This September, the second season of Glee will be hitting the DVD and Blue Ray market, but it looks like Sam Evans won’t be hitting the screens as a regular character when the show returns for its third season. Chord Overstreet, the actor behind Evans, had his option to become a series regular declined by Ryan Murphy, the show’s creator, and the staff. The character of Evans was part of an is-he-or-isn’t-he gay storyline.
Originally, Overstreet’s character was slated to be the boyfriend of Kurt Hummel played by Chris Colfer. Instead, the chemestry between Overstreet and Diana Agron, who plays the cheerleader Quinn, meant that the character went in a very different direction.
Still, the show will have a pick up with the character of Blaine, played by Darren Criss, becoming a regular. Blaine is the boyfriend of Kurt. Harry Shum Jr, who plays Mike, also has a steady gig starting next year.
“Glee” will add a new cast member through its summer reality series, “The Glee Project,” and will see major turnover after this season, when it graduates several of its cast members, including Cory Monteith.
