NBC's 'Chuck' gets a Season 4 [updated]

chuck-season-4.jpg UPDATE 5/14 3 p.m. ET: NBC has now made "Chuck's" Season 4 pickup official.

"'Chuck' has proven its enduring appeal, and we love the new creative direction [creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak] have taken the show."

"Chuck" will see Season 4!

Zap2it recently reported that the chances for a renewal looked good, but now a fourth season is looking nearly 100%.

According to EW, the NBC comedy has been picked up for a 13-episode fourth season.

NBC has not officially confirmed the pick-up at time of writing.

A fourth season was never a sure thing, since despite rave reviews and heavy promotion from NBC, the show's ratings have not been top notch.

Last year fans launched a two-month "Save Chuck" campaign when NBC seemed iffy about a Season 3 pick-up, and they got their wish when the network renewed for 13 episodes (which was eventually extended to 19).
