Despite attempts to keep the trailer upbeat, a quick flash of Rachel, played Lea, sitting alone, makes it clear that this season will be tough.

Following the overdose death of actor Cory, Glee has had to find a way to write out his character Finn, out of the show.

 

A trailer for the new season of Glee was released on Tuesday showing Rachel, played by Lea Michele, trying to come to grips with her fiance Finn's death. The character was played by the late Cory Monteith, Lea's boyfriend

The third episode of this new season, entitled the Quarterback, will reportedly see the characters told of Finn’s death at the start and then focus on how individuals grieve for their lost friend.

Lea’s character will reportedly be spared a major role in the episode but will appear during the final scenes.

Similarly Lea’s character was largely missing from the new trailer, appearing only in a picture at the beginning and in the brief single frame of her sitting alone in her room in what appears to be funeral clothes.
