Programme creator Ryan Murphy has revealed that the cast will film an episode dealing with Hudson's death before taking a break to determine the future of "Glee", reports contactmusic.com.

"We will begin shooting in late August - the two shows we had already written, so that people can physically go back to work. We will then do an episode that will deal with the death of Finn's character and follow that with a long hiatus," deadline.com quoted Murphy as saying.

"I don't know exactly when we will come back, and we are trying out best with this attempt at damage control. We are planning a memorial for the cast and crew sometime this week on the Paramount lot," he added.
