The first on-air promo for Season 4 of “Chuck” has hit the web, and there is much good contained in its 20 or so seconds.
Thrill! To Chuck (Zachary Levi) freeing Casey (Adam Baldwin) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) from a sticky situation! See! Chuck disguised as an old man! (OK, that’s from last season’s finale, but it’s still a great visual.) Lament! The lack of Morgan (Joshua Gomez) and Capt. Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) in the spot!
And, of course, there’s the money shot toward the end of the teaser: a glimpse of Linda Hamilton as Chuck’s mom, aka the reason Chuck has for getting back in the spy game following the end of last season. It’s tough to ignore a dying request from your father, after all.
Does the promo tell us anything we don’t already know about the new season? No — unless confirming that Linda Hamilton still looks like herself counts. But until Sept. 20 comes around, we’ll take whatever “Chuck” we can get. Here’s the teaser:
