It’s a familiar story for fans of NBC’s Chuck. Once again, the show is on the bubble and could easily be cancelled or renewed. If the series was on one of the other major networks it surely would have been cancelled years ago but, because the rest of NBC’s shows do so poorly, Chuck has squeeked by.
So far this season, Chuck has been averaging a 1.9 in the 18-49 demographic and 5.51 million viewers. That’s pretty terrible but it’s as good or better than Perfect Couples, The Cape, and Harry’s Law. Considering that a fifth season would help Chuck in syndication, it seems likely that Warner Bros. will make a good deal with NBC to bring it back one more time.
E! Online recently spoke to series stars Adam Baldwin and Yvonne Strahovski and they’re pretty optimistic about the show’s future.
Strahovski noted, “I think [the chances] are pretty good… I will be surprised if we don’t get a season five.” Meanwhile, Baldwin said, “I feel cautiously optimistic. Until you hear the go sign, I just remain cautiously optimistic.”
