ChordOverstreetBackOnGlee230.jpgAfter all the drama, Chord Overstreet is officially returning to Glee!

The 22-year-old actor left the show last season after seeing co-star Darren Criss (Blaine) promoted to a series regular role. He was upset that he didn't get the same treatment. The writers handled the parting of ways by saying that Chord's character, Sam Evans, moved out of state after his father lost his job.

But now Overstreet will have a multi-episode arc in December. Co-creator Ryan Murphy said in a statement that the show has "always loved" Chord, calling his return " ... an early Christmas present for all the Gleeks ... just in time for sectionals!"

Added Chord: "I had the best time on Glee and couldn't be more excited to be returning."
