Update: Murphy also confirmed that standout guest star Kristin Chenoweth will return as April Rhodes for the 100th episode of “Glee.”
Whether the millions of former “Glee” fans will return for the series’ 100th episode remains to be seen, but several former cast members will definitely be doing so.
In a Tweet Tuesday, series creator Ryan Murphy announced that “Glee” had invited all of its original cast members to return for the milestone episode. In subsequent Tweets, Murphy revealed that four of those cast members accepted.
According to Murphy, former regulars Harry Shum, Jr., Amber Riley, Mark Salling and Heather Morris will all reprise their roles on March 18, 2014.
Most notably missing from Murphy’s initial wave of confirmation Tweets is the status of Dianna Agron, who played Quinn Fabray on the one-time pop culture phenomenon. Agron’s conspicuous absence from the Cory Monteith tribute episode sparked a whirlwind of rumors and accusations.
