Chord Overstreet Is Coming Back To Glee!

By  | 

The last we heard about Chord Overstreet‘s tenuous position on Glee, fan campaigns were using Twitter and iTunes to keep Sam Evans part of New Directions. And while season 3 has started up without him, TVLine now reports that Chord has signed back on to be a recurring character. Better yet, his return will be at the beginning of December!

What's interesting is that initially Chord turned down the Glee producers' offer to be part-time, because for him it was series regular or nothing. Instead, he decided to focus on his music. But something must have changed, because when Glee came back with a more concrete (but still part-time) offer, he said yes. He'll be back on the show starting with episode 8.

While TVLine has a statement from Chord — “I had the best time on Glee and couldn’t be more excited to be returning” — he hasn't yet confirmed the news on his Twitter.

At least according to creator Ryan Murphy, there doesn't seem to be any bad blood. “We love Chord and have always said that we wanted him back,” he told TVLine. “So here’s an early Christmas present for all the Gleeks—Sam is coming back to McKinley, and just in time for sectionals!”

Forget sectionals—we want to see if Mercedes (Amber Riley) is pissed at Sam for moving away, or if he'll be jealous of her new boyfriend.
