See? Told ya he wasn’t gone forever. I’m so Glee smart.
Before the start of season 3, Ryan and co. had decided not to pick up Chord Overstreet (Sam Evans) as a series regular for the new season – and even though showrunner Ryan Murphy expressed an interest in keeping Chord/Sam as a recurring character, Chord declined so that he could put more focus on his music.
But now, Chord misses Glee, and Glee misses Chord (who wouldn’t miss the guy?), so it’s been confirmed that he’s in talks to return to the show around episode 8 this season (with a tentative December air date).
“We missed Chord and Chord missed us,” says a source close to the show. “It’s a win-win.”
Although it hasn’t yet been confirmed how Chord’s character, Sam will be reintroduced. After all, he did kind of, uh, move away? Of course that’s word of
Trouty mouth by Mercedes, so who knows? Hit the comments with your Sam theories! (Mine is that he comes back for a short visit and musses things up for Quinn and Mercedes.)
