NHK will begin airing season 3 of the American TV musical series "Glee" at 12:40 a.m. Wednesday. The first episode will be preceded by special condolence footage for actor Cory Monteith, 31, who died of an apparent overdose of heroin and alcohol in Vancouver earlier this month.
In the series, Monteith plays Finn Hudson, a star high school football player who joined a motley crew of students in the glee club.
According to NHK, a ticker will say "We extend our heartfelt condolences at the death of Corey Monteith," while the special footage of Monteith runs in the background.
Season 3 has 22 episodes. It airs on NHK's general channel 1.© Japan Today
