FOX Airs Promo for Glee’s “The Quarterback”


After tonight’s latest episode of Glee, FOX aired a short promo for next weeks episode, “The Quarterback,” a farewell to Finn, and Cory Monteith. The emotional episode will premiere next Thursday at 9/8c. Along with the promo, FOX released the song list performed by the cast for next weeks episode: Seasons Of Love (Rent), I’ll Stand By You (The Pretenders), Fire and Rain (James Taylor), If I Die Young (The Band Perry), No Surrender (Bruce Springsteen), and Make You Feel My Love (Bob Dylan, covered by Adele).

Ryan Murphy stated earlier this month at a private screening for American Horror Story about the episode:

“And I struggled even working on it, because what you’re seeing is what they felt about not just Finn, but Cory, so I think it’s amazing performances across the board, and everybody went into it with a lot of love. What I loved about it is, you know when you write something like that, there’s no right way to do it, so we wrote it and we put people who were under contract to the show in it, and a lot of the actors contacted me and said, ‘I just love him so much — can I please be a part of it?’ So we put those people in. Iqbal [Theba], for example, who plays the principal and is now the janitor, was not written into that episode, but personally called up Brad and I and said, ‘For him, I want to be in it.’ It was rough. It was very rough. It was very rough with Lea [Michele] … but I’m very proud of it. I think the performances are quite stunning. People still are not over it — it’s still very, very difficult.”
