Woo-to-the-hoo! As I predicted, NBC has indeed done the right thing and picked Chuck up for a 13-episode fourth season! A network rep declined to comment.
My Bubble Show Scorecard has been updated with the awesome news!
YAY that is awesome news! thank you so much!
Finally! Now let’s hope they do the next right thing and cancel Heroes. I still want them to finish the plot which can easily be done with a 2 hour movie like Prison Break did.
Let’s not get greedy. Though, if it happens, I’m buying a megamillions ticket.
13 eps sounds about right for what will likely be the final season of “Chuck”. Also sounds right for a mid-season or spring replacement.
chuck will have a 5th season! chuck rocks!!
I am going to be greedy, I want the optional 9 on the back end !
triple ditto!!! Chuck me!!!!
WOOOOOT!!!!! Oh I’m so excited about this. LONG LIVE TEAM BARTOWSKI!!!! YAY.
boo! i want more than 13! 22 ep dammit!
I agree. I mean … I’ll take 13 and I’m glad it’s going to get another year, but come on — this show deserves a full season!
HELL YES!! BEST NEWS EVER!!
Is this real? If it’s real, where are the details?
That’s what I want to know. I’m happy, but I’d like some more info so I can really believe it!
I want to know why this wasn’t on the slideshow of main highlights. This is a big deal!
Ah, there we go!
they should change the show’s name to Captain Awesome and Chuck.
Chuck is so overrated. But yay for it’s fans.
You are overrated. CHUCK RULES!!!
Chuck is underated.
The entire premis of Chuck in the hands of most of the TV world would have jumped the shark in one season.
but No.. The characters grow, the paradgm shifts and still at the center it is a romance.
Haples Victim of Fate Discovers a new destiny.
Moves to maturing hero with hard choices about honor and love
Now we have a Love Team show as the “Heart to Heart” homage sign posted.
Chuck is himself and yet a grown up spy.. who now is helping Morgan become a winner, and will soon have to save his beloved Sister as she is sucked into the malstrom that is Operation Bartowski.
So far THREE core Paradigm shifts and the show still is our #1 Same night watch show with Castle.. all others may sit days on the DVR.
You said it all–and very well. I wouldn’t miss Chuck for anything.
What character growth? The Chuck and Sarah from the end of season two are completely different from the ones we meet at the beginning of season three. That isn’t growth, that’s change. And not for the better. It can’t be over soon enough for me.
You just made my night! Thanks!!
Best news ever!!
Why is this terrible show being renewed while gems like Heroes and Law & Order are canceled?
BEST. JOKE. EVER.
I’m being completely serious. Chuck is a terrible show and Heroes and Law & Order are way more deserving of being renewed.
Heroes? Gem? Bwuahahaha!! Thanks for the laugh! That turd hasn’t been polished since somewhere around Season Two!
Zaphod–crack me up! That is so dead on.
LOL you crack me up Zaphod.
Because NBC is in business to lose as much money as possible, so they renew their higher rated shows ahead of their lesser… oh wait.
Didn’t Chuck at least maintain Heroes’ ratings, if not improve on them? Thought I read that somewhere.
I was just making a small joke. Apparently *too* small.
haha I figured there was a joke, I just thought you were mocking Chuck, not Heroes.
Heroes and Law and Order used to be gems, but are both way past their primes. Neither is as good as they used to be. I think Chuck has just gotten even better this season.
Heroes is a terrible one-season-wonder. Chuck gets better every season. OK? OK.
Not even one season. Season 1 post-”5 Years Gone” was anticlimactic and contrived.
Thanks, I needed a laugh.
LOL, you Chuck fans are so easy. I’m gonna go back under my bridge now.
Ridiculous comment aside (of Chuck being… I can’t even say it) you don’t need to hate on Chuck just because your shows are in danger, it doesn’t have anything to do with the quality or renewal worth of something else.
That said, HATERS TO THE LEFT. CHUCK IS AWESOME.
LOL @ you!
You have got to be kidding me? Hey I love Heroes but even my lack of genius recognizes the amazing super show that is Chuck! Heroes has been slumping a bit. Stil… I hope it gets renewed as well.
It’s being renewed because NBC loves to lose money and promote garbage….Cancel Chuck NBC there is still time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
BAN THIS @$$HOLE WHILE THERE’S STILL TIME!!!!!!!
People need to realize not everyone has a good sense of humor or enjoys romance. I just have to say I would hate to live a life where Chuck is a Terrible Show. Life is too good to not have humor or romance.. Be Well Frankie
because law and order the csis are all the same there is nothin new to tv chuck did that something new somethin fresh watch all of those and pretty soon you will see the same plot the same enematic story base
Yeah your comments aren’t needed Deebo get lost.
This show is not terrible, it’s one of the best shows on TV. I don’t think you’re watching the right show..
It’s almost 21 seasons in New York…You see the same thing time and again…I love the show don’t get me wrong but there aren’t the same cases in NYC as in LA…the demographics are different…There are the Mob Types as a dominate figure in L&O do you think they will have that in LA?
I foresee gangs, illegal immigration, murder for hire celebs, It will be a fresh spin on it.
And Chuck is a great show shows that even us NERDS can be something great in this world.
