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.

    Laura-C Says:

    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.

    t Says:

    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.

    Laura-C Says:

    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.

    damn Says:

    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.

    Celia Says:

    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.

    Lauren Says:

    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. :(

    Suzanne Says:

    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!

  17. 17
    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.

    P Says:

    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.

    Alright cool, let’s just cut my favorite character. It’s not like he had any good storylines ahead for him or anything. :/

    Kaylee Says:

    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.

    As a person who doesn’t even watch Glee, I’m kinda disappointed by by this, because it means I’ll probably never hear the other verses to “Trouty Mouth.” :(

    Carolyn Says:

    Wtf???!!!!! I’m glad Darren got made a series regular, I think he is great but Harry over Chord?? Are you serious Ryan Murphy! Chord has actually one of the best male voices on the show and his character could have seriously developed next season and we could have actually seen Mercedes have a boyfriend to start the season off with. I absolutely love Glee but seriously WTF.

    I also feel really bad for him considering the cast is still on freaking tour… ugh Ryan Murphy ugh

    jacqueline Says:

    They created a sad, but beautiful, story for Sam, we met his little siblings, fell more in love with and now they CUT HIM OUT?
    Seriously? Sam and Mike Chang are the ONLY guys who are good to the girls… and Sam was good to Kurt in a way no one else was!
    Chord is just so sweet, all the fans love him, the Glee cast loves him… he has the most adorable bromance with Mark!

    Courtney Says:

    Whether Darren is a fabulous actor or not — which by the way I don’t see Darren or Chord ranking over each other in acting, they’re just as good at the other and neither of them are amazing. Although they BOTH are better than Corey — I will not be angry over Ryan Murphy keeping Darren OVER Chord. Darren’s musical talent gives him the right to be on the show regardless and he can act. Now the actor who plays Mike Chang…he can just go. He’s a talented dancer, but his moves are repetitive at this point and he can’t act nor sing. Chord should’ve been kept over HIM, but let’s not start a Darren/Chord war.

  35. 35
    Piper Says:

    WHY? He is one of the best guy characters on the show. What about Samcedes? If he leaves, I will refuse to watch Glee. That’s that.

  36. 36
    Courtney Says:

    Ummm…Piper…did you watch GLEE before he got there or did you just start watching FOR him? Because if he’s leaving, why would that make you stop watching? He might have had scheduling conflicts and they couldn’t work it out which is why he’s not fired, he’s just not a regular. If you stop watching and he comes back for a few episodes – you’ll miss him.

    it’s because he can’t dance. have you ever noticed they never put the camera on him in the dance sequences and if it’s on him, it’s for a brief second or two. both darren and harry dance really well.

    Nicole Says:

    No I am not ready for Chord to go. Ryan Murphy has been really pissing me off a lot about the 3rd season.You just don’t put Sam in relationship with Mercedes and then get rid of Sam. Ugggh. And also I read that they are possibly bringing back Matt Rutherford. But then I am also at the same time happy Harry Shum Jr is gonna be a regualar and gonna have an actual story line.

  42. 42
    Taylor Says:

    As happy as I am about Darren becoming a series regular…I am sad to see Chord go! He was one of my favorites and getting rid of him is such a stupid mistake. Why couldn’t they get rid of Ashley Fink?! I like her and all but her character does nothing! Honestly, Chris is her best friend and I think that’s probably the reason she’s still on there and the only way I see Darren as a series regular is that he must be leaving Dalton and going to McKinley next season.

  43. 43
    Alex Says:

    Okay, Ryan Murphy, I’m really starting to dislike you. First, you break up my Fabrevans, then you create Samcedes, and now you get rid of my favorite guy character. That’s three strikes. I’m probably not gonna watch glee anymore. I love Chord, and I hope he does great with his solo album and stuff now. I was hoping so badly for Fabrevans to end up as endgame but that won’t happen anymore. Glee will never be the same, I hope the writers know that. My heart is broken. So, thanks Ryan Murphy, thanks a lot.

    Krys Says:

    Well, the thing about getting rid of Darren, is that

    A) That would be devastating…

    B) Ryan’s already said that he had a lot in store for the Klaine relationship…

    C) No Blaine means no ties to any of the Warblers anymore either…

    Don’t get me wrong though. I’m very sad to see Chord leaving. I was excited to see Samcedes! I swear, I was giggling to myself so much on the last episode, thinking about what a cute couple they are!!!

    Oh, and some leftover giggles from the Klaine ‘I love you’s, but… Anyway… my best wishes to Chord. :)

    ilovenaya Says:

    This is not fair to Chord. Instead I actually find this ridiculous. Sam’s storyline last year was good, I must say. He falls in love but then have to lose the girl cuz she cheated on him for her ex boyfriend. He even gave her a promise ring. And promise is a really big word. If he were to leave, he’ll be breaking that promise. Is that the kind of message glee wants the viewers to remember? I was looking forward to Sam’s development as a character after having a rough year in season 2 but I am devastated now that he is leaving. Leaving glee would only leave his character in the midst of developing. His storyline of being cheated was actually relatable to teens today and I bet we all wanted to see how he’d overcome this but I guess there’s no hope.

    For Darren and Harry, I’m happy for you but I don’t think I’ll enjoy watching glee after knowing Chord is leaving.
    For the writers of glee, I hope you’re happy with your ridiculous decision.

    J Says:

    @: I know! I was wondering the same thing. This show is notorious for not finishing up story lines as well as inconsistency, though. Glee used to be a good show but now these writers are just kind of ruining it. This isn’t the first and won’t be the last disappointment we’ll see.

    I blame Demi Lovato

    Once they found out they were friends they said eww

    Nathalie Says:

    I really do not think Chord’s character was developed at all last season. It is very difficult to get attached to a character when he is given such sketchy story lines. But things looked promising for more in depth stories, his family hitting hard times and living in a motel, his new romance with Mercedes… Teasers that went nowhere. Strange.
    Too bad we won’t find out more about Sam…I am really very sorry to see him go. I liked Chord.
    As for Harry… I feel that I know him even less than Chord. He is a great dancer and he kisses Jenna a lot. That’s about all I remember him doing in season 1 &2! So if the writers want us to be interested in his character, we need a little more to care.
    Darren… Congratulations, Darren! I don’t quite understand people who say he cannot act because I actually think he is very, very good. I happen to think he, Chris Colfer and Lea Michele have the strongest presence on the screen. (Amber as well, provided she is given more to do). But I am not sure he will have the same impact as a New Direction kid as he had being a Warbler. Hopefully, he won’t be swallowed and lost in the pack. He is going to need some good writing and big stories not to be in Kurt’s shadow and make us forget the swagging dapper charismatic lead singer of the Dalton Academy Warblers. Yes, we loved the blazer. ;-) So I want to see good strong story lines written for him and good songs for him to sing or he might lose some of his Warbler aura. We need to care for Blaine as much as we care for Kurt.
    Nobody told us: is Karofsky staying? Another great potential for good story lines, right there!

    Lailah Says:

    It’s because he dyed his hair isn’t it? *cries*

    I’m so devastated but let’s be honest..Glee has become a sinkin ship anyway. This past season sucked and then after s3 they’re all graduating.

    So thanks Ryan Murphy for givin me a show I loved. An OTP (puckleberry FTW) and taking a dump all over it because of your enormous ego and incredible need for publicity. Thanks so much!!!

    Jerk. -_-

    Athena Says:

    Are they kidding? They murdered several characterizations last season including most of the mains and now they’re removing one of the only storylines and character developments they got right? Are they insane? Glee is going downhill. Fast. I’ve lost interest when they started mangling characters from season 1 (needy Rachel? jerk Finn? Non-existent Beth? Puck being a minor character?) and now no more Sam?

  55. 55
    Louise Says:

    It kinda makes sense to be honest, his family was practically homeless and only came to ohio because of a job, it wouldnt suprise me if they said sam and his family went back home. It would also explain the sam/mercedes storyline, he left over summer.

    I thought it was a bit much pairing them together just because they were without partners, it didnt really make much sense and was quickly introduced at the end of the series.

    That’s not to say I didnt like sam but Chord recently announced a record deal so that could also have a lot to do with it too.

  56. 56
    jj Says:

    I’m really starting to hate Ryan Murphy the truth is that glee has no history not even remember that quinn had a daughter, I wanted quinn and sam he was very sweet to her

    Quinn deserve someone better than finn and puck.

    the only reason I see glee is dianna agron and lea michele .

  57. 57
    Laura-C Says:

    They are cutting down his screen time, not cutting him completely from the show. Calm yourselves. and besides, they wouldn’t cut down someone who is important to Kurt (one of the faves by fans) and who brought a HUGE fan base that Darren Criss had before Glee with Star Kid. It’s a no brainer. I have a hunch Kurt and Blaine will be helping Karofsky this coming year and hopefully get him comfortably out of the closet.

  58. 58
    Haendel Says:

    Ryan Murphy got a great idea last year when Chord was cast and Glee second season see some great moments with him, and now out of the blue they just cut him off, really it’s the dumbest decision ever! I guess there won’t be any glee past 3rd season, not just for the regulars going away but because the ratings itself will drown to the point it won’t be enough… I’m just really upset…

    Angel Says:

    I am furious and disappointed. Sam fit in so well with New Directions and Chord with the Glee cast. It was like he had always been there. Now they ditch him for no reason! I honestly don’t think I’ll continue to watch. All our other favorites are leaving anyway, might as well end it now. It’s like they WANT this show to get cancelled.

    So pissed off!!!! WTF!!! BOYCOT GLEE UNTIL CHORD IS BACK!

  62. 62
    Evie Says:

    Well stop focusing on effin Lea Michele and Cory Monteith’s storyline and all would be good. I’m so sick of the Rachel and Finn storyline. B-O-R-I-N-G Move onto the others who can sing as well and better than Cory.

  63. 63
    Lisa Ann Says:

    Too bad. The actor’s cute as hell. And the character of Sam had a great, home-hitting storyline of a teen who’s family loses their home. It’s a hard, embarassing situation for any young adult, but common in many parts of the country. The way the show portrayed it was very moving.
    There was also the storyline Glee peaked at but never went with: manorexia. Sam had it, you saw it in the Rocky Horror episode, he thought he was flabby & out of shape when he’s anything but. Maybe too many issues in one season. I hope the actor is onto better things. And I do hope the in-the-closet-bully character (cannot remember his name) is back.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I actually really love him!! This pisses me off. No offense to Glee but the gloss is starting to wear off and them getting rid of Chord is just adding to the dissapointment.

    Gosh no! It can happen, Chord is by far the funniest castmember of the show and I know he has things ahead but I’m so so sad that I don’t know if I will handle that :( I love you Trouty Mouth :’( :’( :’(

    Why was Harry Shum, Jr. able to stay on as a regularly recurring character for two seasons while Chord Overstreet can’t be afforded the same option?

    WTF??? I really like Chord’s character Sam, and I cannot believe they would cut him out of the show … and in favor of Harry Shum, Jr.!!! Sorry, but Mike Chang is a character I could live without, while I will really miss Sam.

    Who made that stupid decision??? It looks like many “Glee” fans are unhappy about losing Chord … this whole thing might just backfire for the producers of “Glee”.

    Fans are starting a campaign of buying “Billionaire” on iTunes to send the message that Sam and his poverty storyline have a lot of support. If Chord retains the same non-regular-but-recurring status as last season, that could be enough to keep them from writing him off the show entirely.

    NO. SENSE.

    And what about Samcedes, huh?

    So happy for Darren & Harry, but this is wrong, so wrong. Sam’s character had a lot of potential and they are throwing it away in order to cash in on Darren.

    Bonjour ! Hi ! If this is true … It’s surely a loss for the Glee club. But Chord with all his talents and his new fame will get time to invest on plenty of new projects. I’m sure that if he takes time to choose well among the ones his gona get offered … he will do great. Thank’s to Glee for giving us the chance to notice this other wonderfull human being (talented&witty). ;)

    Well either Chord quit (therefore you can’t blame Ryan Murphy), or Ryan Murphy fired him (and you can blame Ryan) OR….it’s just a stunt.

    I remember on a radio show, where Kevin and Mark said that one of them were gonna be cut or something like that….How do we know this isn’t something similar?

    I feel like Chord being made as a guest isn’t really thought through. I mean, they just stuck his character in a “secret relationship” with Mercedes and now he’s just gonna be like, k peace. I DON’T GET IT. I liked him as an addition to the Glee club and as a regular we can only assume he won’t bei in it anymore.

    Congratulations to Harry though. We always saw him in the glee club so I guess it’s only right that he becomes a regular. :)

    Congratulations to Darren toooo. In my opinion, he is a stand out performer. Him & the Warblers have done some of my favourite songs from the past season. I do wish that rather than getting rid of the Warblers and just keeping Darren as a regular, they would work something out to still have the Warblers hang around every so often.

    But I guess we can’t do much about any of it. I don’t really understand Ryan Murphy and the direction he puts his characters in. It just feels like sometimes the stories just don’t flow throughout the season.

    First of all. he has to put Puck and Lauren together?! ( No offence ) And then he has to break up my favorite couple ( Quinn and Sam ) Because there ” To Perfect ” What the heck?! Isn’t that the point?? There PERFECT for each other. and then he pared up Samcedeies or however you spell it?!?!?! Now he is cutting Sam off?!?!?!!?! UGH!!! I mean if your gonna cut off anybody, cut off Darrin. I still LOVE Darrin but make HIM the guest star, he doesnt even go to McKinley!!! I was looking froward to seeing Sam and Quinn get back together in Season 3 :(!!! This show is Good and everything, but why do this?!?!?!! Going to the worst possible conclusions! Gosh Darnet! I hope Ryan Murphy will see ALL the mistakes he has made, and fix ALL of them!!!! and take chord back <3!!!!! — Maddie

    They barely gave him a chance… So not fair, I hope his time on Glee has given him enough fanbase to come out with an album or two cause I’d love to hear his own music.

    Really? What a strange decision. Has the producer ever seen Darren Criss perform live? I’ve seen him sing on two different talk shows, and quite frankly, his voice wouldn’t win a competition on it’s own without the help of mixers and backup singers. Hopefully they’ll bring Chord back when the others graduate.

    M Says:

    Sam was like the best character on Glee. He was a mix between dorky and cute. How can they get rid of him!?!

    They actually had a storyline going for him, and what about Sam and Mercedes!? Though I don’t ship them, I want to see what happens. Plus, I want him to get back with Quinn, whatever happened to the promise ring?! So many questions left unanswered!

    I love Glee, but I don’t think the show would be as good without the original cast and Chord/Sam on the show.

    I’m happy for Harry and Darren, but I want my Sammy on the show! :,(

    paula Says:

    glad chord is out, no offense to him.

    his character was useless but it wasn’t chord’s fault, it was the writers. they’re just finally doing the right thing. i do feel bad for the character of mercedes but i don’t think sam was good enough for her anyway.

    Thats to bad that he is not returning as a regular, but since we did learned his family had no where to live since I think his dad lost his job(I think that what happened) then that will probably be the way the write him out by moving to another city where his dad get a new job.

    Hello Guys!
    Umm did you just read what Chord just said?
    “Well its been a good yr too bad its over, time for summer and starting fresh.”
    I also have checked other sources confirming that Ryan Murphy even ASKED him but he denied!
    Chord also stated that he wants to continue his music buisness!
    So dont blame this on Ryan ok? Cause without him you have no GLEE!
    and also know this was Chord’s choice (Not that i am saying i hate him) so respect and wait for the damn show!
