Chord Overstreet is off 'Glee', but others are back
For all you Gleeks out there, you'll be saddened to hear that McKinley transfer student Sam Evans may be off the show, but that's okay, because Blaine and Mike are going to be regular characters to make up for it. For The Juice*, this is mostly clicks and whistles, but surely some of you are glad to hear it.
Deadline.com says Chord Overstreet's option to be a series regular was not picked up, as evidenced by his tweet via @chordoverstreet, "well its been a good yr too bad its over, time for summer and starting fresh". Meanwhile, Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr. will be back full-time. To be fair, Chord may come back as a guest star, but Criss and Shum are the new full-timers now.
None of this helps Ashley Fink, who was a recurring guest star in nearly every episode as Lauren Zizes -- it seems she's getting scaled back a bit until the end of next season, when most of these kids are supposed to graduate, anyway.
