Production on Glee's big post-Super Bowl episode was halted Friday after several members of the Fox show's cast came down with tonsillitis.

Entertainment Weekly reports the cast was in the process of shooting a large musical number on location for the Feb. 6 episode when production was canceled due to the viral outbreak.

While the identities of the sick cast members have not been revealed, actress Dianna Agron posted a telling message on her Tumblr blog Friday.

"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," Agron, who plays cheerleader Quinn, wrote.
