According to TVLine, Overstreet and Fox are working on a deal to have Trouty Mouth return to the series in a recurring capacity.
In July, Overstreet left the series after his option to become a series regular was not picked up.
He had an offer to remain on the series as a recurring player, but decided to pursue other projects. Since then, he's popped up on ABC's 'The Middle.'
Overstreet's first episode will likely be Season 3's eighth, set to air in December. No word on how the writers plan to bring the character back.
The deal isn't finalized yet, but TVLine reports it's as good as done.
The show explained Overstreet's off-screen exit by having his character, Sam Evans, move away from McKinley High School. Season 2 ended with Sam starting a romance with Mercedes, but her character has since moved on to a new beau.
