Glee doesn’t start production on season 5 until next month, but on Thursday, the close-knit cast and crew got together for a private memorial in honor of Cory Monteith, who was found dead July 13 at age 31.

“Today, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith,” Fox said in a statement to EW. “We thank the public for their continued outpouring of love and support as we grieve our friend and colleague during this difficult time.”

Following Monteith’s tragic death, production on the new season was delayed, as was the season premiere, which is now set for Thursday, Sept. 26, a week later than originally scheduled.

  1. My deepest sympathy goes to Cory’s family and friends! Such a great loss! My daughter started watching Glee and kept telling me I would love the show. During the second season I finally sat down and watched and absolutely fell in love with the show and the Rachel and Finn love affair! I sat down on a Saturday night with all of the glee episodes to get caught up. Watching Cory with his quirkyness and awkwardness was so adorable! He had so much going for him. The love you could feel with him and Lea when they were portraying Rachel and Finn was so real, that when I found out they were dating in real life I thought “Perfect”. They both seem to fix one another! To be so young and lose your love of your life is so tragic! I still have my love of 22 years! Can not imagine. Much love and prayers to his loved ones!
