"There is no truth to the rumor Naya has been fired from the show," FOX said in a statement to the Associated Press over the weekend. However, Naya has to apologize to secure her Glee Season 6 gig, HollywoodLife reported.
Lea Michele, who has been rumoured to be the reason why Naya was written out of the Glee Season 5 finale, does not want to comment on the issue, according to CBS News. On Twitter, Lea has a lot of things going on (the Met gala is one of the latest), but she has no recent tweets remotely related to Naya Rivera.
The Glee Season 5 finale airs on FOX on May 13. Naya Rivera's Santana Lopez was in the episode, says various reports. Entertainment Weekly picked up the FOX statement, stressing "any reports or rumors circulating that Naya Rivera was let go or fired from Glee are absolutely untrue. End of story."
Glee Season 5, Episode 19 is this week's new episode and the season's penultimate show. Chris Colfer, who wrote the episode, incorporates Peter Pan into the episode. Madonna's "Lucky Star" and "I Melt With You" by Modern English are two of the songs featured in Glee 5x19.
"They were very supportive, and I think they all really enjoyed the story," Colfer told TV Guide, describing his co-stars reaction to his script.
In 'Old Dog,' Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) gives Santana (Naya Rivera) a job in relation to her latest New York project. Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) stars in a Peter Pan production. These arcs are expected to connect to the Glee Season 5 finale.
On Twitter, Naya Rivera has a message to her fans: "Don't ever let the he say she say get you down (sic)" The actress recently posted this photo on Instagram. When Glee Season 5, Episode 20 airs without Santana, her fans are expected to react in various ways.
