Chuck‘s final season continues to get more intriguing. Last week producers revealed Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, will guest star as a villain at the start of the fifth season. Now EW has learned another actor from major sci-fi franchise is getting on board: Matrix star Carrie-Anne Moss.

The former Ms. Trinity will have a multi-episode arc as Gertrude Verbanski, “a former spy who now runs Verbanski Corp, the chief rival of Chuck’s new spy company. She’s ruthless and deadly, yet she also has a weak spot for one John Casey — her old rival.”

Producers of the NBC cult fav teased to Casey (Adam Baldwin) getting a love interest for the final batch of 13 episodes at Comic-Con last week, and earlier today news broke that Craig Kilborn would guest as a villain on the show. After The Matrix trilogy, Moss appeared in Disturbia and has done voice over on several videogame titles.

      • Ed

        What? You don’t want it limping around waiting to be shot like “Heroes”, do you?

  • Faith

    Hits keep on coming (in a good way). Chuck Me is apt :D.

  • erika

    goosebumps!!she’s certainly worth the wait, Casey!

  • Spike

    That’s awesome news! They do love the guest stars on this show!

    My want dream for the season 5 finale would be to have Chuck Norris guests as Chucks granddad…

    SO MUCH WIN!

    • Cameron J

      Holy cow, I haven’t even followed Chuck and I’d watch that. xD

    • JA

      I think he’d fit better on the Casey/Coburn family tree.

    • Aiden

      That would be amazing! Then there’s gonna be guest star nerd-gasm the entire season. They’ve already got Mark Hamill, Luke Skywalker himself, guest starring in addition to this!

  • Elitegundam

    Some good guest stars! So much potential in Chuck :( Half action, half comedy, half geek. There’s a lot they could do, if they were given another couple seasons ;) Anyway, looking forward to final? season of Chuck, in all it’s glory!!

  • Kevin

    Who knows KUNG FU? Chuck. Casey. Morgan. Captain Awesome. The Jeffster. :)

  • djshutle

    ONLY GETTING BETTER! Love the CHUCK!

  • Soylent Green

    Love it! But I’m so sad this will be the final season…figured they could get at least another 3-4 good seasons outta this GREAT show. I will enjoy it while I can I guess. ;)

  • tracy bluth

    Yay for Chuck scoop!! I think she’ll be great on the show, and I’m definitely looking forward to Mark Hamill.

  • kevin

    craig kilborn? that guy’s a joke. i’m surprised he’s still relevant in the business…

  • Kay Lhota

    Can’t wait for Season 5 of CHUCK on NBC. I’ve loved this series since it began in 2007. It’s just the quirky, action-packed, adventure, spoofy, romantic comedy that appeals to my sensibilities.

    • LAJackie

      Mine too. I’m disappointed that we’re not getting a full season but grateful that we’re at least getting 13 episodes. It was decent of NBC to allow them to wrap everything up. I will miss Chuck, Casey, Sarah and the Buy More gang though.

      • Katie

        There better be one more appearance of jeffster. I love those guys

      • Heather P

        I hope they extend the season like they did last year. I love Chuck.

      • Kurt Russell

        Extend to full season! Or everyone should fill NBCs office by mailing in all of their used computer equipment. I have just one question: NBC What are you going to put on that is better? You have about a 1 in 5 shot at gettig better ratings with something else. So, don’t piss people off and garner a little loyalty.

      • Lin

        Of course, I heard that season 4 was originally only planned for 13 eps, so maybe they will round 5 up to a full load. Although, I hope they really do ramp things up from last year. They cut back on the physical comedy and action and Chuck was way too competent and confident. I fell in love with the goof-up, everyday kind of guy Chuck and his girlish screams.

      • RS7580

        My absolute favorite show. Soooo bummed that this will be the last season. I hope they do a good job wrapping it up.

  • chrystal

    I think its great that karrie will be on chuck

  • eyeheartnyc

    Chuck is really pulling out the big guns for it’s final season. Way to go!

  • artgrl

    finally Casey gets a love interest!! can’t wait!! CHUCK rules!!!!

    • kake79

      I had kinda’ hoped he’d get together with his ex now that she knows he’s still alive.

  • Ck

    I loved Carrie Anne on FX: The Series. Unfortunately she was only on that show for the first season.
