Chuck Renewed for 13-Episode Third Season


NBC and Warner Bros. TV have signed a 13-episode third-season renewal deal on Sunday for the action-comedy “Chuck.”

“Chuck” will return next season with a smaller production budget. The renewal haggling between NBC and Warner Bros. TV over the past few weeks has centered entirely on cost-cutting issues, reports Variety.

“Chuck” wstars Zachary Levi as a regular-Joe computer geek who winds up with CIA secrets implanted in his head.

Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak co-created “Chuck” and executive produce along with McG and Scott Rosenbaum.
