Naya Rivera returning for 'Glee' final Season 6, but not as a regular: Report

naya-rivera-glee-season-6-final-season.jpgDespite rumors of cat fights and walk-offs, Naya Rivera will be returning to "Glee" for the show's likely shortened final season, but there's a catch -- it won't be as a series regular.

According to TVLine, Rivera herself requested the change, which the producers granted. When she returns for Season 6, it will be as a recurring guest star rather than a regular cast member as in past seasons.

Rivera was written out of the "Glee" Season 5 finale after rumors surfaced that she and Lea Michele were fighting on set, and reports at the time suggested that Rivera would not return for the show's last season.
