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!

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.

SO BAD IF CHORD OVERSTREET RETURNING ON GLEE SEASON 3

CHORD OVERSTREET MUST STAY ON GLEE PLEASE RYAN MURPHY DON’T MAKE CHORD RETURNING PLEASE …….

This is unfair! why Chord leave Glee and Ashley not leave the show? I’m sorry but Lauren is not more important than Sam…Just saying

Ugh, nooooo! Please no! I love Chord and Sam is my favorite male character on the show. It won’t be the same! :(

leave Chord alone! hes a good singer and should be part of Glee!!!

i kinda liked sam and i’m sad that he won’t be in season 3 but maybe that means that puck and quinn can FINALLY be together!!!
and maybe have a chance to see beth again!!!!

I love Darren, I really do, but NO. RIB, just because he is a cash cow doesn’t mean you should make him a series regular. This probably means he’ll be transferring to McKinley which makes NO SENSE plot-wise.
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.

Not. Cool.

yes im sad :(
i love her voice and what will happen with him and mercedes?they just started dating..come onnn :(

Sad yes, but…the show never gave him anything to do!!! They used him for the first few episodes and then ignored his character all spring.

WTH!!! They are taking of Chord to put Ryan Murphy 0.o now i’m really angry!!! No one wants Ryan …. we want CHORD
Sam Evans rulezz for ever! You guys are going to loss so much audience… He was cute ^^) I dont now if I wan to watch glee now and waht come next taking out Mark(puck)? Corey(Finn)? Oh maybe Lea(Rachel)…. This decison Sucks –’

The only reason Im a little sad is the Mercedes thing. It was nice seeing her happy for a change.
But Sam always bothered me and I never thought that he could really sing.

@55: Yeah they Never give Mercedes a good storyline and they rarely give her the leads in songs. It’s disappointing.
@J: Agreed. The show has lost its fluidity and it’s annoying.

I’m very upset! Sam was one of my fav boys. Sorry, but Harry can’t sing!! Chord can sing and dance and take hi shirt off!!!

Good luck to Chord! But Ryan can’t suck it!

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). ;)

I’m not a big fan of his character, but I love him as part of the group.. This is just so sad..

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?

WTF! noooooooooooooo…i dont like it!

NOOOOOOOOOOO :’(
This is effing stupid. It makes NO sense, they introduced a new storyline involving him in the finale and now he’s GONE??? Hmph :(

He’s half the reason I watch Glee. The other half is Kurt.

NO NO NO how could they do this ? what about his storyline with mercedes ? wtf they cant just keep killing storylines sorry but i think im over glee the only person i loved was chord and lea michele but her character is just toooo clingy and annoying sometimes oh well all good things must come to an end

Catherine @ 07/02/2011 at 1:21 pm

I am disgusted.

NOOOO! Don’t do this RM!!! He is a really good actor!
