Don’t stop believing, folks.
Chris Colfer is staying with “Glee,” contrary to a tweet posted to his account which his rep claims was hacked this afternoon.
The tweet in question (below) states that Colfer, who plays Kurt Hummel on the Golden Globe award-winning show, had been “let go from the cast.”
Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE. Explanations will come shortly...— Chris Colfer (@chriscolfer) July 3, 2014
“It’s not true,” Colfer’s rep said in a statement made directly to TVGuide.com. “His Twitter account has been hacked. He will indeed be back for the final season.”
A separate statement was issued by 20th Century Fox, claiming it had “been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked.
“Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth,” the statement continued. “We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.”
Gleeks may have to wait longer than expected for its sixth and final season. According to “Glee” actress Jane Lynch, the show could potentially come back midseason per an Entertainment Weekly report.Emily Wright can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
