Chuck star Zachary Levi reveals to E! exclusively that NBC will not renew or cancel beloved spy dramedy Chuck for at least another week. Cast and crew had originally expected to hear before Monday's planned NBC "infront" presentation to advertisers.
When asked last night at an Eva Longoria Parker-hosted charity event benefiting Children's Hospital Los Angeles about prospects for a third season of Chuck, Levi said, "I thought we were going to hear about it this Monday because NBC's announcing a bunch of its schedule, but I just got an email from [Chuck executive producer] Josh Schwartz, and he said stay positive, [but] we're not going to find out on Monday. It could be another week or two. They're making their final tallies and decisions."
Chuck was the runner-up in E!'s 2009 Save One Show campaign and has been the focus of a vast Internet-based #savechuck campaign that has included Nerds candy mails-ins and a Subway "buy-in" demonstration.
