Fox says Naya Rivera to remain on ‘Glee’
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Naya Rivera is still a Gleek.
FOX Network said in a statement to The Associated Press on Saturday that there’s no truth to rumors that Rivera had been fired from the show. Rivera plays the character Santana Lopez, a lesbian glee club member, on the popular musical drama.
‘Glee’ had its fifth-season wrap party Friday. The season finale is set to air in the U.S. on May 20.
Show co-creator Ryan Murphy has said the series’ sixth season will be its last.
It’s been a difficult year for the series’ cast and crew. Actor Cory Monteith, who had been romantically linked to actress Lea Michele, died in July 2013 of a drug overdose.
