Say It Ain’t So Sam: Chord Overstreet Will Not Return for Glee Season 3
Glee fans who loved Season 2 might be a little upset come Season 3 this upcoming year. Why though? Well one of Glee’s newest faces will not be returning this coming school year. Glee family and fans became heartbroken this weekend when Glee confirmed that Chord Overstreet, who plays Sam, in the hit TV series will not be returning for Season 3.
Chord Overstreet, who played Sam on the hit TV series Glee, joined the show earlier this year for Season 2 of the award winning comedy series. He appeared as a transfer student and quickly made his way into the Glee club after performing Bruno Mars Billionaire. Through out the season, Overstreet was involved with Diana Agron (Quinn) in a relationship and then later Naya Rivera (Santana) in a relationship. His latest love interest was Mercedes which fans got a sneak peek of in the Season finale of Season 2. However, the latest news have left fans wondering if the relationship could even still occur.
Through out his time on Glee, Overstreet performed multiple songs such as Billionaire by Bruno Mars, Baby by Justin Bieber, Somebody To Love by Justin Bieber and Lucky with fellow castmate Diana Agron by Colbie Caillat. He most definitely was a new fan favorite among the Glee gang.
The Glee star, who learned of his fate, earlier this week tweeted the following:
The news, which broke earlier this morning, has left Glee fans wondering “What happened” and “Why?” as Ryan Murphy makes some major cast changes for the highly anticipated upcoming Season 3. Along with this announcement however also came word that Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr would become full time cast members. However, Glee fans wanna know where Sam is going.
Something worth noting is that while Sam is not longer a character on the show Glee, this doesn’t mean the character will totally vanish. What to we mean? We do mean there is still a possibility the character could make guest appearances on the show. Hope that cheers some of you up! AND, that means the potential for the relationship is still on! Or so we think so! Aren’t they just adorable together?
However, Luner on Theatre thinks with the success of Glee that Chord Overstreet will not vanish for good. We are sure this face will definitely pop up on Glee again this upcoming season and that you will see him in other places doing big things soon!
