It looks like Amber Riley is leaving Glee, with her tweets about her last day of shooting looking like a final goodbye.

Will her character, Mercedes, graduate and never return again?

Lea Michele, Cory Monteith and Chris Colfer are the only confirmed McKinley High seniors returning for Glee's fourth season, so the fate of the remaining cast members is unknown right now.

Jane Lynch recently seemed to confirm rumors that Dianna Agron is leaving Glee, and Dianna tweeted last night: "I don't know all that is to come, but I know what a day like this means. Four years of love, light & support. To the cast, crew & creators."

Amber Riley tweeted: "That's a wrap on Amber Riley! Just closed a chapter in my life, the only thing I've known day in and day out for three years. I'm going to miss the whole Glee family, seeing them everyday!"

That sounds like a pretty definite confirmation that she's leaving, right?

She added, "I have so many brothers and sisters now :) But I am looking forward to a much needed and deserved summer vacation! SCHOOL'S OUT Glee Kids! Let's play!"

Amber then threw a curve, teasing that maybe there's more for her character Mercedes on Glee: "Stay tuned to see what's next for Mercedes ;)"

Does that mean stay tuned to see what happens for the rest of the season... or maybe there's a chance that she'll turn up next season?
