'Chuck' Renewed: NBC Orders New Season Of Cult Show, Reports Say

"Chuck," the NBC spy dramedy with the devoted fan base and the struggling ratings, has been picked up for a shortened fifth season, according to multiple outlets. NBC is set to order a 13-episode season for the show. It marks at least the third time that "Chuck" has avoided the NBC ax.

The move comes during the busy "upfront" season, where networks reveal their fall schedule.
