What kind of crazy Chord Overstreet has not been picked up as a series regular on Glee, but Darren Criss and Harry Shum Jr. have been! Chord could come back as a guest star though! That’s kinda sad…Ashley Fink’s time on Glee has been scaled back too!
According to Deadline,
Itâ€™s a case of good news/bad news for Glee fans courtesy of Ryan Murphy. First the good: Darren Criss (Blaine) and Harry Shum Jr. (Mike) have officially been upgraded to full-time series regulars, effective this fall with the start of Season 3. And now for the badâ€¦ Chord Overstreetâ€™s series regular option has not been picked up. However, a source close to the show says the actor â€” who joined the Fox hit last fall in the recurring role of McKinley transfer student Sam Evans â€” could return as an occasional guest star. Late Friday, Overstreet issued a cryptic tweet saying, â€œItâ€™s been a good year. Too bad itâ€™s over. Time for summer and starting fresh.â€ Additionally, another new member of New Directions, Ashley Fink, who was a recurring guest star this past season despite appearing in almost every episode, will remain a guest star and her presence may be scaled back. The news comes as the cast of Glee is wrapping their concert tour. It also comes two weeks after series co-creator Ryan Murphy raised eyebrows when he told Ryan Seacrest that most of the showâ€™s primary characters would graduate by the end of next season. â€œThe show to me is about the way you express yourself as you start to move out into the world as a fresh, young person,â€ he later clarified to Deadline’s sibling site TVLine. â€œDo we really want to have an eight-year [high school] senior? The only way somebody could stay on the show is if they flunk, and that is always a possibility. I think Brittany is pulling straight Fs.â€
