Glee creator Ryan Murphy has revealed new details about the upcoming “Glee” tribute episode for Cory Monteith.

At one point, they were going to tie it in with Cory’s real-life story and have his character pass from an accidental drug overdose, but Ryan now says he’s going in a different direction.

And they might not even say how his character dies.

They want to make the episode a celebration of his character’s life and not focus on his death. They’ve started shooting the memorial episode and Ryan said it’s a very heartfelt look at how young people grieve.

They know it’s not just the cast and crew grieving, but a lot of young fans grieving as well and they want to make sure they handle it in the right way.
