Naya Rivera to Recur on Glee Season 6

by at . Comments

Another Glee casting situation has been cleared up.

No, Chris Colfer is NOT leaving the show that made him famous. And neither is Naya Rivera.

There had been talk for weeks that the actress had been feuding with co-star Lea Michele, leading to less of a role for Rivera on the Glee Season 5 finale and no role at all for her on Glee Season 6.

But multiple sources now confirm Rivera will help the musical comedy say goodbye next year, but she'll do it as a recurring guest guest, not a series regular.

According to TV Line, Rivera requested this status change for the sixth season and producers complied.

Fox is yet to announce a premiere date for the final run of Glee episodes, but expect the show to debut in early 2015 and to air a reduced number of installments compared to past seasons.

In the meantime, you can always catch up when you watch Glee online.

Glee Quotes

You know, a great big fat person once stood on this stage and told a group of a dozen or so nerds in hideous disco outfits that glee, by its very definition, is about opening yourself up to joy. Now it's no secret that for a long time I thought that was a load of hooey. As far as I could see the glee club was nothing but a place where a bunch of cowardly losers go to sing their troubles away and delude themselves into thinking that they live in a world that cares one iota about their hopes and dreams, totally divorced from the harsh reality that in the real world there's not much more to hope for than disappointment, heartbreak, and failure. And you know what. I was exactly right. Thats exactly what glee club is. But I was wrong about the cowardly part. What I finally realized, now that I'm well into my late thirties, it takes a lot of bravery to look around you and see the world not as it is but as it should be. A world where the quarterback becomes best friends with the gay kid, and the girl with the big nose ends up on Broadway. Finding the courage to open up your heart and sing about it. That's what glee club is. And for the longest time I thought that was silly, and now I think it's just about the bravest thing that anyone could do.

[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.
