Fox says Naya Rivera to remain on 'Glee'

By

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Naya Rivera is still a Gleek.

FOX Network said in a statement to the AP on Saturday that there's no truth to rumors that Rivera had been fired from the show. Rivera plays the character Santana Lopez, a lesbian glee club member, on the popular musical drama.

'Glee' had its fifth-season wrap party Friday night. The season finale is set to air stateside May 20.

Show co-creator Ryan Murphy has said the series' sixth season will be its last.

It's been a difficult year for the series' cast and crew. Actor Cory Monteith, who had been romantically linked to actress Lea Michele, died in July 2013 of a drug overdose.
