Among many comments to Deadline, Murphy said the following…
“We were left with the decision, what do you do? Do you cancel, shut down the show? Come back in December and January? We considered every option, and decided to do what the cast and crew felt best, the people who had something unique with Cory, who loved him. They wanted to be back on the set, where there is a sense of security, and where they can grieve together and talk about him. When that happens, we will have grief counselors for the first two weeks to help everyone through it. We had already written the two part Beatles tribute and we’ll shoot those and Cory’s tribute for that third episodes and then we will take a long hiatus and figure out what to do. Will we have a truncated season? I just don’t know yet. Lea blessed every decision. I told her even I don’t know what to do. I don’t know how to write about the death of someone I love. She wanted people to be together. She and Cory were the young leads of that show, the A story. Lea has been a leader all through this difficult process.”
Ryan Murphy recently said he sees the show lasting for four more years.
Four more years, four more years!

Denise Martin really asked the tough questions. Like “you said there wouldn’t be guest stars and tribute episodes in season 3,” and “do you think you’re only good at beginnings?” Murphy reveals that he understands the hot and cold fan reactions and that there likely won’t ever be another Glee tour with the original cast members.
Murphy says pretty much everyone. He’s left the door open for all who want to remain to remain, but says that doesn’t mean they’ll all be doing 22 episodes.
Regardless, the show is going to look very different next year.
"[Season 2] is set on the East Coast at an institution for the criminally insane that is run by Jessica," Murphy said Wednesday during a panel promoting the series at the TV Academy in North Hollywood.
Murphy also said that, “the second season is set in a completely different time period.”
