When Glee starts production on its final season later this summer, Naya Rivera’s name will be on the call sheet.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Santana’s portrayer — who dodged rumors this spring that her days on the show were numbered — is returning for Season 6.

The small-ish catch: Rivera will be billed as a recurring guest star and not as a series regular — a change I’m told she requested (and the producers honored).

Keep in mind, many a Glee vet has seen his or her contract status tweaked over the years and still maintained an active presence on the show (see also: Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, etc.).

Rivera’s rep could not be reached, while a Glee spokesperson declined to comment.

Last month, series cocreator Ryan Murphy told TVLine that Glee will return to its central conceit in Season 6.

“We’re working on the last season now, and it really feels like it’s getting back to its roots, which I love,” he shared. “I’m sort of reinvigorated about it. It’s getting back to what I was initially interested in with the show, which was arts in school. The last season is really about the importance of arts education in our high schools… I think people will like it.”

Fox has yet to announce a premiere date for Glee‘s (likely abbreviated) final season.

It's July 2014 so Glee is barely mentioned.

It's been almost two months since this community made a post about "actor" Darrin Criss, and most of us were probably happily forgetting he exists. With the end of Glee's catastrophic 5th season came Darrin's withdrawal into absolute public irrelevancy, along with other mediocre nobodies like Chad Overstreet and Jack Artist.

“I think [Sue Sylvester’s] back as principal [in the final season of Glee], as far as I know. I think we’re going to have some surprises about who’s going to be the choir director of The Warblers and who will be the choir director of Vocal Adrenaline. I think it’ll be a big surprise.” -Jane Lynch

The age of Aquarius is dawning this summer at the Hollywood Bowl’s 2014 Summer Series with an all-star cast! The previously announced production of Hair will be led by Frozen star Kristen Bell as Sheila and Hunter Parrish as Claude, with Glee’s Amber Riley and Jenna Ushkowitz as Dionne and Jeanie, respectively. Joining them will be Beverly D’Angelo as Mom. Further casting will be announced at a later date. The Adam Shankman-helmed production will run August 1 through August 3.

Prior to singing about snowmen in Frozen, Bell appeared on Broadway in The Crucible and The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, as well as off-Broadway’s Reefer Madness. Her additional screen credits include Veronica Mars and Forgetting Sarah Marshall. Parrish, who starred in the TV series Weeds, made his Broadway debut as Melchior in Spring Awakening, and went on to star in the revival of Godspell. In addition to Glee, Riley (who recently won Season 17 of Dancing with the Stars) and Ushkowitz have appeared on the New York stage in Cotton Club Parade and Spring Awakening, respectively.

Hair follows a group of free-spirited youths who passionately preach a lifestyle of peace, love, freedom and happiness in a society that they see suffering from intolerance and brutality during the Vietnam War. The musical features such memorable numbers as “Let the Sun Shine In,” Aquarius” and “Good Morning Starshine.”

I wanna go so badly. Too bad I live on the East Coast.

In other Jenna news, she and Michael Trevino are no longer an item. Nobody knows yet when this happened, but they went to Coachella separately and were not seen with each other. She does have a cute squishy dog now.
E4 has green-lit Virtually Famous, a panel show hosted by Glee alum Kevin McHale which will feature viral internet content.

The series, which has received an 8 episode order, was piloted earlier this year and will see Chris Stark and Seann Walsh serve as team captains as their respective teams battle “for points over the online moments that have got millions laughing.

Virtually Famous is a co-production between Talkback and Hungry Bear Media. The eight part series, which will air later this year, was commissioned by Commissioning Editor Jilly Pearce and Channel 4’s Head of Formats Dom Bird.

Entertainment formats looking at viral content have been on the increase in recent years. US network Syfy aired Viral Video Showdown in late 2012, which challenged contestants to create viral videos; while more recently ITV2 commissioned Viral Tap, fronted by Caroline Flack.
