Lea Michele, you are one strong gal! Despite the recent loss of her boyfriend and fellow Glee star Cory Monteith, who died from a mixture of heroin and alcohol at age 31, Michele is back “home,” working on the set of Glee. After all, there’s indeed no place like home.
Early Wednesday morning, Michele channeled her inner-Dorothy tweeting “Feels so good to be home… #GleeSeason5” with the above picture attached. So Gleeks get pumped, because the charming actress is back in action and filming the fifth season of the hit Fox dramedy.
Michele had kept hush-hush following the demise of the beloved Cory Monteith, but she then reached out to her fans on July 29th, tweeting, “Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support. Cory will forever be in my heart.” And just three days after, Michele popped back onto the Glee set to reprise her role as Rachel Berry.
Rumors circulated that the show would halt as a result of Monteith’s death, however Ryan Murphy, creator of Glee, recently revealed that Lea Michele made the decision to keep the popular series in motion. In addition, Murphy disclosed that the upcoming season of Glee will feature a tribute episode to Monteith.
Yes, it will definitely be difficult to tune into Glee without having Finn and his awkward dance moves to steal the screen, but we are still excited to check out Glee when it returns to Fox on September 26th.
