Confirmed: Chord Overstreet Headed Back to Glee

at . Comments

Fox has turned strong rumor into reality: Chord Overstreet will soon return to Glee.

Both series creator Ryan Murphy and the actor himself issued statements today, with the former saying: “We love Chord and have always said that we wanted him back. So here's an early Christmas present for all the Gleeks - Sam is coming back to McKinley, and just in time for sectionals!”

Looking Like Bieber

Added Overstreet: "I had the best time on Glee and couldn't be more excited to be returning."

Look for Overstreet's Sam to pop up in December and appear on multiple episodes. We last saw him holding hands with Mercedes on the season two finale, prior to contract negotiations falling apart over the summer and it being revealed on the season three premiere that Sam's family moved away.

Glee itself returns with new episodes on November 1, as we'll meet Damian McGinty's Rory Flanagan, along with Sue's competition for congress. View the official trailer for "Pot O' Gold" NOW.

Glee Quotes

I had sex with you because you got me drunk on wine coolers and I felt fat that day. But it was a mistake.

Quinn [to Puck]

We met right here. I took this man's hand and we ran down that hallway. Those of you who know me know I'm not in the habit of taking the hands of people I've never met before, but I think that my soul knew something that my body and my mind didn't know yet. It knew that our hands were meant to hold each other, fearlessly and forever. Which is why it's never really felt like I've been getting to know you. It's always felt like I was remembering you from something. As if in every lifetime that you and I have ever lived we've chosen to come back and find each other and fall in love all over again, over and over, for all eternity. And I just feel so lucky that I found you so soon in this lifetime because all I want to do, all I've ever wanted to do, is spend my life loving you. So, Kurt Hummel, my amazing friend, my one true love, will you marry me?
