Chuck To Get Full Season Order After All?
In the best way possible, NBC’s Chuck may be the televisual equivalent of a cockroach. For the second year running, it looks as if the spy comedy drama might be about to go from rumors of cancellation to getting an unexpected full season pick-up.
Entertainment Weekly’s Michael Ausiello dropped the bombshell quietly last Friday, quoting creator Josh Schwartz as saying “NBC is really happy with [the show] creatively… This is Chuck. We never say die.” It’s the right attitude to have – If the show does get an order for additional episodes this season, this will mark the second straight year it’s happened for the series that, every single year, is plagued by rumors of potential cancellation. It may not be breaking ratings records, but at this rate, Chuck might be more likely to make it to the 2011/2012 schedule than JJ Abrams’ supposed Chuckbuster (and ratings flop) Undercovers.
