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.
