Naya posted this image of her and Demi from the set of Glee on her Instagram yesterday.
The moment that we first heard that Demi Lovato and Naya Rivera were going to be doing a duet on “Glee” season 5, there was one thought that inevitably crawled into our brain: These two characters of Santana and Dani were definitely going to be romancing each other on the new season.
Well, luckily the news is now official that Demi will be playing a new love interest. Rivera confirmed the following last night to MTV (see the video below) while celebrating the 2013 Video Music Awards in Brooklyn, and said that she is more than excited to see what happens with her on board. This is a casting that many Lovatics are clearly already celebrating, as it marks an opportunity for their idol to do her first major acting gig since “Sonny with a Chance” back on the Disney Channel. Given that she is only set to be in six episodes, though, it is probably going to be pretty easy to figure out whether or not this relationship lasts in the long-term.
Very excited for this news!
For those of you hankering for some more great scoop from the world of “Glee,” how’s this for making any and all fans of Naya Rivera smile for a minute or two: Not only is Santana going to have a big arc starting pretty early this season, but she will also be performing “Here Comes the Sun” alongside Demi Lovato’s Dani during one part of the two-part Beatles tribute episode that airs beginning with the September 26 premiere.
E! News was the first to confirm this story, and we are sure that it will immediately spark all sorts of conversation about whether or not we’re about to see a romance between the two actors. Santana is now single, and with Heather Morris gone until likely sometime in the spring, odds are that she is not going to hold on to thoughts about Brittany forever. She doesn’t know, after all, when she will see the new MIT student again, and so it is thus hard to hold onto someone like this.
It will probably be a few weeks into filming before it is ever confirmed as to what the relationship is between Demi and the other “Glee” characters in New York City, and all we can confirm for the time being is that she will have many scenes and also performances with Adam Lambert, who is going to be guest-starring for a significant arc of his own. These two big castings are proof that the show is working on a transition into more and more scenes in New York City, and that this is where the show wants to ultimately go starting in the second half of this season.
Here’s a little snippet of what to expect when Glee returns from MattCarter. More information will be posted as soon as we see it.
Fans of Santana, be ready to rejoice: Naya Rivera has now officially joined the rest of the “Glee” cast in returning to work on the show’s fifth season, and she is preparing for some of the big things that are going to be in store for her character.
In a new post on her Twitter account yesterday, Rivera confirmed that it was the first day of shooting for her role, and she had just completed a fitting for the season a day before. Santana is likely still going to be in New York with Rachel and Kurt when the season picks back up, and all three of these characters have some challenges ahead for them. For one, they have to balance living in an expensive city while following their dreams, and when it comes to Santana, she really has to figure out just what she wants that dream to be. She’s still finding herself, while Kurt and Rachel are a little more set on their path.
As for the idea of a new love interest, we wouldn’t rule it out. Brittany’s not going to be around much, and while we still like to think that the pair will be together at the end of the day, Santana’s not the sort of character who will just wait around for someone else. She is proactive, and there could be plenty of great matches in what is the largest city in America.
