It wasn't all good news for the Gleeks
at Comic-Con, though. Earlier in July, it was reported that Chord Overstreet had not been promoted
to series regular, but it was generally believed that he would continue to be a strong presence on the show. Fans learned Sunday, however, that Overstreet is one cast member we will have to say "good-bye" to. According to Falchuk, "We wanted him back because we like Chord personally and had some good stories planned for him and with Mercedes (Amber Riley)." But despite being offered a 10-episode return, the actor decided to explore his opportunities elsewhere. "We can’t force him to work," Falchuk added. "We told him to go with God."
