NBC Officially Confirms 'Chuck' To Return In January

NBC has finally confirmed that 'Chuck' will be returning in January -- two months earlier than originally announced.

But that's not all, the comedy will debut with back to back episodes on Sunday, January 10 from 9-11 PM, then air a third episode in its regular timeslot of Mondays at 8 PM the following night.

'Chuck' was initially given a thirteen episode renewal for season three, but that was increased to nineteen at the end of October. That's when we first speculated that the network may be plotting an earlier than expected return.

Co-creator Chris Fedak tells the 'Star-Ledger' that he can't wait for season three to hit the air: "I am glad to be coming back sooner than March. It's kind of strange to be making a television show and not having anybody watching it. We're doing lots of crazy stuff."

As for what viewers can expect with the additional episodes, Fedak says: "When we got the order for six more episodes, we restructured the story somewhat, but we're still operating along the lines that the six additional episodes will be 'Chuck' season 3.2. We're not going to pad the original story out. We're going to tell more story."

"We're telling a lot of story this season. Essentially, it's our ability to tell more story. But it'll still feel like one season."

Angie Harmon, Kristin Kreuk, Brandon Routh, Mini Anden, Steve Austin and Robert Patrick are all slated to make guest appearances this season.
