As NBC said farewell to “Heroes” and “Law and Order” today, the Peacock network has signed off for a fourth season of “Chuck.”
EW’s Michael Ausiello says the show has been given a 13-episode pick-up for season four.
NBC has not officially confirmed the news yet, but is expected to Sunday when they announce their full 2010-11 schedule. No word yet on when “Chuck” might return to the line-up.
Also there’s little word yet on if the show might get a longer pick-up should ratings warrant it. As you may recall, season three was given a 13 episode renewal last year only to see it extended when NBC needed the series to run longer.
But the good news, for now, is “Chuck” is back!
