NBC Re-ups Chuck
NBC showed confidence in the sophomore series Chuck by picking up the back nine episodes of the season, giving it a full order in advance of the second-season premiere, Variety reported. The network was pleased with the first six episodes produced so far and wanted to keep the momentum going.
Executive producer Josh Schwartz called the pickup "unexpected."
"It's an incredible show of faith by NBC, and so amazingly nice to get based on the work alone," Schwartz told the trade paper.
Chuck launched last year but was cut short by the writers strike. Rather than bring it back in the spring, NBC opted to hold the show back and relaunch it this fall. It premieres on Monday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. ET/PT.

The date seems to be going really well.
Then again...maybe not!
Oh, yeah, we got trouble. Hey...isn't that Michael Clarke Duncan (as Colt)?
Oh -- Maj. John Casey (Adam Baldwin) seems to be alerted to the danger!
