Well, if you’re a fan of NBC’s Chuck, as we certainly are here at The Flickcast, then this news will make you very happy indeed. In spite of its previously uncertain future, it seems NBC has finally decided to give the show more love and has officially announced its premiere date. Chuck will return on January 10, 2010 with a two-hour premiere episode and then move to its regular time, Mondays at 8/7C on January 11.
To commemorate this special event (Hey, we think its special) our friends at NBC have sent us a video featuring series star Zach Levi talking about season 3 and offering a sneak peek at all the action, suspense, romance and cool guest stars. Who might some of those cool guest stars be, you may wonder? Glad you asked.
Actors making appearances on the show this season include Angie Harmon as Sydney, an enemy operative; Brandon Routh as CIA Agent Daniel Shaw; Robert Patrick as Colonel Keller, a soldier and spy from Casey’s past and Kristin Kreuk as Hannah, a potential love interest for Chuck.
Also, Armand Assante guest stars as dictator Premier Goya, who is the target of an assassin; Steve Austin will play Hugo Panzer, who becomes entangled in Chuck’s first solo mission and Vinnie Jones will play Carl Stromberg, an arms dealer.
Of course, also returning for the season are series regulars Colonel John Casey (Adam Baldwin) and Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski), Joshua Gomez as Morgan Grimes, Sarah Lancaster as Chuck’s sister Ellie and Ryan McPartlin as “Captain Awesome.” Now that sound great, doesn’t it? Check out the video after the jump and be sure to catch all new episodes of Chuck in January.
