The folks at NBC were kind enough to put the Chuck panel up online. This is the whole panel minus any clips they showed (with a few annoying but understandable commercials mixed in). Enjoy it… (expect spoilers)
(Now, I’m going to talk about spoilers) I love the idea of the CIA taking over the Buy More and adding other agents into the mix. It should be funny to see how Jeffster, Big Mike, and the others react to this. Linda Hamilton as Chuck’s mom is completely basass, I just hope she is good and not evil. I hope we can see some of what happened to Chuck’s parents in the past.
Other casting news; Olivia Munn and the “Old Spice” guy Isaiah Mustafa will be guest starring as CIA agents, and villains Stone Cold Steve Austin and Nicole Richie will be returning. With Richie returning, hopefully that means we’ll learn more about Sarah’s mysterious past. I also love the addition of Mekenna Melvin as Casey’s daughter Alex. I really hope that we’ll see more of her in the upcoming season.
Are you excited about the new season of Chuck? Discuss it below! NBC’s Comic Con panels for The Event, The Cape, and Community are also online, you can check them out here.
The CIA-run Buy More will be interesting.
I can still live without LH as Mom.
And if I had to hear one more mention of Whedon’s horsestuff series, I was going to hurl. :O
How long until the new season? Can’t wait!!
Holy cow! Lou Ferrigno has now been cast in a guest spot!
Doug, the new season starts on September 20. I can’t wait also!
Dewd, I love the Linda Hamilton casting. What more badass mother on the run could they have chosen? I think she’ll be a very different character than Chuck’s pop, who will be missed 🙁
