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.


@ Corinne.
Um, no. They didn't promote him to regular, so he decided to leave. He could have stayed as a recurring character, but he chose to focus on music. He probably wanted back on the show still, but now the producers know they can't just keep him around, promoting Darren first even though Chord was there longer.


I actually like the idea of Sam and Mercedes so it will be interesting to see it actually play out on screen. I think Quinn should get a totally new guy who knows maybe she will fall for Samuels character. I m interested to know what they are going to do after graduation with the seniors. They should have broken the season up.


Um, actually the show got rid of him, he wanted to remain on the show. So maybe just maybe he tried to do something else with his life and when he felt fulfilled he was able to agree to come back. Stop being haters.


yeah... for this season i miss them as a couple... quinn and sam, no chemistry anymore for puck and quinn....


I know, it's pathetic. Glee was merciful to take him back. Hope he gets with Quinn; I like them as a couple. But she needs to get her shit together first.


basically he made a terrible decision to leave Glee. sure the show is kind of a joke, but he is no star, glee is the only thing that made him one! so i guess he realized he made the wrong move leaving and came crawling back to them. im surprised they let him back?


So basically his solo career backfired and glee is his fallback?

Glee Quotes

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?


I'm gonna miss all of you. I love you guys.
