Naya Rivera fans have reason to get excited! The actress has announced that she will be returning for Season 5 of Glee!
Yesterday on Twitter, after sharing her excitement for Glee’s double season renewal, Naya answered a fan’s comment, which confirmed her return to the show.
@captaindizzy Of course! Santana isn’t going anywhere. ;-)

Last Friday it was announced that Glee was being ordered for an additional two more seasons. Apart from Naya, no other casting confirmations have been made and fans are extremely curious to know who will and won’t be returning over the next two years. Interestingly, of all the original characters left, it could be said that Santana has the most stories left to explore.
Apart from the relationships with her former glee partners, we’ve actually yet to see what Santana’s life in New York City really looks like, which means anything is possible next year. Would she consider going to NYADA, or maybe another school would be a better fit? ARE there even other schools in the Glee ‘verse?! Maybe she’d work on Wall-Street. It’s not hard to imagine her scheming and trading among the nastiest of stockbrokers. They obviously wouldn’t stand a chance to a rage-induced ‘Snix.’
And who isn’t curious about her relationship status with Brittany? We’re not sure how Heather Morris’s pregnancy will affect her time on set, but if a reunion between the two characters did happen, seeing this relationship unfold would be at the top of the priority list.
Not to mention, if Santana is sticking around with Rachel and Kurt in The Big Apple, then we better be seeing that Coyote Ugly performance we were subtly promised earlier this year. Just the idea of Santana doing her thing up on the bar of a seedy New York establishment is enough to make our heart beat a little faster. Material like that is too good to waste and the writers would be crazy to pass on visuals as hot as those.
