Gleeks, rejoice! Dianna Agron is officially set to return to Fox’s musical dramedy “Glee” for its forthcoming 100th episode. Series creator Ryan Murphy confirmed the news today with a tweet that simply read: “Dianna is IN for Glee 100th!”
For the first three seasons of the series, Agron played Quinn Fabray, a mean high school cheerleader who romanced various boys (most notably the late Cory Monteith‘s Finn Hudson) and was frenemies to Lea Michele‘s Rachel Berry. Despite the ridiculous storylines her character had to endure at times, there was no denying that Agron’s charismatic presence on the show left fans wanting more.
Agron’s absence was most felt during this year’s Finn Hudson tribute episode, titled “The Quarterback.” All of the the show’s original cast members returned for the special tribute, with the exception of Agron and Heather Morris (who was pregnant at the time). Although no official reason was given for Quinn’s exclusion, that didn’t stop a controversial media report from surfacing alleging drama between the cast and show creator towards Agron.
Rumours aside, now that Quinn is set to return for at least a single episode, fans are undoubtedly in anticipation to find out what role her character will play. I for one hope that Quinn gets an opportunity to have a moment of closure in regards to her relationship with Finn. It’s only fair that her character also get a chance to pay her respects considering the major history between the pair. Finally, I’d love to see her reunite with Rachel and see the continued development of their unlikely friendship. Any “Faberry” fans out there?
In addition to Agron, fellow former regular cast members Morris, Mark Salling, Amber Riley, Jayma Mays and Harry Shum Jr. have all been confirmed to appear in the episode. To top it off, recurring guest star Kristen Chenoweth will also reprise her role as April Rhodes for the show’s 100th anniversary.
You can catch all the drama and remixed past hits when “Glee” presents its yet to be titled 100th episode on March 18 at 8 p.m. E.T. on Fox.
