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, JustJared.com 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 SAD to see Chord Overstreet leave Glee?

    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.

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! WHY!? WHY?! WHY?! UGH!!!!! Ryan Murphy is REALLY starting to get on my nerves!!!
    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

  • PuckIsPerfect

  • Will

    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.

  • Tatiana Altaz

    TOO SAD!!!!!!!! :(

  • kaiiiii

    NO NO NO NO
    WHATT! HOW CAN THIS HAPPEN ?? THATS LIKE NOT RETURNING FINN OR RACHEL! HOW COULD THIS HAPPEN … IM SPEECHLESS.

  • Nicky

    What da F?!?!?!
    he was one of the only good things about season 2 and I really wanted to see where the storyline of him and Mercedes will go to.
    this sucks!!!

  • alex

    THIS IS NOT COOOOL!

  • alex

    THIS IS NOT COOL! I LOVE SAM

  • janine

    I think it is a shame that they gave the boot to chord.. I really liked his character and mercedes finaly had a BF

  • Chloe

    NOOOOOOOOO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!! NOT SAM!!!!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! AND HELL YEAH WHAT ABOUT SAM AND MERCEDES?God!!!! And whyt the hell is his hair brown? O_O

  • Tamar

    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

    NO THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!!!
    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

    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.

  • Rosa

    Sad? No. Devastated? Most defiantly!!! :( I just may give up glee because of this as much as I love the show

  • Eliasel

    Im sorry that Sam is leaving but they should have never replaced Matt with him

  • Vanessa

    WHUUT!? Hell to the freakin NO! Imma die without him :’(

  • Calvin

    hell no…
    i’m gonna miss sam for sure..fortunately, Quinn stays in the show…
    if she left too,i would kill myself =((

  • http://asianalison Alison

    But..I will still watch Glee

  • chaz

    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.

  • mae

    i hate this!!i love the sam and quin tandem!!…im 2 months pregnant now and sooo not happy about this!….I JUST HOPE THAT ryan murphy could straightened up his MIND!!!!!!!! and bring back Sam.. I dont know if I’ll be able to watch the next season without Sam,.,,

    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!
    I CANT WAIT :D

  • hannah

    Chord was offered a 10 episode contract but denied it. If anyone to blame it’s himself

  • Bella
