AceShowbiz - There's a good end coming out of "Southland" cancellation after all. Since the show will be out of the schedule on Fridays, there is a chance that another show will be bumped to complete NBC's line-up this season. One show which EW mentioned is the fan favorite "Chuck".
The comedy starring Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski in fact had gone into production in August although NBC put it for March 2010 premiere. "We will be ready to come back whenever we're asked to come back," actor Vik Sahay said in June. At least four episodes have been completed and NBC insiders who have seen them said that this is the best season yet.
However, whether or not "Chuck" will come back to its Monday slot, it is yet to be found out. Nevertheless, EW said that should it perform well then NBC may increase the initial 13 episodes order.
After nearly canceled this midseason, there have been clearly some efforts from the team of "Chuck" to make the show worth watching. They have tapped two guest stars to appear in the third season, namely Brandon Routh and Kristin Kreuk. The former will be a new spy specializing in The Ring while the latter will be a new love interest for Chuck named Hannah.
Meanwhile, "Southland" which has not even aired a single episode of its second season, reportedly is being pitched to TNT.
