"Glee" creator Ryan Murphy says that the show will return for 3 episodes on September 26th. The first two episodes have already been written and the 3rd will be a tribute to the late Cory Monteith and his character "Finn." Hopefully this will help fans cope with Cory Monteith's death.
After the episodes air, the show will go on an extended hiatus. The producers are letting Lea Michele call the shots as to what is going on. She thinks the cast needs to take a break and just be together! Lea is being hit the hardest with this devastating loss and it’s nice they are letting her proceed with how she feels most comfortable.
Other cast members are also finding ways to pay tribute to their co-star. Chord Overstreet, who plays Sam Evans on the show, dedicated a song to Cory at his performance this weekend (see video below):
