NBC will debut a new season of 'Chuck' and newbie 'Grimm' on October 28 as part of two nights of Halloween-themed programming.
"Chuck" fans have to wait a little longer for the premiere of the fifth and final season. NBC announces that it pushes back the premiere dates of the action comedy as well as new series "Grimm" to Friday, October 28, a week later than the original schedule, as part two nights of Halloween-themed programming.
"Chuck" and "Grimm" are going to fill the second night slot with the former kicking it off at 8/7c and the latter debuting at 9/8c. On the first night, October 27, comedies "Community", "Parks and Recreation", "The Office" and rookie "Whitney" will air special Halloween episodes.
In anticipation of the premiere of "Chuck" final season, the official synopsis of the first episode has been released. It says, "As Chuck begins life as a spy-for-hire, he must adjust to his new business, new threats, and a new intersect - his best friend Morgan Grimes. Without the Intersect in his head or the support of the CIA, the world of espionage is a much more dangerous place for Chuck Bartowski and his team of freelance spies."
"To start, Carmichael Industries takes on a slick, rich thief named Jean Claude (guest star Mark Hamill), and a conniving investor, Roger Bale (guest star Craig Kilborn), who has stolen money from some of the world's most dangerous people. Meanwhile, Morgan helps Chuck with a special surprise for Sarah. Back in the Buy More, Jeff and Lester have taken things to another level with their latest scheme. Sarah Lancaster and Adam Baldwin also star."
