When Glee returns for its third season Sept. 20, there's one student who won't be roaming the halls. TVLine.com reports that show creators have decided not to renew Chord Overstreet's contract as a series regular.
However, a source tells TVLine Overstreet's character, transfer student Sam Evans, could return to the series as an occasional guest star.
"The show to me is about the way you express yourself as you start to move out into the world as a fresh, young person," Murphy told TVLine. "Do 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 [Heather Morris' character] Brittany is pulling straight Fs."
