Colfer’s manager told The Hollywood Reporter that the actor’s Twitter account was hacked and he will be starring in the final season of Glee.
A rep for the show also told TheWrap, "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.”
For the past five years, Colfer has been a series regular and fan-favorite, starring as the iconic Kurt Hummel on the primetime musical comedy. His role has earned him two Emmy nominations and a Golden Globe.
Colfer recently talked to E! Online about the final season of Glee.
“I think it will be a good time to conclude the series. It’s a very, very difficult show to do, as everyone knows, and I think when people say we’re the hardest working cast and crew in television, I don’t think it’s an overstatement. I think it’s very much the reality,” Colfer said.
No more tweets have been posted on Colfer’s Twitter account since he has allegedly been hacked.
