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

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.
