Chris ColferFox’s Glee will NOT be without one of its original stars when it returns for its sixth and final season. Star Chris Colfer, who has been a regular since the series debuted, announced Thursday via Twitter that he will not be coming back to the musical dramedy where he has played fan favorite Kurt Hummel for the past five seasons.

The news was picked up quickly by Entertainment Weekly and other news sites, but had to be corrected a short time later when Colfer’s manager announced that the star’s verified Twitter account had been hacked and that the actor will indeed be back for the final season of the Fox musical as he has a signed contract for season six. The actor’s publicist told THR that Colfer is on a mid-Atlantic flight without WiFi access and not immediately available to update his Twitter account.

Studio 20th Century Fox Television also issued a statement confirming that Colfer will indeed be back for the final season. “We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.”
