'Chuck' Officially Renewed for Season 3


'Chuck' Officially Renewed for Season 3


There will be a third season of 'Chuck' although some changes are required to bring back the mild-rating show.

The wait is over, "Chuck" is officially renewed. A day before the formal presentation regarding the Fall schedule, NBC has announced that there will be a third season of the action comedy starring Zachary Levi. The network is expected to make the official announcement on Tuesday, May 19.

However, due to the mediocre rating that it received during the second season, NBC only orders 13 episodes to cut some budget. Also, two staff writers reportedly will be let go and some supporting cast will get reduced time of appearance during the season. Worse, according to EW, a regular actor will be dismissed permanently.

"Chuck" literally has been saved by its fans who, upon hearing that it may get canceled, launched a petition as well as the campaign "Save Chuck" with the help of Subway. A fansite Zachary-Levi.com encouraged viewers to watch the April 27 finale live and buy the sponsoring sandwiches on the day.

Meanwhile, creator Josh Schwartz has accumulated thought of the third season long before the season gets a green light. "...Chuck and Sarah's relationship will be one of the major driving stories of next season - should we have one," he said, adding that they were still accumulating thoughts for new characters but "know how next season would end."

    Just finished watching series 2 so I hope series 3 runs the full 22 and goes on for a few years yet. There were only 2 other US series I just would "NEVER" have missed, Miami Vice and Battlestar Gallactica (new series) Chuck is right there with both of them. Chuck, Sarah and Casey are 3 individuals who gell so well. Please don't let it end on a 3rd series! UK watcher.

    Can't believe the ratings are so poor! It's the best show on TV ever! What are the people thinking and how can they not see it for the great show it is?? Hope NBC comes to their senses. Not a big fan of Kristin Kreuk so a bit disappointed that she's going to make an appearance. But let's hope the show lives on for many more seasons!

    Let me add my 4 cents for my hubby and myself! Chuck's the only thing we love on TV It's hard to find something to watch and Chuck is clean that's probably why so few of us like it but there is a group of us that prefer this kind of entertainment and KUDOS to whoever had the forsight to see that WE NEED CHUCK! THANKS for bringing it back but could you hurry?

    Anna Woo is coming back for the people who said she isn't.. So hopefully Morgan won't be going. However if they lose Adam Baldwin(Casey) I don't think i'll be watching anymore. He makes the show for me.

    It's really frustrating that a good show like Chuck takes a back seat to such lame programming that has to be avoided it's so bad. Get wise NBC, put your money on Chuck. That's were mine is going.

    Chuck is amazing. Oh my gwash it is the best show ever. we just finished season 2 here in New Zealand and we are going to have to wait forever for season 3. atleast it is coming back but 13 episodes isn't very much. Although the producers said if it gets good enough ratings in America they might extend the season. Peace fellow Chuck lovers.

    how can they afford to employ the guy from family vacation on the final 3 episodes and complain about budget cuts, keep the cast and kill anna emmette but keep big mike for such moments like when he takes out the falvrum agent on the episode when chuck arrests jill. CHUCK FOREVER

    This is the greatest show ever!! I cant believe they are only going to produce 13 episodes and one of the cast is going. Hope its not Sarah I just love her. I Also think Casey, Lester and Jeff are incredible. And obviously the greatest numbnuts spy of all times Chuck! And now he knows Kung Fu!! Cant w8 to see him in action again. Greetings from Uruguay this is really good tv!

    I dont think they will let go of Jeff or Leicster (JEFFSTER) it might be Big mike but definately not Morgan. I also doubt it would be Casey or Elle & Awesome. If you count Bryce 1 down :-) Even though i did think he was one of the best characters :-( Its kinda typical of NBC to try to ruin a good thing. I personally think Chuck is the only thing i am able to watch on NBC, and i also think it is better than Heroes which also could be good but it just to slow.
