Lea Michele Returning To ‘Glee’ After Cory Monteith’s Death
HollywoodLife.com exclusively learned that Ryan is allowing Lea to decide how Cory’s character Finn exits the show, and that she is returning to the show because she wants “some semblance of a normal life.”
A source close to show told us:
Lea will sign off on everything Ryan brings up to her before something is filmed. Ideas have been thrown around, and one of the reasons to wait to address the death is so the cast can heal a bit and they can also go through every possible idea to make it as poignant and respectable and good for the show as possible.
We are glad to hear that Lea is doing so well.
