That’s the good news. Here’s the bad news: The 13-episode pickup came after Warner Bros. agreed to make significant budget concessions, including scaling back the number of episodes several members of the show’s stellar supporting cast will appear in and, per one insider, possibly eliminating one actor altogether. The show is also expected to cut two of its staff writers.
But back to the good news: Chuck lives on! I was so glad to hear this. I really like this show and it amazes me that it is not more popular. Of course, it is up against some strong competition on monday nights.
