It will be some time before the full truth of 'Glee' star Cory Monteith's untimely death this weekend comes to light, but the conversation will soon turn to talk of 'Glee' season 5 production, which had been scheduled to begin next week. It remains to be seen how the cast and creative team will approach the tricky subject of Finn Hudson's absence, given the first two episodes of season 5 were written to reincorporate the actor into the show.
'Glee' fans well know that the series' season 4 set out to be one of change and transition, moving several characters into the New York setting while introducing a number of additional characters back in the primary setting of Lima, Ohio. Now, as the series prepares for its endgame, with no official season 5 renewal announced, 'Glee' has made a change it did not intend. Series star Cory Monteith has entered rehab for substance abuse, but how will it affect the end of the current season?
