Plus, Santana has a serious new relationship on the horizon, HollywoodLife.com sister site TVLine is reporting.
You may have shed a tear or two (like I did) when Brittany (Heather Morris) said her goodbyes to New Directions and McKinley High on the May 9 season finale of Glee, but fret not — the actress, who is reportedly expecting her first baby this fall — is likely to return for season five!
Brittany Returning To ‘Glee’ For Season 5
“All indications are that Morris will be back in some capacity, but probably not until the first part of 2014 at the earliest (Morris’ baby is due in the fall),” Michael Ausiello notes in his most recent edition of “Ask Ausiello” on HollywoodLife.com’s sister site TVLine. However, don’t expect a Brittana reunion — “Word on the street is [Santana’s] getting a serious NYC girlfriend in Season 5.”
On the season finale, Brittany accepted an early admission to MIT and left all of her friends, boyfriend Sam (Chord Overstreet) and true love Santana (Naya Rivera) behind. However, we all know the truth — Heather Morris is allegedly expecting a baby! (She needs a maternity leave, ya’ll!)
‘Glee': Season 5 Will Have A Winter Break
There’s a chance Brittany’s absence from the first half of season five may go unnoticed. Kevin Reilly, Fox Entertainment chairman, said that Glee will get a midseason break before returning in late spring with a “creative twist” in store! Brittany will likely only miss a number of episodes before the series goes on a winter/spring-ish hiatus, giving Heather more time to stay at home with her baby and re-energize!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Brittany return? Should Santana date someone new? Tell us how you feel!
