As Matt Webb Mitovich reported, Chord Overstreet will not be back to Glee this fall — at all.According to Falchuk, Overstreet was offered a deal to return for 10 episodes with an eye towards becoming a series regular at midseason, but the 22-year-old actor declined. Added Falchuk, “We wanted him back because we like Chord personally and had some good stories planned for him and with Mercedes. He decided he would have opportunities elsewhere that he would like to pursue, and we can’t force him to work, so we wished him well.”
That means the romance between Mercedes and Sam on Glee will end, and that Sam and Quinn on Glee won´t be a couple either.
Sam leaves Glee, and all the Gleeks will need some sort of closure, but the showrunners will have to come up with an idea as to why Sam leaves Glee and why Sam leaves the school.
Chord Overstreet is out from Glee, but both Darren Chris and Harry Shum Jr are upgraded to full time regulars (they are also helping on The Glee Project).
And it also appears that while graduating this year, Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith aka Rachel, Kurt and Finn are coming back to Glee after all.
