Will Heather Morris Return To Glee?
In Glee's season four finale, Heather Morris's character, Brittany, was accepted into MIT for early admission, raising questions about whether or not Brittany, and by extension Morris, will be gone for good. In addition, Morris's contract is up and she is also pregnant, which could complicate her return. But fear not, Gleeks, as it appears that she could still remain on the show.
For one, Morris, 26, is not the only actress without a contract for next season; all of the actors' contracts are up and will need to be renewed for the fifth season. Additionally, just because her character is going to MIT, doesn't mean she can't still appear on the show. Sources told E! that Brittany's move, while significant, may be treated similarly to Quinn's (Dianna Agron) car accident and Sue's (Jane Lynch) firing, which were two traumatic events that could have signaled the end of their characters' tenures but ultimately did not. Should she remain on the show, Morris will probably take on a smaller role for the time being because of her pregnancy.
During her run on Glee thus far, Morris and the other cast members have been nominated four times for the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble Cast in a Comedy Series, winning once in 2009. Morris has also had film roles in Bedtime Stories, Fired Up!, Glee: The 3D Concert Movie, Ice Age: Continental Drift and Spring Breakers.
