Shortly after the tragic loss of ‘Glee’ star, Cory Monteith, the show’s creators announced that the upcoming season would include a tribute episode to the young actor and his character, Finn. Most of the original cast members will be included, except for Dianna Agron and Heather Morris, according to The New York Post.

Agron’s character, Quinn Fabray, graduated from high school on ‘Glee’ at the end of season 3. Since graduating, she has only guest-starred in a handful of episodes, unlike fellow graduates Rachel (Lea Michele), Finn (Monteith), Santana (Naya Rivera) and Kurt (Chris Colfer).

In a recent interview with The New York Post, Agron shared that she wasn’t sure if she would be returning for the next season of ‘Glee’ at all.

"I think moving on might be the wrong choice of words because ["Glee"] is always going to be a part of me and with me and I would always go back," Agron said, while promoting her upcoming feature film, ‘The Family’.

"So it’s not necessarily about a departure. It’s about what it's imparted in me and what it's given me."

Original ‘Glee’ cast members Amber Riley, Mark Salling, Jayma Mays, Matthew Morris, and others will also appear in the Monteith tribute episode.

In a conversation with Deadline, ‘Glee’ co-creator Ryan Murphy, gave some insight into what we can expect from the tribute episode, expected to be the third episode of fifth season.

"Basically, what we’re doing in the episode is we are not telling you yet, or maybe not at all, how that character died," Murphy said.

"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."

Cory Monteith died of a drug overdose in his Vancouver hotel room in July.
