Fox has moved Glee‘s fifth season premiere to September 26, one week after its original September 19 date, because of star Cory Monteith’s death. The network also pushed back production, originally scheduled to start next week, to early August.

Previously, a Fox source disclosed that Glee‘s return could have been delayed as late as November, “to let everyone breathe” and avoid interruptions by Major League Baseball playoffs in October. Monteith died July 13 of a heroin and alcohol overdose; his body has since been cremated in Vancouver, after a private viewing with his mother, brother Shaun and Lea Michele, Monteith’s co-star and girlfriend.

Fox did not release any other details, including what’s in store for Monteith’s Glee character Finn Hudson.
