Pardon us while we go all Chicken LIttle, but sources confirm it’s true Jayma Mays has signed on to another show on another network: CBS’ The Millers, playing the sister of Will Arnett (Mays is replacing Mary Elizabeth Ellis, who played the Debbie character in the pilot. Margo Martindale and Beau Bridges play their parents.)
This news comes on the heels of confirmation that four series regulars also won’t be returning: Heather Morris Mark Salling, Amber Riley and Harry Shum, Jr.
So naturally, all the “Wemma” shippers, and Jayma Mays fans of the world are rocking themselves in the fetal position, asking: Does this mean we won’t see any more of Mays’ character Emma on Glee? Even though she just finally married Will (Matthew Morrison) in the season finale?
“She’s not off the show,” a Glee source tells us. “She’s been cleared to appear in a few episodes [of Glee]. There’s no schedule or plan yet though.”
Let the record show: We had higher hopes for the long-awaited union of WIll and Emma, even if it did go down in the weirdest of circumstances, in the weirdest of places (the choir room), in the season finale. Are we the only ones who remember the magic of Wemma in the first two seasons?
33-year-old Mays, who previously starred on NBC’s Heroes and ABC’s Ugly Betty, has been a part of Glee since season one, along with the departing Morris, Salling, Riley and ShumFollow @Infocelebrity on Twitter!
