Gloria Estefan Returning for Final Season of ‘Glee’
Latin superstar Gloria Estefan is reprising her role as Naya Rivera’s mother in Glee for the hit TV musical’s final season.
The veteran singer made her Glee debut in 2012, when she and pal Ricky Martin joined forces to bring a little Latin fever to the show, and now Estefan is preparing to return once more as Maribel Lopez for an episode titled, “The Wedding.”
The Rhythm Is Gonna Get You hitmaker teased fans about her upcoming guest appearance by sharing a picture of a Glee studio sign on Instagram on Tuesday, writing, “It seems it never rains in Southern California… Lol (laugh out loud). We’re ‘Glee-full’ to be here!”
She followed the post up with a collage of photos from the set on Wednesday, alongside the caption, “Early call time here on the set of Glee”.
“The Wedding” episode will air next year as part of the sixth and final season of the show.
