The late actress Naya Rivera, who drowned earlier this month while swimming in a California lake with her son, will appear on tonight’s episode of the Netflix baking competition Sugar Rush. She had taped the episode in February, before the pandemic forced all TV production to shut down. It was her last project.
The premiere date for the new season, dubbed Sugar Rush: Extra Sweet, was set before Rivera’s death earlier this month. Netflix consulted with Rivera’s manager before deciding to proceed with the episode’s release.
