That’s right, both Chuck and V will be getting thirteen new episodes next season which will actually be season four for Chuck and season two for V. As a big fan of both shows I, for one, am thrilled with the news. I’ve been with Chuck since the beginning and was worried about the perpetual “on the bubble” show most of this season, just like last season when renewal was in question right up to the end.
That was the case with V as well, which took a very long hiatus after a short run and then came back to finish its season, which concludes next week. Fortunately, after a somewhat slow start, ratings for V have improved significantly, especially last week’s episode, while those for Chuck have remained steady but have not been spectacular.
Fortunately, Chuck has seemingly done well enough to get another go and now we know we get to enjoy both shows again next season. Great news indeed. Sadly, things are not so good for another freshmen show Flash Forward, which has seen its ratings steadily decline and has gone through a host of creative changes. The network has decided to pull the plug and it will not be coming back next year.
