“Cory is a beloved member of the Glee family and we fully support his decision to seek treatment,” 20th Century Fox TV said in a statement. “Everyone at the show wishes him well and looks forward to his return.”

The absence of Finn will reportedly be explained in an upcoming episode.

Monteith has opened up in the past about his struggled with drugs and alcohol, telling Parade in 2011 that he's "lucky to be alive."

In a statement, meanwhile, co-star and girlfriend Lea Michele sent her "love and support" to Monteith. TV Fanatic does the same.
