After last year’s “Save Chuck” campaign, it seems as if Chuck is riding high. With a 19-episode commitment (up’d from the original order commitment of 13) and a January 10 premiere date (up’d from its original March premiere), the only thing missing was a preview of the new season. That’s right, I said “was.”
With January right around the corner, NBC has already begun the Chuck promotion machine (maybe FOX can learn a thing or two) with a four minute look the upcoming third season and the only thing I can say to that is; “Yes!” and “Thank You!.”
Now, before we get to the clip, let’s talk about what to expect from the new season.
- Anna Wu (Julia Ling) is officially gone in Season 3
- In the season premiere, Chuck and Sarah will be in a three month spy training program while Chuck’s sister believes they’re vacationing in Europe.
- Zachary Levi’s real-life “crazy beard” has been worked into the season premiere
- Now that Chuck has upgraded the Intercept, he will now be required to go on solo missions.
- Chuck will be needing the help of a certain Captain Awesome in an upcoming mission.
- Emmett Milbarge’s (Tony Hale) reign on the Buy More will continue as the store takes on a more dictator-esque atmosphere.
Alright, enough with the season 3 information. I know how touchy some people can be about spoilers and after seeing how vocal Chuck viewers are, I don’t want to be on their bad side. That being said, let’s get on to the preview and watch how Chuck harnesses the powers of the Intersect 2.0 with a little Latin flavor.
How awesome is that? Chuck will now be able to swoon Sarah with his newly learned guitar skills. It’s so nice just to see the cast back together again. They could have just showed a four minute clip of the cast sitting on the set and I’d be happy because it just means that it’s real.
After all the work, all the fighting, all the Subway sub’s purchased...
It’s actually happening.
What do you think of the four minute preview and what’s to come for our friend Chuck? Any chance that you won’t be turning in?
Catch the two-hour season premiere of Chuck on Sunday, January 10 at 8PM on NBC.
