Glee Boss Ryan Murphy Shares First Details of Finn Tribute Episode, Reveals How He Won't Die



Art may be imitating life on Glee — with the passing of protagonist Finn Hudson in the wake of leading man Cory Monteith‘s death last month — but executive producer Ryan Murphy says it won’t be an exact replica.

“At one point, we were going to have his character die after an accidental drug overdose — that was something we had considered,” Murphy revealed in an interview with Deadline. “But we have decided that we’re not going to have him pass from that.”

In fact, viewers may never learn the exact circumstances of Finn’s death, the showrunner added. “How somebody died is interesting and maybe morbid,” Murphy continued, “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.”
