The fifth season of Chuck began production this week, after Comic Con, so the cast didn’t have much by way of spoilers to share. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t any scoop to be had, though. We’ve got goodies from the panel, the press room, and parties to share with you as we begin to gear up for the new season!
Warning! Spoilers Ahead!
- Mark Hamill to Guest Star – The announcement brought loud cheers from fans in Ballroom 20 and lots of happy Tweets from fans back home. Hamill will guest in the season 5 premiere, “Chuck vs. the Zoom”, as a villain with a French accent.
- Team Bartowski Meets Team Verbanski – Now that Chuck and Sarah are the mega rich owners of their own private espionage firm, and the Buy More, they’re about to learn that privatization = competition. Enter Gertrude Verbanski, owner of a rival espionage firm who goes head to head with the Bartowskis on a few missions. Fedak has someone in mind who he’d like to cast, but refused to name names.
- Casey Meets His Match – And her name is…Gertrude. Could it be that Casey rides off into the sunset with Ms. Verbanski? Sounds like it from the tidbits Adam and Fedak dropped, although neither went so far as to say that a Casey/Verbanski wedding is in the offing. Whatever the outcome, we have a feeling this storyline is going to be hot, hot, hot!
- An Awesome Date Night – Fedak revealed to ChuckTV.net that the writers are currently working on a Date Night episode featuring Awesome and Ellie. Did anyone else see the movie starring Tina Fey and Steve Carrell? Yeah, that kind of date night.
- The Mystery of Sarah’s Mom – Fedak also revealed that we were supposed to have met Sarah’s mother in season 4, but they ran out of time to service that story. The clues dropped in season 4 were leading up to her return, which Fedak is trying to make room for in season 5. We assured him that meeting Sarah’s mother before the series ends was vital. Here’s hoping our vote counts!
