Naya Rivera’s will be featured as a guest judge in an upcoming episode of Netflix’s baking competition show, Sugar Rush.
The late Glee actress, who was laid to rest on Thursday, will feature on season three of the show, for her final filmed appearance, Netflix bosses have confirmed. The season drops on the streaming service at midnight Friday.
Rivera filmed her appearance on Sugar Rush in February – weeks before Hollywood shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic in March – and the episode will be dedicated to the late actress with an onscreen note honouring her before the opening credits.
She will be seen alongside chefs and regular judges Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo, as well as host Hunter March in the new season, which is dubbed Sugar Rush: Extra Sweet.
Rivera was found dead in Lake Piru, Ventura County, California, earlier this month, following a five-day search and rescue operation after she went missing during a boat trip with her four-year-old son Josey.
