Ryan Murphy Confirms: Lea Michele, Naya Rivera to Return to GLEE

Despite recent reports that there has been tension on the set of Glee between long-time co-stars Lea Michele and Naya Rivera, Ryan Murphy told Extra on Tuesday that both actors are happy to be returning to the FOX musical dramedy for its sixth and final season.

"I always marvel at the things that become Headline News that most of the time are completely fabricated," the Glee creator told the site.

He added, "I don't think there is a story between Naya and Lea," he said. "Naya's coming back next year, Lea's coming back next year - anybody ever in that cast has an open invitation to come back and finish the character they so beautifully started."

Glee will retun for its final season in 2015.

About GLEE

Glee is a musical comedy about a group of ambitious and talented kids who escape the harsh realities of high school by joining a Glee club, where they find strength, acceptance and, ultimately, their voice. Last year's graduates and aspiring singers, RACHEL BERRY (Lea Michelle) and KURT HUMMEL (Chris Colfer), packed their bags for New York and enrolled at a prestigious performing arts school, NYADA, where they made new friends and learned the cruel realities of college. These naïve freshmen moved into a Brooklyn loft, signed up for internships, auditioned for Broadway shows and gained a roommate when SANTANA LOPEZ (Naya Rivera) moved to the Big Apple.

Since its debut, Glee has become a bona fide cultural phenomenon, received prestigious honors, including a Golden Globe Award and a Peabody Award, and singlehandedly made Glee clubs cool again. The series boasts critical acclaim, a die-hard fan base, two Grammy Award nominations, two platinum and five gold albums, more than 43 million songs and more than 13 million albums sold worldwide, two sold-out concert tours, a 3-D movie and four Emmy Awards and three Golden Globes, including the award for Best Television Series - Comedy or Musical.
