Glee Season 5: Beloved Character Getting a “Serious” New Girlfriend!
That slow, mournful wail you hear? Yeah, that would be the sound of our entire world crashing down. TV Line has some pretty life-changing relationship spoilers for fans of Glee’s greatest girl couple.
Season 5 will not be a fun one for Brittana fans. While spoiler king Michael Ausiello does give the encouraging news that Brittany (Heather Morris) likely will be back at some point in the season, he says that any return likely won’t happen until the beginning of 2014.
Actress Heather Morris is reportedly due to give birth to her first child this fall, so Brit’s return will likely be postponed until a few months after that.
Now for the really bad news, Ausiello says that Brit’s ex-girlfriend, Santana (Naya Rivera), does not appear to be waiting around for her. He writes, “Word on the street is she’s getting a serious NYC girlfriend in Season 5.” Cue our gut-wrenching sobs and generally inconsolability.
The only silver lining is that filming for the first half of Season 5 is still a few months away. Plans for Season 5 might not be set in stone, and Ausiello’s “word on the street” phrasing gives us hope that plans might change.
That said, actress Naya Rivera has been vocal about her desire for Santana to meet a hot new love interest in NYC, so it’s very possible that the show might finally be granting her wish. We love Brittana together, but we’re willing to find solace in the idea that, while Santana might move on for now, she still could end up with Brittany in the end.
After all, did you see how long Rachel and Brody lasted? NYC hasn’t proven to be that great at bringing our Glee pals true love so far. Here’s to hoping this one doesn’t turn out to be a high-end escort!
