Hello geek stunt casting: Chuck producer Chris Fedak just announced at Comic-Con that none other than Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, will play a villain in the show’s final season. Hamill will appear at the start of the season, and will be one of a couple villain characters being added for season 5. Fedak says he’d also like to have Linda Hamilton back at some point in the season.

Then, Fedak hinted [potential spoiler alert] that “someone might not survive this season. And it’s going to be big.”

Could Chuck continue beyond in the final season in another form? Could we expect a spin-off? “Definitely,” Fedak says. “We always loved the idea that, with our show, it’s always a continuing adventure. I always loved the the fact there could be [for instance] a Casey and Morgan half-hour adventure. The ending is a prologue for the beginning.”

With Morgan getting the Intersect, Fedak says, “Everybody behaves differently when they have it. Let’s put it this way: By the third episode, Morgan will have frosted his tips.”

The cast is asked how they want Chuck to end: Zach Levi says: “Awesomely.” Joshua Gomez says simply, “I don’t.” Adam Baldwin says, “With the death of Vik … Here’s my real answer: I’m still not convinced it will end this year.”

But, still, showrunners insist it’s the final season. Said Levi on the end of Chuck: “It’s a little bittersweet for sure,” says Levi, who choked up saying goodbye to the crowed and thanking fans. “But we get one more season where we get to hang out. We get to say goodbye to each other and we get to say goodbye to you, and has a really rare thing in television.”

As the cast and producers said goodbye to the Comic-Con crowd that has supported the show for so long, fans gave them a standing ovation.

    Sounds promising.

    But not promising enough to start watching the show again. Sorry, Chuck, but you’re terrible now.

    • John Charles

      Disagree!

      Chuck is not terrible now. This past season was completely awesome. Can’t wait to see how they wrap it up!

    Chuck has never been better. I’m still hoping that someone like NetFlix pick it up as original programming. Rabid fans. Always polls as a top 5 show. Direct, active sponsor support. Character chemistry that is off the charts. Do it!

    Yay! Why didn’t I see this casting coming? It seems so obvious, lol! Ah, Chuck. I hate goodbyes, so it’s with a heavy heart that I’ll be watching next season.

    I’m hopeful that at some point we will get to see Morgan duel Mark Hammil with swords. Also prior to this Casey must be the one to say, “It’s a trap”.

    Making a sidekick the center of attention is a stupid move (with Morgan becoming the Intersect), but the resignation that this is the end of the show makes me believe the producers just aren’t interested any more. Why? With the CW and basic cable networks available, “Chuck” should be the object of a bidding war because of it’s established audience.

    So, I think Warner Bros. should turn the reigns over to new producers and have the show continue.

    I can always count on CHUCK for awesome guest casting. Starting from John Laroquette, Scott Bakula, Chevy Chase, Linda Hamilton, Timothy Dalton, and now to Luke Sywalker himself Mark Hamill. Goodness, I will so miss this show.
    That was a great last panel. You can really tell what a dedicated cast and fans the show has. Season 5 will be epic!

  • othermother

    I LOVE CHUCK!! Wait, so if Glee fans are gleeks, what are we? Chuckies?

    • kristine c.

      lol. that sounds like a drink. we are Chucksters. :))

    • Andrei

      How about Chuckleheads?

      • Kristin

        Nailed it.

  • Darryl

    Looking forward to Chuck. NBC is in real problems now. Chuck is a staple for NBC and it will do well on Fridays.

  • Loni

    I watched the panel on nbc.com and wow, what a fun and wonderful cast! I’m so glad Chuck got another season, even if it’s the last.

  • larryk

    Love this show! I don’t even want to think about it ending!One of the best casts on T.V. Hope someone saves it!

  • linksoflondonsale

    Great article. I can¡¯t wait to hear more about your research tool. If it is as good as your other products, then you will have another winner. Your article pretty much summed up what I have been seeing too. Great to see some hard data.
