‘Glee’ Season 4 Makes Chord Overstreet Series Regular
Welp, it's official. These days you seem to here more about who will be around for 'Glee's highly-anticipated fourth season rather than who won't but at least one trouty-mouthed star is sitting pretty. After being introduced in the second season, and largely sitting out the third, it seems Chord Overstreet is back full time for 'Glee's fourth outing, but what does it mean for the rest of the cast?
According to The Hollywood Reporter, 'Glee's Chord Overstreet has solved whatever conflict led him to depart the series following its second season, and signed onto the show's closely-followed fourth season as a series regular. Overstreet will hang back on the Lima, Ohio side of things, joined by new series regular Jacob Artist as Jake, half-brother to ‘Glee’ bad-boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman.
The news follows Overstreet's turbulent career on 'Glee,' which began with the second season but ended thereafter, set to focus on his musical career. Following a stint on ABC series 'The Middle,' Chord returned to 'Glee' midway through its third season, now upping his role to series regular for the fourth, as previously rumored.
All told, nearly all 15 of 'Glee's series regulars from the third season will return in at least some capacity this year as the series moves between Ohio and New York. The series is also negotiating with 'The Glee Project' winners Alex Newell and Samuel Larsen to return for the fourth season, while Damian McGinty will not return immediately.
