“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.

Glee Quotes

[to Kurt] You know, these Mounds bars are delicious, but you have to eat them. If you just hold them in your hand hoping that you might get to eat them one day, they're going to melt and you'll look like somebody just pooped in your hand. Don't let waiting for things to maybe work out with Blaine turn you into the guy who looks like somebody just pooped in their hand.

Blaine: Where's the bed?
Brittany: I removed it because when I imagined you two having sex I imagined a U-haul mounting a moped.
