Lea Michele's 'Rachel' to Stay Single on GLEE This Season

An inside source at Glee has revealed to Hollywood Life that Lea Michele's character 'Rachel Berry' will not be getting a new love interest this season on FOX.

"It is true that Lea doesn't want to move fast into another relationship so quickly from the loss of Finn," the source told the site. "The show is going to take things naturally and make things as real as possible and have her deal with the loss and issues that come from it."

The source added: "Rachel, for the remainder of the show, is going to be a version of Lea that she wants to show to her fans. Cory and Finn will not be forgotten and that will be shown throughout the rest of the series."

GLEE's upcoming Cory Monteith tribute episode, titled "The Quarterback," will feature the return of former Glee regulars Mark Salling, Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., Jayma Mays, Mike O'Malley, Dot-Marie Jones, and Romy Rosemont. Dianna Agron and Heather Morris are not expected to appear.

Set entirely in Lima, Ohio, home of fictional McKinley High, where Hudson enjoyed four years as star quarterback, the episode titled 'The Quarterback' will begin with the tragic news of the athlete's death before going on "to focus on all the characters remembering and mourning him, and celebrating his life."

Michele will not be seen until the final scene. While her appearance is brief, her performance is reportedly "incredibly powerful." A musical number performed by Michele's character will also be featured.

In the meantime, Glee is set to return to FOX for its fifth season with two Beatles-themed episodes: "Love, Love, Love" on September 26, and "Tina in the Sky with Diamonds", airing October 3.
