NBC Renews Chuck for 13 Episodes

Chuck's Back! NBC Orders 13 More Episodes

It's a big day for Chuck fans: As various sources are reporting (and Warner Bros. itself is confirming), NBC's lovable spy show will be back for a third season!

It's the latest in a weekend of crazy bubble show renewals that also include Dollhouse, Castle, and Scrubs, among others. And it's just the start for the madness to come during network Upfront week.

Now, there's a catch to this good news for Chuck: NBC only ordered 13 episodes (down from the normal 22 or so), and Warner Bros. will have to cut the show's budget pretty significantly — which means the show will lose some writers, some regular roles may become recurring guest stars, and we'll probably see fewer cast members in each episode. That's a bummer, but it's probably to be expected in this economy. And besides, if Chuck can blow us away each week on a tighter budget, maybe it'll be around for seasons to come.

Bottom line: I couldn't be more excited to get to see Chuck's new kung fu skills (and who knows what else!) on my TV this year. The show's time slot is still up in the air, but we should know more when NBC announces its full schedule on Tuesday. For now, let's get a hooray for the Nerd Herd down here in the comments.
