Though the critics have loved it, the ratings haven’t been great and so NBC’s “Chuck” has always seemed to have several lives as every year it has come close to cancellation and yet always manages to scrape through.
The story this year, despite the show only being halfway through the fourth season, looks different. Chatting with Give Me My Remote, “Chuck” co-creator Chris Fedak says “we’re excited to consider the idea of actually doing a fifth season. That’s big news. That’s exciting to us. And I feel like the new NBC owners don’t want to have to be the ones to explain to the “Chuck” fans why they canceled their favorite show.”
The talk comes on top of the spy-dramedy having received larger than expected order of 11 more episodes which brings this fourth season to a total of 24 episodes – the longest season yet of the show.
