Santana (Naya Rivera) and her on-again-off-again girlfriend Brittany (Heather Morris) may be enjoying a relaxing vacation on the isle of Lesbos, but with Santana’s return to New York imminent, we know that the ladies’ fun in the sun can’t last forever — or can it?!
Much to our delight, E! News reports that Heather will be back as Brit in Glee’s Season 5 finale on May 13, which will be set in NYC. Though FOX hasn’t confirmed this amazing news just yet, E! cites several sources knowledgeable of Heather’s upcoming return.
Heather left Glee after Season 4 to focus on raising her son, Elijah, who is now seven months old. But the blonde momma has been back for guest appearances throughout Season 5, most recently in Episode 12: “100” and Episode 13: “New Directions” to bid MckInley’s glee club farewell. As we mentioned above, we last saw Brittany invite Santana on a vacation to Lesbos to celebrate their rekindled romance in Episode 13.
We have no word yet on what Santana and Brittany’s Season 5 finale storyline will be, but E!’s sources say Glee producers would “love” to have Heather back for the show’s sixth (and presumably final) season, so here’s hoping things at least end on a good note for the fan-favorite duo. Still, Heather is currently enjoying spending time with little Elijah, so a full-time return to the show for Season 6 is definitely up in the air.
Glee’s fifth season will end a little earlier than usual this year seeing as there will only be 20 episodes this time around instead of the traditional 22-episode count. The season was reduced by two episodes because of the extended break the cast and crew took last fall to mourn the sudden passing of Cory Monteith (Finn).
Are you psyched that Heather will be featured in Glee’s Season 5 finale? Tell us what you think below!
Glee Season 5 airs Tuesday nights on FOX at 8 p.m. ET.
