Chuck makes its long-awaited return to TV tonight, and in the meantime, we're bringing you a special behind-the-scenes peek at the upcoming season. We recently did a little espionage of our own on the set of the spy comedy, and while we can't reveal all the secrets we learned just yet, check out our interview with Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez for a taste of what's to come. The dangerously funny duo dished to us on the fate of their onscreen romances, Chuck and Ellie's ongoing journey to find their mom, and Nicole Richie's ass-kicking return to the show. Be sure to watch Chuck tonight at 8 p.m. on NBC — and stay tuned as we unveil more secrets and new interviews from our visit!
Now that those pesky Olympics are finally out of the way, tonight kicks off the return of some of my favorite shows — and Chuck is right at the top of my list! The last we saw of Chuck and the gang, Chuck and Hannah were locking lips (much to poor Morgan's chagrin), while Sarah explored her feelings for Shaw. Zach Levi and Joshua Gomez hopped on a conference call with reporters the other day to chat about Chuck and Morgan's relationship and what's left for the rest of the season.
- Gomez on the evolution of Chuck and Morgan's relationship: I think that Morgan and Chuck have both obviously and in sort of parallel ways mirrored each other throughout these three seasons in their own different ways. But they both have matured, they both have become different people from where we started. I mean, you look back at that and you go wow, you know, I was eating garbage out of a refrigerator in the break room and now, you know, now I still do that but less. And as an assistant manager I do it. So, yeah, (intending) with Chuck, you know, I mean, he's sort of — you know, he's obviously come a long, long way. So, you know, and I think their relationship reflects that, you know, they're sort of different men now and — but that's also — that also saddens me, you know, I miss the old Chuck and Morgan sometimes.
- Levi on how Morgan's new role as assistant manager will affect Chuck You'll see how it, you know, progresses and affects both Morgan's character and my character, you know, and my ability to sneak out the way that I always do. I'm surprised it's taken this long to be honest. Like how do I keep leaving the Buy More and never come back with really any results? Maybe like a black eye. I don't think I've sold or fixed anything in three years.

How many kinds of awesome (and Awesome) can you cram into one episode of Chuck? I think we found out this week, as "Chuck vs. the Colonel" finds Chuck running off with Sarah, Casey assigned to find them, Fulcrum hot on their tail, and some serious drama going down at the Buy More. The episode left me wondering: how could the finale — supposedly so good that we'll want to burn our living rooms if the show doesn't get renewed — possibly top this? To chat about it, just read more
Oh man — and we thought Bryce Larkin was competition. On this week's episode of Chuck, we meet Cole, an undercover MI-6 agent who shows up right when Chuck is having some serious doubts about continuing his cover relationship with Sarah. Meanwhile, Big Mike and Morgan's mom are having no doubts whatsoever about the state of their new relationship, which drives Morgan to take shelter in the Bartowski house. This episode definitely sets some interesting things up for the rest of the season, so to chat about it, just read more
Ever since Chuck first started, I've been wondering what would happen if Morgan joined Chuck on a mission. Well, this week, it sort of happened. Morgan had a spy caper of his own to carry out, tracking Anna (Anna!!) with her new boyfriend — who then ended up playing a part in Chuck, Sarah, and Casey's real mission. What's a best friend to do? Meanwhile, we meet the most awesome wedding band of all time: Jeffster! To chat about it, just read more
On this week's post-Valentine's Day episode of Chuck, faux romance is in the air when Chuck and Sarah are asked to pose as a married couple and move to the suburbs to suss out which neighbor might be a sinister Fulcrum agent. But what will living in such close quarters do to the real-life dynamic between Chuck and Sarah? Meanwhile, Emmett dons the ugliest pompadour of all time, and Big Mike decides to get his groove on through online dating. Ready to chat about it? Just read more
I hope you didn't pitch your 3-D glasses after the big Monsters vs. Aliens ad during yesterday's Super Bowl, because you'll need them to tune into tonight's special episode of Chuck. Well, you won't need them, per se; the episode will still make sense in just the regular ol' dimensions. But if you want to see knives spinning out of your TV — and the most awesome shot of Big Mike eating a donut ever — you'll want to don the geeky specs like Zachary Levi and Joshua Gomez do in this cute video to watch along.
Tonight's episode is the first since December, and in addition to special effects, it's also full of guest stars: Lost's Dominic Mongahan plays a rock star who stops by the Buy More for a promotional visit, while former Pittsburgh Steelers star Jerome Bettis plays a thuggish new Buy More employee. Chuck's used its guest stars better than any show I can think of (well, besides maybe 30 Rock), so I'm expecting these folks to fold in seamlessly to the show's wacky world.
As I heard from Josh Schwartz a while back, there's some big stuff coming up for Chuck in the second half of its second season. The show isn't a lock for renewal — especially not with Jay Leno moving to primetime — so I'm hoping this special episode gives the show the ratings boost it deserves. To check out a preview, just read more
Ever since we got our first glimpse of young Sarah Walker (or, I guess, then young Jenny Burton) earlier in this season of Chuck, I've been curious to know more about what it was like to grow up in the shadow of a con man. Well, this episode takes care of that, as Sarah's dad shows up to run a heist and wreak havoc, just like the old days. Chuck gets thrust into the middle of it, of course, as Jack's visit brings some of his own daddy issues to the surface. Ready to chat about it? Just read more
Wow, this week's episode of Chuck was one geek-iriffic hour. At one point, I asked my boyfriend, "Is Missile Command a real game?" He responded by burying his head in his hands (and bringing up a Wikipedia entry about kill screens). So maybe this one tested the outer limits of my geek cred; I think it's a tribute to Chuck that it didn't matter one bit. To talk about it, just read more
