Chuck to End After Fifth Season

Chuck to End After Its Next Season — Is It Too Soon?

Chuck fans breathed a collective sigh of relief when we heard the news that the show was getting renewed, but there's another side of the story: Chuck's upcoming 13-episode season will be its last. The spy comedy has been hanging on by a thread virtually since its inception, so the fact that it'll be back in the Fall is an impressive feat all on its own. Still, I have a feeling that die-hard fans won't be pleased with this news, as it means that we'll soon be saying goodbye to Chuck, Sarah, and the whole gang.

I've been a fan of Chuck from the first episode, but I actually think this is a great move for NBC. For the most part, the show has run its course, and now creators/writers Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak can wrap up all of their stories with a big red bow without worrying about whether or not the show will be left in the lurch yet again. Chuck has served up some of my favorite season finales over the years ("Guys, I know kung fu"!) and I'm looking forward to seeing it get the send-off it deserves.

What's your take on this news — do you think Chuck deserves more time?

I do not understand this whole giving up on TV shows crap that everyone on here seems to be Gung Ho for..... There were many shows that continued for 5-10+years and people loved every moment of it..... Are we 3 year olds now ??? Do we not have the ability to watch the same characters for more than three to four years. Shame on you all !!!...There are so many ways this show can go. It's a CIA spy show......have we lost the gift of imagination ?? you have established characters...go with it..don't kill it !!! Examples of shows that could and did keep going...... ....and some of these are Ca-RAP--CRAP CRAP!!! Guiding Light CBS 57 years June 30, 1952 to September 18, 2009 14,000+ episodes HOW ??? don't know....but they did it..... here's another loser.. As the (stomach)World Turns CBS 54 years April 2, 1956 to September 17, 2010 13,858 episodes I could keep going or you can look for yourself..... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_longest-running_U.S._primetime_television_series.......... LONG LIVE CHUCK AND SCREW YOU FAKE FANS !!!

I love the show and I hate that it is going to end but like everyone else has said, I'd rather the writers have a chance to wrap-up and loose story lines instead of a major cliffhanger ending.

I love Chuck, but I'm glad they got a final season to wrap everything up. Canceling a show in the middle of a storyline really sucks.

It's definitely time for Chuck to end. It's a good show, but it's had plenty of to tell its story, and now it's time for it to wrap it up.

I am so in favor of planned endings for shows. So hooray for 13 more episodes! That'll let me say a drama-free goodbye.

I'm a little conflicted. I love Chuck. I'd hate to see it go, but I actually think it may be a good idea. I think some shows are drawn out too long and then it's no longer good. I'd rather see Chuck end in a bang than on a sour note or even worse: canceled. At least this way fans will get closure.
