WE ALL MISSED HER—now, with our favourite musical-comedy series nearing its penultimate season, would we be able to see more of Glee’s resident diva?
Glee creators Ryan Murphy, Ian Brennan, and Brad Falchuk provide an answer we would all love. According to Fox News, the creators of the show have gleefully invited the original members of the “New Directions” to make a comeback this season. This means that the likelihood of Amber Riley returning to the show and belting out her vocal prowess is positive. As a glee writer and avid fan of Mercedes i cannot wait to see her back, giving me something i enjoy to write about.
Despite the Busy Schedule
We were all saddened when Riley had been reduced to a guest character after the show’s third season. This was due to her demanding schedule. After Riley won the seventeenth season of “Dancing with the Stars” in 2013, the number of projects along her pipeline has been considerably growing.
After season three, we were just occasionally seeing her coming back to McKinley as a mentor and a vocal coach to young students. For the penultimate season, we are all anticipating to see something more from her. It would definitely be the time when we would see the same-old Mercedes belting out covers of the biggest hits from Beyonce, Kelly Rowland, Mariah Carey, and Barbara Streisand.
Towards a Rekindled Romance
Riley’s character is one of those who have a very interesting love life. At the beginning of the show, we have seen how she developed a crush on Kurt (Chris Colfer). We also witnessed how it crushed her after the latter reiterated that he was gay and not interested with the former.
It even got more exciting when we watched how Mercedes developed relationships with the show’s hotties, Puck (Mark Sailing) and Sam (Chord Overstreet). Her relationship with Sam turned out to be the one that is more enduring.
It started at McKinley but sadly ended when Mercedes left for a recording contract in Los Angeles. When the two came across each other in New York City during the show’s fifth season, the fire between them was reignited. As such, we are all expecting to witness more of this rekindled romance. Would this relationship keep running for the long haul? Would we see an engagement (or even a wedding) for the sixth season?
Blasting to the Future
Mercedes was not called as the show’s diva for nothing. She was one of the front runners of New Directions. She was the first one to be admitted to the glee club. She received a break for an indie recording contract while she was just a student of McKinley. She was Rachel Berry’s arch-nemesis.
With Ryan Murphy teasing that there would be a huge time jump for Glee Season 6, would we see a more successful Mercedes? Now that she is in New York City and living a “just-about-to-make-it” life, would we see a star that has risen not only in America but also in other parts of the world.
