I don't know about you, but Glee's season 5 finale sure didn't leave me with the impression that Chord Overstreet's Sam Evans would be back for season 6...and yet, E! Online has announced that Chord Overstreet will indeed be back for Glee's sixth and final season.
Chord is like a boomerang. He just keeps coming back to us!
So we're sure Gleeks everywhere will be happy to hear we'll be getting to see more of Sam Evans' celeb impressions as Chord Overstreet confirmed to E! News that he's "back to work in September" for the final 13 episodes.
"I assume I will be in all of the episodes," Overstreet spilled to E! News at the premiere ofThe Expendables 3, where he was supporting his roommate, Glen Powell. (You know, typical roommate bonding for a Monday night!)
But how, exactly, will Sam be incorporated into season 6 of Glee? Especially now that it's been spilled that Rachel will definitely be back at McKinley?
And while he doesn't know a whole lot about the storylines the Glee writers are cooking up, he was able to tease, "I know I am back in Ohio at the school." (Fingers crossed he's still modeling!) It looks like Sam will be interacting with some of McKinley High's newbies as Glee is currently casting five new sophomores, including twin Cheerios (one male and one female) and a gay football stud.
Overstreet also added, "I know the writers are three to four episodes in right now and from what I've heard it's really fun stuff." Fun? On Glee? Never!
I know, right? Lately Glee has been a freakin' drama fest. Are you excited to see the show get back to its roots with glee club at McKinley for the final season? (And are you excited to still be seeing Sam in season 6??)
