Santana is coming back! Well, kind of. After much speculation whether ‘Glee’ star Naya Rivera would return for the final season, following rumors of her being fired, HollywoodLife.com can confirm that Naya is still part of the cast — this time, as a guest star.
We all know that Chris Colfer wasn’t actually fired (and Lea Michele isn’t pregnant, for that matter), and turns out, Naya Rivera is safe on Glee, too! She won’t be back as a series regular, but Naya is set to return as a guest star in the sixth and final season.
Naya Rivera Returning To ‘Glee’ As Guest Star
These Glee kids sure know how to make the news! Just days after Chris Colfer and Lea Michele‘s Twitter accounts were hacked, we have some real news to deliver: Naya Rivera is confirmed to return for Season 6!
While Naya will be back, she won’t be billed full time, as first reported by our sister site TVLine — she’s making her comeback, as a guest star, 20th Century Fox confirmed to HollywoodLife.com.
Naya Rivera Requested Her Own Demotion
What’s really shocking is that Naya was the one who requested her demotion! The producers honored her request so it seems like they’re happy to have her back in whatever capacity.
The number of episodes that Naya will appear in for the final season remains to be seen.
HollywoodLifers, are you excited that Naya is returning to Glee? Do you wish that she’d be back as a full-timer? Let us know!
