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.
