Glee Season 5 gets UK Airdate

Glee Season 5Sky TV have announced that the Fox musical comedy Glee will return to British screens on Sky 1 from Friday October 4th at 8pm, eight days after its US debut on Thursday 26th September.

The fifth season will begin with a two part special episode focused on UK super group The Beatles (Part one called “Love Love Love” and Part two called “Tina in the Sky with Diamonds”). This will be followed by a special episode that deals with the death of Cory Monteith’s character, Finn Hudson. The episode titled, The Quarterback, will also deal with aspects of the star’s drug and alcohol abuse and will also feature special public service announcements from the show’s creator Ryan Murphy and various cast members. Proceeds from the episode’s music will also go to a special fund that has been created in the actors’ name.

Following the special episode the show will then go on hiatus for several weeks until after the US baseball postseason has ended and from there it is hoped the show will have an uninterrupted run of seven episodes.

What do you think of the news of the UK release date for Season 5 being only eight days after its US bow? Do you think the show will survive without Finn? Add your thoughts in the comments below.
