Not only is Chord Overstreet (Sam Evans) expected to return for Glee Season 4, Deadline says he's in talks to be bumped up to series regular. Also, 15 of the other Glee "regulars" have accepted the invitation to return for the fall 2012 season.

To quote Deadline's report, "Leading couple Lea Michele and Cory Monteith are among those likely to be in most if not all episodes. Also coming back are Matthew Morrison, Jane Lynch, Chris Colfer, Naya Rivera, Kevin McHale, Darren Criss, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Jayma Mays, Dianna Agron, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr and Heather Morris. Their workload will vary as the show once again will work to accommodate the large cast and make room for some new characters."

Glee Season 4 will premiere on a new night and time — Thursday, Sept. 13, from 9 to 10 p.m. The new Glee cast will include Kate Hudson and Sarah Jessica Parker in multi-episode story arcs, with lots of other changes for McKinley High since the senior class has now graduated.
