (9pm EST). This will presumably give everyone time to deal with Monteith’s death on July 13th, including writing his character – Finn Hudson – off the show.

No word has been released by Fox or Glee’s show runners about how they intend to handle this.
