Although this news isn’t 100% confirmed by an “official” announcement from NBC, there’s multiple sources confirming that everyone’s favorite nerd/spy Chuck is getting another season on the newtork. That’s right Chuck fans, it looks like the intersect has dodged the cancellation bullet once again and will be back next year with more new episodes for season five.
Like with its previous renewals, it looks like NBC will be giving the nerd spy series thirteen episodes for season five with the option to add more if the show does well enough. As you may recall, Chuck pretty much made a career of living “on-the-bubble,” with cast, crew and fans never sure if NBC will give the show a full season, or if it will get a new season at all.
The show’s renewal this time seems especially amazing considering the rather low ratings it has had over the last weeks, down from even its normal mediocre levels. But with all the fan support, other series being cancelled and lots of other unknown variables, it makes sense that NBC would give the green light to a show that’s a consistant performer with a loyal fan base and reasonable cost to produce.
Whatever the reasons, we’re happy the show is coming back. How about you guys, are you happy Chuck is getting another season? Or, is it time for the show to exit gracefully?
