Cory Monteith's 'Glee' Tribute Episode Teased On Twitter

Posted: Updated:

"Glee" is preparing to say goodbye to Cory Monteith. Co-creator Ryan Murphy tweeted a first look at the tribute to the late Monteith and his character Finn Hudson.

Following the two-part Beatles tribute, "Glee" will say goodbye to Monteith and his character Finn with a special episode on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 9 p.m. ET. The show will kill off Monteith's character, but likely never say how he died.

"Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died," Murphy told Deadline. "The idea being, how somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid, but we say very early on in the episode, 'This episode is about a celebration of that character’s life.' That might be weird for some people, but it felt really exploitative to do it any other way."

"Glee" airs Thursdays, 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
