Glee creator discusses the future of the show

Ryan Murphy, the creator of Glee, has spoken out about plans for the future of the musical TV show following the death of star Cory Monteith.

Murphy (pictured with Corey Monteith and Matthew Morrison below) has revealed that the cast plan to shoot new episodes in August before taking an extended break.

Ryan told Deadline: "We will begin shooting in late August the two shows we had already written, so that people can physically go back to work. We will then do an episode that will deal with the death of Finn's character and follow that with a long hiatus."

He continued: "I don't know exactly when we will come back, and we are trying out best with this attempt at damage control. We are planning a memorial for the cast and crew sometime this week."

Meanwhile producers of Glee have released a statement confirming the delay of new episodes.

Fox network stated that "in light of the tragic passing" of Corey Monteith, production would be deferred until early August and the show’s return has been postponed from September 19 to September 26.

Results of Corey Monteith’s autopsy were issued earlier this month. The toxicological analysis showed that the 31-year-old actor and singer died of "a mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol."
