FOX has released a trailer for its upcoming "Glee" episode that pays tribute to late star Cory Monteith, who played Finn and died in July from a heroin and alcohol overdose.

In the clip, Lea Michele, the actor's real-life girlfriend and the character's love interest, Rachel, is seen sobbing as she is comforted by Matthew Morrison, who plays Glee Club instructor Mr. Schue.

The episode is set to air on Thursday, Oct. 10, and is titled "The Quarterback."

"I've never seen a crew that you can't continue shooting because they've left the room sobbing," Murphy told reporters recently, according to E! Online. It was very hard... 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."

FOX Entertainment President Kevin Reilly had said at a Television Critics Association panel in Los Angeles in August that the will "deal directly with the incidents involved in Cory's passing."

The show will also be somewhat of a reunion episode -- past cast members, including Amber Riley, Harry Shum Jr., Mark Salling (Puck) and Jayma Mays, are set to make an appearance, according to E! Online.
