To say it simply: Chuck will be back in the fall. NBC has renewed the series for 13 episodes, with a possibility of a back 9 (bringing it to a normal 22 episode season) if ratings do well. NBC has enough faith in the series to bring it back, as well as the network not having many other options. Series stars Zachary Levi as the title character, who is recruited by the CIA after he has secret information stored into his brain. Series also stars Yvonne Strahovski as his handler/girlfriend Agent Sarah Walker.
