UPDATED: 'Chuck' Renewed for Next Season

UPDATED: ‘Chuck’ Renewed for Next Season

UPDATE: Now its official. Chuck will get 13 episodes next season and it will be the show’s last.

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?

     We love “Chuck”  and hope the fans can get them to have even more episodes.  I would love a Chuck movie on the big screen!  Can’t wait for Comic-Con this year!

    Chuck is by far my favorite television program ever. I think putting it against Dancing with the Stars is a mistake. I try telling people how wonderful it is but they’re all watching DWTS. Just because the ratings aren’t great doesn’t mean there aren’t people watching. I can’t take any more of this reality show crap. Please renew Chuck for many seasons to come.

    One more full season would be great. After that, I suppose it may be time to let this great series go into syndication. I can always watch the DVD series version once a year over a 3 month period for fond memories. Of course when Chuck goes, I’ll probably not tune into NBC again in my lifetime.
