NBC Gives ‘Chuck’ Vote of Confidence
Before the second season of Chuck could debut on September 29, NBC today gave the series an order for the “back 9,” meaning a full order of 22 episodes has been given to the sophomore series.
Producer Josh Schwartz told Kristin Dos Santos at E!online, "We are thrilled and totally surprised by the pickup. We’ve had a great partnership with NBC from day one and to have them show this kind of confidence is really inspiring. I’m also really excited for Chris Fedak who deserves so much credit for the quality of the show.
"In terms of the rest of the season, we had big plans for the season finale last year that were cut short by the strike. To know we can go forward this year is really exciting.
"You will see more romance from some unexpected pairings…Couples you would never imagine. And yes, there will be a wedding coming, and it will be awesome."
Chuck Season One will be released on DVD from Warner Home Video on September 16 while the WildStorm original miniseries based on the series continues with the third issue now in print.
