Regretfully, this will mark Rivera’s last project, following her death in July of 2020 as a result of a drowning accident after she and her son, Josey, rented a boat at Lake Piru in Southern California.
The boat was found at the north side of the lake with her son sleeping aboard. Five days later, Rivera’s body was found, and authorities ruled out that the actress and singer died whilst saving Josey.
The actress was also recently honoured by her Glee co-stars at the 32nd Annual GLAAD Media Awards, paying tribute to Rivera’s ground-breaking character, Santana. The tribute also comes on the 10th anniversary of Santana’s coming out on Glee.
Meanwhile, The Long Halloween will debut on June 22.
