It’s Official: NBC Renews Chuck for Season 5

14/05/2011 09:59

 Rejoice, Chucksters! NBC officially announced that they’ve renewed Chuck for a fifth season!

Wednesday afternoon that NBC and Warner Bros. were nearing a deal for renewal, and now NBC has made it official. The initial order is for 13 episodes with an option for more, just like the previous four years. No word yet if Chuck will stay on the schedule Mondays at 8/7c or move elsewhere. Expect to find out when NBC unveils their new primetime schedule to reporters on Sunday and advertisers on Monday.

Josh Schwartz Tweeted a math question as his form of confirmation: “what’s the square root of 25?”

He then added: “The passion of the CHUCK fans has been heard again… We are all truly lucky to have the greatest fan base on tv. Thank you.”

(Thanks to Chad for our beautiful new banner.)

Updated 12:22PM: Natalie Abrams from TV Guide and Stuart Levine from Variety are reporting that season 5 will definitely be Chuck‘s final season, as many of us expected. (Twitter keeps breaking, so can’t link.) The pro here is that NBC has given the writers the chance to finish up the show on their terms instead of this constant suspense of whether the last episode of the season is really the last episode of the series.
