Brittany S. Pierce fans, rejoice!
Heather Morris, who left Glee at the end of last season to give birth and be a mom, has signed on for the show's 100th episode.
Murphy says he has invited all of the original cast members to return for the landmark episode, and revealed Tuesday that Harry Shum Jr., Amber Riley (DWTS winner!) and Mark Salling would also return.
Fans have been asking who will be singing in the episode, because Fox put out a press release hinting that only the "current" New Directions would be singing. However, a highly placed source tells us:
"Most of the songs will be sung by the Originals, with special guest stars as well. The Old New Directions."
Fox previously announced Gleeks Choice, an online initiative that calls for fans to vote for the songs to be "remixed" for the show's 100th episode, airing March 18. Fans can vote for up to 10 songs at a time and can submit votes as many times as they like.
The choice of songs includes memorable Glee moments like Rachel and Kurt's "Defying Gravity," Santana's "Valerie," and Artie's "Safety Dance." Also included is the pilot's iconic rendition of Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," which remains somewhat of a show anthem. Previews of each song are included with each choice.
Are you exited for Heather to return?
