The Glee actor added that the writers did a “beautiful job,” and the cast is “working hard to make it the best tribute it can be.”

Shum revealed that after filming of the tribute episode wraps, the cast will be going on a hiatus.

“The writers are working on where to take the show from here, so we’ll all be taking some time off,” he said, admitting he’s not sure when the cast will reunite to film the rest of the season.
The episode will be the third in the fifth season and will be titled “The Quarterback.” Lea Michele will only appear in the final act of the episode. Fans can tune in to the episode on October 10th.
