Although a show spokesperson declined to comment, I’m told the duo’s likely promotion would kick in next season.

Earlier this month, Morris made no secret of her desire to go full-time on Glee. “I am technically not a series regular, but I’m climbing the ladder,” Morris told us. “Maybe in season 2.”
