According to Hypable:
At their Television Critics Association panel today in Los Angeles, Fox confirmed that Glee season 5′s Cory Monteith tribute episode will focus on drug abuse.
While he did not confirm whether or not the Finn character will die due to a drug-related incident, Fox president Kevin Reilly told reporters that Glee season 5 will “deal directly with the drug abuse.”
Glee fans had speculated this would be the case for two reasons. For one, the show has never taken on the subject of drugs like they have gay marriage, school shootings, and other hot button topics. Two, Monteith died of an overdose of heroin and alcohol
Following Monteith’s death, Fox pushed the season 5 premiere of Glee back one week to Thursday, September 26. The first two episodes will be Beatles-centric tributes. Episode 3 will be the Finn/Monteith tribute.
