If you’re a fan of the critically-acclaimed show Chuck, but don’t want to wait until March for its triumphant return, you may be in luck as NBC is eyeing to move up the premiere date of the series return. Since the start of the fall season, NBC’s numbers have been down across the board with new series not performing as expected and with the recent news of Southland being canceled before any new episodes aired, NBC needs help.

Last year, Chuck, with its small but loyal audience, almost wasn’t enough to keep the struggling show on the schedule. But after the “Save Chuck” campaign, NBC picked up the show for a third season with a 13-episode order. With that much enthusiasm behind a show, this is the shot in the arm that the struggling network needs as NBC is eyeing a late-October return of the show. No word yet of it would stay in its Monday at 9PM slot.

How great is that news? Well, it gets even better. If NBC does decide to move up the premiere date from March to October, it means that there is a very good chance of the networking ordering more shows for the only-13-episode season.

Well, fans, we wanted NBC to give Chuck a chance and it looks like the network is going to, in a big bad way. If there’s any possibility of Chuck receiving an additional episode order this season or perhaps another season, the fans have to come out and be counted?

Will you be there? I know I will.

Right now, Chuck will return in March, but we’ll keep you up to date when/if NBC officially announces any changes.

  1. Chuck is an awesome show I definitely hope it gets the Oct bump…..

    “Guys…. I know Kung Fu”
    Chuck’s final words at the end of season 2

  2. I know me and my friends will be watching all episodes!

  3. This is great news!! I’d love to have Chuck and Heroes back-to-back again!!!

  4. I don’t watch Chuck, so this isn’t really about the show, but I think you missed a good opportunity with the name of this article, should have read “NBC to Move Up ‘Chuck’” just so you can have “up chuck” in there, lol. Sorry for the off-topic blurp, I’ll leave now, haha.

  5. Chuck is a must have!

  6. Oh Chuck yeah! Bring on the Chuck! My wife and I both love this show.

  7. Holy crap! That’s amazing news! I really hope that they decide to move it up. Though the production of the show is set for the March release I’d assume which would make it hard to fit new episodes into the season. I mean you can’t really add things onto the end can you?

  8. PINEAPPLE!!!!
