Glee Finn Tribute Episode Promo

The first trailer is online for “The Quarterback,” the upcoming episode of “Glee” that pays tribute to the death of cast member Cory Monteith and his Finn Hudson character.

Show co-creator Ryan Murphy has previously indicated that, at one point, they planned to have Finn die from an accidental drug overdose. Instead, they have opted to leave the cause of death ambiguous, never explicitly stating how he died in the episode.

The clip comes just days after the coroner’s final report was issued on Monteith’s death back in July. The report confirmed it was due to a combination of intravenous heroin with alcohol (specifically two bottles of champagne).

The tribute episode is slated to air on Thursday, October 10th.
