Chord Overstreet Will Return to 'Glee,' Probably

Chord OverstreetGleeks, don't completely freak out about this weekend's news that Chord Overstreet won't be returning to 'Glee' as a series regular in the fall. Just because the actor's series regular option wasn't picked up doesn't mean he won't appear on the show at all.

TVLine spoke to an insider, who clarified the situation: "If Chord wants to appear on 'Glee,' the choice is his. The 'Glee' writers like his Sam character, and have plans to write for him."

In fact, the 'Glee' crew is planning for his return. "He and his reps have been told that he is welcome back to 'Glee,'" the insider said, "and everyone hopes he will show up on August 10 when filming begins."

Though frequent guest stars Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr. were signed on as regulars for season 3, New Directions member Ashley Fink will keep her status as recurring guest star in the fall, like Overstreet.

TVLine's insider also pointed out that just because Overstreet won't be a regular in September doesn't mean he won't be promoted during the season. After all, it took Shum two seasons to get his current position.

Tell us: Do you hope Overstreet returns to the show?

It would be a mistake by the producers to not have Chord return. His character adds all sorts of layers of complexity to write to - the good-looking blond hunk with all kinds of insecurities could provide many story lines.

When are y'all going to do something about all the spam posts in comments? It is really getting out of hand.
