Naya Rivera is making the return to ‘Glee’ for the show’s final season, but maybe not in the way that Gleeks were expecting.

Despite back-and-forth rumors earlier this year of Naya feuding with her TV costar Lea Michele, and the follow-up rumor of Naya being fired because of it, E! News has now confirmed that her character Santana will have some part in the last season of Fox’s dramedy.

The actress won’t be returning as a full-time regular for the sixth season, however. Instead, she’ll be billed as a recurring guest star for an undisclosed number of episodes. That could be as few as one episode, or as many as the whole season will include.

As for the cause of the change, a source told E! that “Naya wants to have more time to explore her music and other endeavors.” And despite those earlier rumors, sources have also confirmed that Naya’s billing change isn’t in any way connected to her alleged spat with Lea.

Gleeks, we’ll find out just how often Santana will make an appearance when the final season of ‘Glee’ premieres midseason in 2015.
