Overstreet joined the cast midway through Glee's second season, but when his option to return as a regular was not picked up for a third season, he left the series. Overstreet did return to the show as a recurring guest star last season, and it was first reported earlier this month that he was in negotiations to come back full time.

All 15 of Glee's series regulars from Season 3 (including Lea Michele, Chris Colfer, Cory Monteith) will return in some capacity this year as the series follows story lines at McKinley High in Ohio and in New York. Glee's fourth season premieres in its new night and time slot on Thursday, September 13 at 9PM.
