Chord Overstreet Dropped From Glee Cast

by at . Comments

The Glee community is reeling from a major shakeup after the surprising news that Chord Overstreet, who plays Sam, is being dropped from the cast.

Meanwhile, fan faves Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr. were promoted to regulars. That's great, but largely overshadowed by Overstreet's ouster.

Ashley Fink, who recurred on season two as Lauren, will return next year, although she has not received the same upgrade as Criss and Shrum.

“well its been a good yr too bad its over, time for summer and starting fresh," Chord - who could still recur occasionally - Tweeted after the news.

It was not immediately clear why the Fox hit decided not to bring back the popular, 22-year-old actor as part of the third season's cast.

What do you think of this surprising news, Glee fans?

The show evolves.....


God that sucks. I liked him. Boo!


But that can't be right... They can't just drop his character. It doesn't explain the Samcedes line at all... I think this is just RM pulling our legs...


i think he was great, but life continue, n the show too


Lynn - He wasn't being racist! He just said "Asian kid!"


Whata racist ass u r.


sam wasn't cutting it. blaine is great, but the asian kid a regular?? he can't even sing. not sure the show will survive if finn graduates; he is the heart of the show. and the relationship b/t kurt and his dad is the best; love the way the dad plays his role; outstanding role model.


But him and Santana! What will happen to them?!


Thank you!! His character blew. He was a carbon copy of Finn with less singing skill or staying power.
