Dianna Agron to Return for GLEE's 100th Episode
Earlier this week, BWW reported that Ryan Murphy has invited the entire original cast of FOX's Glee to return for the 100th episode of the series, airing Tuesday, March 18, 2014.
"ALL The Glee Originals received invites today to be in our 100th episode! More to follow," Murphy tweeted. Later in the day it was confirmed that Harry Shum Jr., who portrayed Mike, recent Dancing With the Stars winner Amber Riley, who portrayed Mercedes, Mark Salling, who portrayed Puck and Heather Morris, who portrayed Brittany have all signed on to make an appearance.
Yesterday Murphy revealed the exciting news that Kristin Chenoweth will reprise her hilarious role as April Rhodes, a figure from Will's (Matthew Morrison) high school days of Glee club. "Kristin Chenoweth is IN for Glee's 100th!, tweeted Murphy, "Love her!"
Agron was last seen on the show at the end of season four. While Shum, Riley and Salling all made an appearance on October's tribute episode to late actor Cory Monteith titled, "The Quarterback," Agron, whose character Quinn had a romantic relationship with Monteith's Finn, was noticeably absent from the emotional episode.
In an interview with The Irish Independent last month, she explained her absense on the episode, dismissing any rumors that she wasn't invited to appear. "Bad news spreads faster than anything good. And I think it's just such a shame, especially involving someone that we love so much, that the good old Internet has taken everything that they want to say about it and spread it like wildfire."
