On Thursday, Fox released the first footage from next week’s Glee tribute to Finn Hudson, and it’s easy to see why executive producer described shooting the episode as “incredibly difficult.”
The promo, which aired immediately after this week’s prom-themed installment, shows McKinley High (past and present) coming together to mourn their fallen friend.
“What you will see in the episode is what really happened,” Murphy shared with reporters early Thursday. “Almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance… because the actors and the crew had a really hard time shooting it. Everyone went into it with a lot of love.”
