Check out NBC's new Chuck poster:

As you can see, Chuck returns September 20.  It's got a 13 episode order with an option for an additional nine.  If the additional nine are declined, does that mean an end for the series or just that they are sticking to the original 13 episode season?  It's too early for that kind of talk, I suppose.


Post here if there's a Chuck Comic-Con panel and any news.

It probably depends both on whether the ratings for "Chuck" improve and whether the ratings for the new shows are sufficiently high to raise NBC's expectations for how a series should perform. "Chuck" has a small but stable audience, and the producers were willing to budget to accordingly. If NBC decides it can do better in the time slot, it'll probably be 13 and out. If things are still looking bleak for NBC come midseason, we'll probably see the pickup for the back nine. Either way, the fact that "Chuck" has four seasons is a little bit of a miracle that we should all be grateful for.

HUGE CASTING NEWS! BIG SPOILER AHEAD:


"Chuck" casts Chuck's missing mom!

"The search for Chuck’s mom has officially been terminated, and with good reason: Linda Hamilton has already landed the part!


"The erstwhile Sarah Connor will make her first appearance as Zachary Levi’s MIA spy mama Mary Bartowski in Chuck‘s fourth-season premiere on Sept. 20."

/img/vbsmilies/htf/cool.gif news indeed. Met her at last year's Toronto Fan Expo and suggested she would be a natural for the role.
 

Looks like she took my advice.  /img/vbsmilies/htf/smiley_wink.gif

Some of the early guest stars being announced are stellar again.  The casting staff from Chuck deserve serious recognition.

First season four promo video (WARNING: Reveals the actress playing Chuck's Mom!):





Also, Bonita Friedericy (who plays General Beckman) has been upgraded to series regular. Good news for me, since I love her.

If this is to be the last season of "Chuck", I'm glad they are going to put something good behind it.

That link is giving me a malformed URL error for some reason. I pasted the end part onto a normal YouTube link and got to the video ().

 

Regardless, your enthusiasm is infectious, Lou. Thanks for keeping us all updated.

OK let me see if I can amend my link shortcoming ways with this one. Posted Image

 

BE VERY AWARE - SPOILERIFIC Linkage here!  This is for the NBC media site which includes 4 clips from the premiere episode, interviews, and behind the scenes B roll footage.

 

Great stuff in there and my anticipation level for Season 4 has been cranked even higher!  Which I no longer thought possible! Posted Image
