Initially, it was said that widowed girlfriend Lea Michele was helping the Glee producers write off Finn Hudson’s character and she thought it would be great to use his death as a warning to others. She thought that Finn should die of a drug overdose to educate others on the dangers of doing drugs.
But now producer Ryan Murphy says that they changed their mind. They are still going to kill him off but won’t even explain how it happened.
Ryan said, “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.”
The 5th season of Glee returns on September 26th. They are doing a two-episode celebration with music from the Beatles, then the 3rd episode will deal with Finn’s death.
