Chord Overstreet Not Returning for 'Glee' Season 3

Chord Overstreet will not be returning for the third season of Glee, as his series regular option has not been picked up, can confirm.

The 22-year-old actor, who plays the role of Sam Evans on the hit FOX series, could return to the show as an occasional guest star next season, according to Deadline.

Chord just tweeted saying “well its been a good yr too bad its over, time for summer and starting fresh.”

Darren Criss and Harry Shum, Jr., who were both recurring guest stars last season, have been bumped up to series regulars for the third season. Dianna Agron will also be returning for the new season!

    Are you freaking kidding me, Ryan Murphy? Chord is a way better actor than Darren and Harry has barely said a complete sentence in his two seasons on the show. Whatever. I guess is doesn’t matter anyway since they’re all graduating. I just hope Ryan Murphy is prepared for the downward spiral in the ratings that is no doubt going to happen from these dumb ass decisions he keeps making.

    I’m sorry to see Chord going, he was very sweet and has a great voice but Ryan did say that he wanted to delve deeper in Mike Chang’s life more this season because they are graduating this year. I’ll be interesting to see Blaine in the show more than he was, him coming to McKinley, perhaps?! That would be amazing! Them holding hands in the halls, aww!

    Let’s hear your album, Chord!

    What the hell!! I love chord. out of all of the characters to kick off the show why chord? just lost some major respect for this show. It wont be the same without him.

    Whaaaaaat? Ryan Murphy just said he didn’t consider Chord a “senior” as if he’d not only be there now but even when the rest of the cast has “graduated” in future seasons. I hope the writing is much improved this season to make up for it.

    He’s not going to be a season regular but still on, he’ll probably either move to another county and they see one another around or they have a break off adding to both of their stories.

    Well, this sucks!
    Harry deserved to be upgraded because he’s been there since the beginning but freakin’ Darren??? Why? Don’t get me wrong, I like the guy but Chord over Darren ANYTIME! I’m gonna miss him.
    The writers are stupid, once the original cast leaves next year they can sit back and watch the show go downhill.

    what?! I love Chord!

    So they make Darren a regular (when he has ties to no one but Kurt) and let go Chord who’s character had ties to many cast members. I’m getting less and less excited for Glee. I think I’ll stop watching when they start graduating.

    Lee Says:

    Thrilled for Darren and Harry, bummed about Chord though. :/

    Here’s hoping this means a good plotline for Mike and Tina at least.

    WHAT?! You can’t cut Chord! He actually had a storyline going for him! And Sam! Sam is so sweet! He doesn’t deserve to be gone! He’s my favorite character! Poor Chord! Can you imagine what it’s like to be him right now? To have done and entire season and gone on tour and be thinking he has something ahead for him, just to be cut from the show? And what about all the people he’s made friends with, that he’s gonna have to say goodbye to now? And Mercedes? There was a little teaser about Sam and Mercedes at the end of the season! What’s gonna happen to them now?! I don’t know that I even wanna watch the show without my cute, dorky Trouty Mouth. :(

    I loved Sam Evans character. I was a late to the party gleek and he was the reason I started watching. I don’t think I will be able to bring myself to watch next season. I can’t believe Chord Overstreet got the news while still on tour…he deserved better!

    Verena Says:

    Kinda an odd thing. As much as I do love Darren and every song he sings for the show…he doesn’t even go to their school. So, to kick someone off who actually goes to the school and is IN the New Directions…odd. Maybe things will be better for Chord. He’ll put out an album and maybe get some better gigs. Glee’s story lines have really gone down anyway, so I guess I’m not surprised they kick off someone really good.

    i´m about to have a serious heart attacked! are u kiddin me?!! Why?!! i had so much hope for him and mercedes next season! :´( what a pity

    Disappointed. Depressed. What will happen to his story lines!? I wanted my Fabrevans as end game but I’m willing to give a chance to Samcedes. My goodness. They can’t just pair Quinn up with every damn guy on Glee. Her character isn’t a playgirl. I hope Fox and Ryan know what the freak they’re doing. I also hope they know people are tired of Finchel.

    Poor boy. Can you imagine getting the news that you’re not coming back while you’re on tour? My heart breaks for you Chord. :(

    Taylor Says:

    Alright cool, let’s just cut my favorite character. It’s not like he had any good storylines ahead for him or anything. :/
    (Sarcasm, incase you didn’t already pick that up)

    Harry Shum in my opinion is the weakest actor on the show and that’s saying something. I could barley tolerate the few lines he had this season, much less would I want to watch a whole episode where he has dialog. And I actually don’t mind that they are getting rid of Chord his character was dull and he has absolutely no screen presence, nothing special about him to me. Darren Chris is decent at both singing and acting but he has been way to “in your face” this year and I got tired of him pretty quick. I really hope they focus on character development for season 3. Because season 2 was all over the place and all together, just sucked.

    chord’s character grew on me. i loved his storyline – so much more could have developed from what was left off. i’m really hoping to see him next season! he was a wonderful contribution to glee.
