In another blow to the popular "Glee" television show, star Jayma Mays has announced that she will leave at the end of this season. The show’s future is already uncertain after the death of star Cory Monteith earlier this month.

Mays plays Emma Pillsbury, the perky, germophobic high school counselor.

Hollywood Life reported on the "Glee" cast "shakeup" that’s occurring, including the departures of Mark Salling, Heather Morris, Amber Riley, and Harry Shum Jr. The online publication speculated about whether this means Matthew Morrison, Mays’ on-screen hubby on "Glee," will also leave the show.

Hollywood Life said Mays will star in a CBS sitcom, "The Millers," and quoted the actress as saying she would enjoy returning to "Glee" as a guest.

It’s unclear just how much change "Glee" fans will accept. Montieth’s death still hasn’t sunk in online, where Monteith’s actors, friends and fans continue to mourn. Fellow "Glee" fellow actor Kevin McHale was quoted in Us Magazine as saying about his friend, “So thankful that I and so many of got to experience Cory's overwhelming kindness, humor and talent. There will not be a day that goes by that I won't miss him. Thank you all for your incredible support and patience.”

Monteith died July 13 of a drug overdose and was known to struggle with addiction problems.

Although "Glee" is returning in September for its fifth season, many have wondered whether the show will continue without Monteith and now with other actors jumping ship.

The show’s future was uncertain even before Monteith died. With major actors and actresses leaving, rumors had circulated since early in the year that the show couldn’t survive after the upcoming season.
