**UPDATE: Watch the “Chuck” Comic-Con Trailer that preceded the panel discussion here.**
Here is the “Chuck” panel discussion that took place at Comic Con. The panel included co-creators of “Chuck” Chris Fedak and Josh Schwartz and almost all of the cast of “Chuck” including Zachary Levi (Chuck Bartowski), Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah Walker), Joshua Gomez (Morgan Grimes), and Adam Baldwin (John Casey).

What can we expect from Season 3 of Chuck? The “Chuck” panel recently dropped some hints at Comic-Con, which mildly sastifies some curiosity on what to expect for Season 3. **WARNING: LOOK AWAY IF YOU HAVEN’T SEEN THE SEASON 2 FINALE OF CHUCK!** At the end of the Season 2 finale, Chuck downloads the new intersect to himself and with the “new” upgrades to the intersect – Chuck unleashes some kung-fu skills and kicks some serious butt in order to defeat the bad guys. Zachary Levi (Chuck) hinted that Chuck’s powers are temporary and they come and go with his flashes.
On the “Chuck-Fu”: Levi says Chuck can’t know kung fu all the time, or there’d be nothing for Casey and Sarah to do. So there’s a glitch in the system. When he flashes, he gets the powers, but then they’ll fade. Awesome will start to submerge into the spy world as well, given that he’s the only other dude who knows Chuck’s secret. Schwartz talked about playing with the idea of Casey and Ellie getting together, what with Awesome and Ellie being a little on the rocks. And Sarah’s sister Corinna will be coming back to the show. And Morgan will try once again. And fail once again. Or not.
Why would Casey and Ellie get together? Perhaps it could be more of a camaraderie than a romantic relationship. Co-creator Josh Schwartz also mentioned in the same post that there is a possibility that “Chuck” may be back earlier than expected. I guess we shall see. For now, the website Chuckmeout.com was created in order to help “Chuck” fans survive until the show starts up again. “Chuck” is slated to come back in March 2010 (ugh…so long!).
Season 2 of Chuck has come to a close, and the fate of the show is still on the bubble. Today NBC announced their Fall 2009-2010 preview schedule, and Chuck is notably missing from the lineup, but the lineup is still not set in stone. There is still hope Chuck fans! NBC will reveal the full fall schedule on May 19, 2009. While the powers that be at NBC are still deciding over the fate of Chuck. I thought it would be fun to speculate what Season 3 would be like. What can the New Intersect do? Will Chuck go back to the Buy More? Will Chuck and Sarah get together? Will Morgan come back?
Jill is back! Jordana Brewster (The Fast and the Furious) makes another appearance in Chuck’s World as the infamous ex-girlfriend/Fulcrum spy. Chuck needs to save his Dad and he turns to Jill for help. Will Jill double cross Chuck again? Does “The Morgan” really kill?
