Naya Rivera: Still Under Glee Contract, Season 6 Status Unknown

at . Comments

With talk swirling that Naya Rivera has been fired from Glee (possibly due to an on-set clash with Lea Michele) Fox has come out with a statement that addresses this rumor.

And shoots it down completely.

"There is no truth to the rumor Naya has been fired from the show. She remains under contract to Glee," the network said on Saturday.

However, this statement does not confirm whether or not Santana will be a part of the Glee Season 5 finale, as previous reports said a duet with Mercedes had been scrapped.

Rivera has portrayed the sassy Santana Lopez since the first season of this Fox comedy, with her role only increasing over the years.

But creator Ryan Murphy has already said Glee Season 6 will feature a time jump, a move away from New York and a concentration on a few core cast members.

So it's very possible Rivera will not play a key role on the show's final season regardless of these rumors and whether any aspect of them is accurate.

You know is you say what was actually reported, which is that Naya Rivera was fired for getting in a fight with producers and directors, got kicked off the set and her lot ass revoked, instead of dragging Lea's name into it, I think some people will still click on your article and read it. Probably. Maybe.


A great share thank you.

Glee Quotes

[to Finn] You know, I don't really know what's going to happen between us, but I know that you used to be the guy that would make me feel like the most special girl in the whole world, and it doesn't feel that way anymore. Now it just feels sad and confusing. And the worst part is that it doesn't even feel that bad anymore.


I'm engorged with venom, and triumph.
