Cory Monteith has checked into rehab for substance abuse issues, his rep tells TVGuide.com.
The Glee star "voluntarily admitted himself into a treatment facility for substance addiction," his rep said. "He graciously asks for your respect and privacy as he takes the necessary steps towards recovery."
There's no new episode of Glee airing Thursday night, but behind the scenes, Feb. 28 is a big day for the Fox musical comedy.
"I actually have a meeting tomorrow morning at 11 where I have to pitch out not only the end of this year but the next year," co-creator and executive producer Ryan Murphy told TVGuide.com Wednesday at a Paley Center event honoring his work. "I think what I want to do — and I hope it is liked by the other people who control my paychecks — is... something that we've never done before.

But in just a few short months, a whole new crop of New Directions seniors will be turning their tassles.
During a visit to the Fox musical dramedy on Wednesday, executive producer Dante DiLoreto revealed the McKinley High Class of 2013 will include Blaine (Darren Criss), Tina (Jenna Ushkowitz), Artie (Kevin McHale), Brittany (Heather Morris) — for realz this time — and possibly Sam (Chord Overstreet). So does that mean Rachel (Lea Michele) and Kurt (Chris Colfer) should make room in their Brooklyn loft for some new roomies? Not necessarily.
