Jayma Mays Confirms Glee Departure, Will Exit After Season 5

by at . Comments

She can't say how and she can't say when, but Jayma Mays has now confirmed:

"This is going to be my last season" on Glee, she told Access Hollywood at the premiere for Smurfs 2 over the weekend.

Talk over the actress' status has been prevalent since she signed on to star as Will Arnett's sister on The Millers, a new CBS sitcom that kicks off in September.

And while Mays said she would "love" to pop up as a guest star on the already-announced sixth season - Emma is now married to Will, after all - she will soon join a number of long-time regulars who are no longer main cast members.

Mark Salling, Heather Morris, Amber Riley and Harry Shum Jr. have all been demoted and it's unclear how often they will appear on Glee Season 5.

The series, of course, has been dealing with the real-life death of Cory Monteith over the past few weeks. Creator Ryan Murphy recently said Finn's passing will be written into the script and addressed via a tribute episode on Episode 3 of the new season.

Glee Quotes

Rachel: This is what I wanted!
Sam: No, what you wanted was a second chance to get it right and Carmen just gave it to you. If you throw all that away you're going to be making the same mistake all over again

Finn: I seem to recall a rumor about a certain cheerleading coach at this school who once took horse estrogen and posed for Penthouse back in the day. So maybe I can just track that down and make a few copies and sell those to raise money for Regionals.
Sue: That's nothing but a rumor. But if that rumor were true, my Penthouse centerfold so groundbreaking that it completely redefined the term 'hirsute,' and gave birth unto these United States a pose so limber they named it the Regal American Not-So-Bald Spread Eagle, I promise you, my friend, you would never find it.
