Chuck Fans unite!  Chuck has been green-lit for Season 3!  NBC will be announcing their formal Fall Schedule tomorrow, May 19, 2009, but Variety.com reports that “Chuck” will be back next season with 13 episodes and a smaller budget.   According to Variety, the reason for the delay for Chuck’s renewal was solely based on cost-cutting issues.  On the one hand, I am glad that “Chuck” will be back but on the other hand…I am sad to hear that it will be back for a shortened season.  It kind of leads you to question if this will be Chuck’s last swan song, or will other shows follow the same lead in terms of cost cutting tactics.  Read the full Variety article here.  There is still hope though, according to TV by the numbers, NBC still has the option to pick up the back 9 episodes. 

All in all, I am glad that NBC recognizes that “Chuck” has a great fanbase and that the way they left things in Season 2 is not the way that Chuck fans want to see things end (or at least that’s how this Chuck fan feels :-)). For now…it is time to rejoice as “Chuck” lives on for another season! Hooray! Check NBC’s upcoming shows website for the official word tomorrow, as the final schedule will be posted then.

**UPDATE**

NBC announces the official press release for Chuck’s renewal. Read it here. As part of an innovative marketing campaign, “Chuck” is back with Subway as their major sponsor. “Chuck” is set to come back after the Winter Olympics assuming the “Heroes” time slot. Here is the full Fall line-up for NBC.

The Future of Chuck

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?
