Bittersweet news for Gleeks: Chord Overstreet (Sam) is out while Darren Criss (Blaine) and Harry Shum Jr. (The Other Asian a.k.a. Mike) have been bumped to series regulars. A source tells Deadline that Chord could return as a guest star but what we only know for certain is that he'll be working on a solo album soon.

Chord tweeted over the weekend, “Well, it’s been a good year. Too bad it’s over; time for summer and starting fresh.”

Are you sad that Chord is leaving Glee? What do you think will happen to Sam and Mercedes (last seen holding hands!)? Tell us in a comment!
