Colfer, 24, was hacked, a source close to the actor told FOX411. “It’s not true. His twitter was hacked," our source said. "He was mid-air on a plane. He is indeed returning next season.”
Fox released a statement about the hacking incident, "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."
Colfer was cast as Kurt, a gay teen with a love of music and fashion, on the series in 2009. He has won two People's Choice Awards and a Golden Globe for his work on the series.
Most recently, Colfer made headlines for his children's book series, "The Land of Stories" which has landed on the New York Times' Best Sellers List.
