‘Glee’ release season five teaser

Hit musical TV ‘Glee’ has seen its fifth season teased in a new video clip. The taster is the first since one of the show’s stars, Cory Monteith, tragically died last month.

Monteith is not seen in the upbeat clip, and producers have said that his beloved character Finn Hudson will be killed off the show. However, they also revealed that the character will not die in the same manner as Monteith, of an overdose of heroin and alcohol.

"At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose,” said show creator Ryan Murphy. “That was something we had considered. But we have decided that we're not going to have him pass from that.

"Basically, what we're doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died. 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."

Fellow cast members Chris Colfer and Darren Criss have both commented on the struggles of returning to the show after Monteith’s death, with Criss saying the show is “picking up the pieces”.
