With that, the show would be ready should NBC decide to air it sooner than its midseason 2010 schedule.
In the same tone to Chris Fedak's statement that "Chuck" may be released earlier than scheduled, Lester's depicter Vik Sahay confirmed that despite being put in midseason 2010, the cast and the crew will be back working as early as this August. "We will be ready to come back whenever we're asked to come back," Sahay said in an interview with TVGuide. "And that's good to know."
Not only that, Sahay also shared another good news when he said that the order NBC put may extend beyond 13 episodes if the third season continually shows a strong rating. "That's the hope," Sahay crossed his finger. "(NBC boss Ben Silverman) said he'll push us into the summer with a back nine (order), so we're planning on making the shows that good."
In the mean time, "Chuck" is still scheduled to enter every Mondays at 8/7c in March 2010 after the Winter Olympics. Fedak revealed a plan to do a webseries to keep fans craving for the geeky action.
At the end of the second season, Chuck accidentally downloaded a new skill into his brain. "I know kung fu," he said. About how it would translate on the third season, Sahay shared what he knows, saying "...(Chuck's new ability) is going to make things hilarious... and wild."
