Following a series of Tweets, songs, Instagram photos and more in his honor, Glee cast members said goodbye to Cory Monteith today in a private ceremony.

Return of Finn

Details are scarce, but Fox has released the following statement:

"Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith. We thank the public for their continued outpouring of love and support as we grieve our friend and colleague during this difficult time.”

Due to the 31's tragic passing on July 13, production on series was delayed and the Glee Season 5 premiere was pushed back a week. It will now air on Thursday, September 26.

Murphy, meanwhile, has said the show will kill Finn off and the third episode of the season will be a tribute to both the actor and the character.

Glee Quotes

Rachel: This is what I wanted!
Sam: No, what you wanted was a second chance to get it right and Carmen just gave it to you. If you throw all that away you're going to be making the same mistake all over again

Finn: I seem to recall a rumor about a certain cheerleading coach at this school who once took horse estrogen and posed for Penthouse back in the day. So maybe I can just track that down and make a few copies and sell those to raise money for Regionals.
Sue: That's nothing but a rumor. But if that rumor were true, my Penthouse centerfold so groundbreaking that it completely redefined the term 'hirsute,' and gave birth unto these United States a pose so limber they named it the Regal American Not-So-Bald Spread Eagle, I promise you, my friend, you would never find it.
