We're just thrilled that Chuck got renewed for a third season, even if it is only 13 episodes. However, plenty of bitter fans are angry NBC didn't give the show a full season order.
According to TV Guide, though, network entertainment president Ben Silverman said that, based on ratings, "we may extend it out and continue it through the summer."
In the meantime, until the show returns in the midseason, he added: "We're looking to ... keep [Chuck] incredibly viral and buzz-worthy until it returns, and then hopefully have it on our air for many years to come."
In other exciting news, TV Guide also talked to Scott Bakula, who said he's down to appear on more episode of Chuck.
