Chord Overstreet Will Return to Glee as a Recurring Player

Well played TVLine! Bet your 4th of July weekend stats are looking good!

You know that weekend brouhaha over Glee producers not picking up Chord Overstreet’s option to become a series regular?

Chord Overstreet OUT!”  screamed the TV Line headline, followed by verbiage that made it seem as if, other than possible guest appearances,   Chord would NOT be appearing on Glee in Season 3.

Now a few days have passed and and TV Lines’ website hits are undoubtedly up there’s a new post that says, essentially, NEVER MIND.

Glee fans crying foul over show’s decision not to pick up Chord Overstreet’s Season 3 contract option can all just simmer down now. While it’s true that he wasn’t promoted to series regular along with co-stars Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr., an insider has confirmed what TVLine originally reported — he also wasn’t fired and, in fact, is invited to continue on, same as usual, as a recurring player.

“His option to be a series regular was just not picked up at this time, ” clarifies the source. “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. He and his reps have been told that he is welcome back to Glee, and everyone hopes he will show up on August 10 when filming begins.”

Seriously dude? SERIOUSLY? Sigh.  Next time you cry wolf, I’ll be looking the other way. And actually, you did this once before.

RemusL you were right
