Never count Santana Lopez out.
Though the “Glee” character is currently battling it out with Rachel Berry (Lea Michele) for a Broadway role, Naya Rivera is denying rumors that she’s exiting the show.
The actress tells TVLine that she was headed out of town but she’ll be back on “Glee” later this week, and she offered her best guess for the rumors of her departure.
“I guess Lea was doing interviews and had omitted me from the New York cast list, but I’m sure that was just a Freudian slip on her part, or maybe it wasn’t,” she told TVLine. “People just take things, little things and blow them up. But like I said, I’m reporting for duty at noon.”
Final announcements regarding the returning cast for the final season will be made this summer.
“Glee” will air the second part of its 100th episode celebration next Tuesday, remixing some of New Directions’ most iconic songs.
