NBC was expected to lay down verdict on 'Chuck' this Monday, May 4 but will not give out its decision until later in the middle of the month.
NBC has laid down the verdict to some of its shows including "Medium" but chosen to suspend judgment on "Chuck". While the former has been confirmed to return for another set of season, the latter is not going to find out for another week, whether to have a renewal or not.
A sixth season has been confirmed for "Medium" and the order is between 13 to 18 episodes range, according to THR. The decision was officially laid on Sunday, May 3 afternoon and it included also the announcement for the pick up of two young shows "Southland" and "Parks and Recreation". Meanwhile, talks were still ongoing for the renewal of half-hour show "My Name is Earl".
Bubble series "Chuck" was expected to be given an address on Monday, May 4 but apparently the network chooses to slam down the hammer only later. Additionally, Zachary Levi told E! Online, "I thought we were going to hear about it this Monday because NBC's announcing a bunch of its schedule, but I just got an email from (executive producer) Josh Schwartz, and he said stay positive, (but) we're not going to find out on Monday. It could be another week or two. They're making their final tallies and decisions."
Joining "Chuck" in the bubble is long-running series "Law & Order", which is vying to tie "Gunsmoke" to run for 20 years. NBC had promised to announce the full list of pick ups on May 19.
