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.”

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!

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. -_-

noooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

WTF

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?

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.

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 .

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.

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…

glee is all about the boys rachel is pathetic letting be treated like trash and quinn the same after what finn did at graduation not break up with him.
finn is a hypocrite

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!

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.

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.

I’m absolutely devastated! I love his character and now what about Samcedes?!

I literally just screamed at the computer. This is the stupidest thing. Seriously. Ryan Murphy, I’m no longer a fan on you and I will be watching Glee just for Mark Salling and Dianna Agron. That is all. PS: This isn’t the stupidest thing, YOU are.

Why?!?!!? I live Chord! Sam is awesome! I am crying so much right now. This is so stoopid! Sam Evans is amazing and the show will not be the same without him! Ugh, this is SO DUMB!!!!

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. That’s my opinion anyone who ******* can suck it lol I was looking forward to the Mercedes/Sam “thing”

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 :’( :’( :’(

I’m getting more and more depressed as news keeps coming in about Glee.
First, the original cast will all graduate and be replaced and now Sam won’t be there for 3rd season!!!!!!
What is going on??????? Ryan Murphy needs to start listening to the fans and not whatever is going on in his head!!!

he was the best thing to happen in season 2 and they’re cutting him off? if ryan murphy thinks the show will still be a hit when the original cast leaves he’s delusional, so he better hold em tight until he’s got them

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? Screw introducing 4 new characters next season! With graduation being tossed about for season 3′s finale, we need to spend as much time with the characters we know and love more than ever!

Nooooooooooo :(
His character was so adorable and sweet, and ugh the storyline with him and Mercedes.

She finally got herself a love interest, and now this?
DAMN IT, RYAN MURPHY.

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”.

What about continuity?! They do make some odd decisions!

super angry!!! ever!!!
