Chord Overstreet returning to Glee

GleeChord Overstreet is near to reaching a deal to return to Fox’s musical comedy series Glee.

TVLine reports that Overstreet is in final talks with producers on Glee to reprise his role of Sam on a recurring basis. This comes just months after the actor decided not to take up the producers offer of a recurring contract – sparking headlines and a campaign by fans to get Overstreet back in the cast. Now it seems though differences have been put aside and it’s a pretty done deal that the actor will return to the cast. According to TVLine if the deal does go ahead – and it almost seems certain to – Overstreet will reprise his role of Sam from the 8th episode onwards.
