Will Amber Riley Be Returning To Glee Next Season?

Will Amber Riley Be Returning To Glee Next Season?

Two weeks ago Amber Riley who plays Mercedes Jones on Glee caused an uproar when she tweeted:

Just closed a chapter in my life, the only thing I’ve known day in and day out for three years. I’m going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday! I have so many brothers and sisters now 🙂 But I am looking forward to a much needed and deserved summer vacation!” she wrote. “SCHOOL’S OUT Glee Kids! Let’s play!

She later retracted her statement but from the looks of things, she may not be returning to Glee next season after all.

Fox’s Glee wrapped its third and emotional season as many of the original New Directions graduated from high school only to venture out on their own and follow their dreams.

Although Kurt wasn’t accepted to NYADA, Rachel was so she will be heading to New York. Finn (Rachel’s beau) had plans of heading to New York with her but when his audition for the New York-based Actors Studio didn’t go as planned he decides to enlist in the Army.

Resident bad girl Santana has dreams of superstardom. With her mother’s blessing Santana is headed to New York along with Rachel so where does that leave Mercedes?

Thanks to that video that Sam recorded and put on Youtube, Mercedes gets a recording contract as a backup singer and is headed to L.A. It would be great if Puck joined her so she would not be alone.

As of right now it’s been rumored that season four would be divided between New York and Ohio since that’s where the majority of the seniors would be.

If that’s true then Amber Riley’s (Mercedes) tweet was true and last night may have been her last time performing on Glee.
