The show was rocked by the deaths of two other co-stars in 2013 and 2018.
Cory Monteith, who played Finn Hudson on the show, overdosed on heroin and alcohol in a Canada hotel room at 31.
Five years later, in January 2018, Mark Salling died by suicide in Los Angeles.
Salling had pleaded guilty to possessing child porn the month before and was due to be sentenced in March of that year.
