It’s the holiday season, which can only mean one thing: Sickness! Several “Glee” cast members have come down with tonsillitis, forcing the show to shut down production today, a rep for the show confirms.

The cast was scheduled to shoot a big musical number on location this Friday evening for February’s post-Super Bowl episode, first reported. They’ll have to get healthy fast because production is expected to resume on Monday. The musical number, however, will be rescheduled for January.


20th Century Fox Television, the studio behind the show, isn’t commenting on which cast members are sick, but earlier today “Glee” star Dianna Agron posted the following message on her Tumblr along with a picture of the cutest sick teddy bear ever: “Note to self…should have gotten a flu shot. In bed, hoping that medicine, soup, my computer and a marathon of movies will be the cure.”

Get healthy and enjoy your day of respite, Gleeks!
