Chuck: NBC Orders Additional Episodes for Season Three

Chuck TV showWhile some NBC viewers may still be reeling from the news that Trauma has been cancelled, there’s good news for another Monday night show, Chuck.

Chuck, which stars Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski, Joshua Gomez, Adam Baldwin, Sarah Lancaster, and Ryan McPartlin, was barely renewed last season because of soft ratings. But, in part because of a passionate fan campaign, NBC decided to bring it back. The fan victory was bittersweet though because the network said that they would bring it back for 13 episodes and wouldn’t start airing them for almost a year.

At the time, NBC had great confidence in their 2009-10 schedule. Now that the new shows have debuted and the network is in worse shape than ever, the execs are thinking more kindly about Chuck.

With NBC’s recent cancellation of Southland and now Trauma, the network is in need of some additional programming. As a result, they’ve upped their Chuck episode order by six, bring the season three total to 19.

NBC hasn’t officially announced Chuck’s return date but it’s expected that the network will bring the show back in January and then take a break for the Olympic games coverage.

What do you think? Do you think it’s better for Chuck to return in January or wait until March so the season can run uninterrupted?

I also want Chuck back. It’s young, fresh, funny!

NBC has little going for it – with the failures of Leno and Late Shuw

Awesome! I love this show. Bring it back in January. I’ve re-watched the DVDs from season 1 about ten times. I think it’s time for some new material!

We really look forward to watching Chuck. Its cute, light, funny. We like the whole cast-it works. We are so looking forward to more episodes. To tell you the truth, there isn’t much on TV any more that is worth watching-Chuck is well worth bringing back.
Please don’t let us down.

The sooner the better! I knew Southland wouldn’t make it and, while I thought the Trauma pilot was good, it hasn’t held up. There’s room for Chuck now. Order the whole freakin season and let’s get it back on the air before Christmas!

Go Chuck!!!

I absolutely love Chuck, I feel that is unfortunately underrated though. It is written so well and it is so funny that I don’t understand how the ratings could have been *soft*. Loyally I have been watching since the pilot and I will watch until the end. And if it airs in January than I don’t care, I’m happy either way I wished it began earlier though. NBC need to step it up, big time though.
