Chord Overstreet Previews Return to Glee

at . Comments

Chord Overstreet makes his return to Glee on next week's "Hold on to Sixteen," and the actor is open about the reasons why he didn't accept the show's offer to appear right away on season three of the Fox hit.

“I wanted to do a bunch of recording and take time to do that,” the 22-year-old actor/singer tells EW. “Luckily, everything kind of opened back up [in my schedule] so I could jump back in."

And jump back in he will, literally: look for Sam to take up synchronized swimming.

Welcome Back, Sam

The official Fox preview for the episode alludes to where Finn and Rachel come across their former singing friend, while Overstreet says he's asked to help New Directions win Sectionals.

"He tries to kind of pick everything back up where he left off and he realizes that everything has changed a little bit since he’s gone. He has to kind of re-adapt a little bit.”

But, don't worry, not everything has changed: look for Santana to still make fun of the kid she refers to as "Trouty Mouth." For how long will Sam stick around this time?

“We’re playing it by ear, having fun and just enjoying doing that and doing music also," Overstreet says.

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?
