I don’t know if I read it somewhere or dreamed it up, but I thought Chuck was scheduled to pick back up in March. Not so – season 3 will premiere with a 2-hour episode on Sunday, January 10th, followed by a normal Monday night hour-long episode the next night. The Chicago Tribune post linked above includes a decent preview clip, along with some encouraging quotes from what sounds like a focused and excited executive producer.
Perfect timing after the conclusion of Dollhouse! The occasionally annoying but far more often enjoyable second season of Chuck will be out on DVD January 5th. I’m excited for the new season, as the end of season two opened the door for a new and improved lead character, with plenty of fresh story possibilities as a result!
