Scott Bakula

After eight years, Scott Bakula was ready to kiss the ladies of Desperate Housewives goodbye — and with them, any dreams he had of guest-starring on the show. But he made it to Wisteria Lane in the nick of time.

"[Series creator] Marc Cherry and I had been bumping into each other. He kept saying, 'I want to have you on the show,' and I kept telling him, 'I love the show. I'd love to be on it,'" Bakula tells TVGuide.com. "I thought that the ship had sailed on this one."

Chuck Creators on How the Tearful Finale Finished Their Five-Year Plan

Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski

Chuck's five-year plan has reached its end.

On Friday, series creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak saw the end of their beloved spy comedy that inspired nerd culture and Subway sandwich diets. True to form, they still kept up with the fans who made the continuation of the series possible.

Dastardly guest stars!Perilous missions! Relive five seasons of Chuck through photos

"Someone just wrote the nicest thing on Twitter," Schwartz told TVGuide.com Friday. "Someone quoted the pilot. 'Working on a five year plan.

On the Set Farewell to Chuck Part 3: Cast Tears and Favorite Moments

Chuck, Ryan McPartlin and Sarah Lancaster

Zachary Levi doesn't have any regrets that Chuck is ending with only a 13-episode fifth season.

"I don't feel like we were cut short, as difficult as it is to shut this last chapter on this journey," he told reporters at a December set visit for Chuck's two-hour series finale (Friday, 8/7c, NBC). "I think five seasons is actually a really good amount of time. ... For something like this, which is definitely story arcs and serial, how many bad guys and missions can you go on before you feel like you're repeating the same thing? So I feel like we've gotten a really perfect amount of time together and it's been special from Day One."

A Chuck Christmas: The Return of Daniel Shaw, the "Muahaha" Bad Guy

Brandon Routh, Chuck

Have Chuck and Sarah been naughty this year? On Friday's Chuck (8/7c, NBC), it looks like Santa is bringing them something far worse than a lump of coal: their old nemesis Daniel Shaw!

"We wanted to do a Christmas story, and Christmas is such a holiday that's haunted, like in the Charles Dickens tradition," Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak tells reporters during a December set visit. "We thought, 'Let's bring a monster from our past.' At the end of Season 3, Brandon [Routh] was such a good 'muahaha' bad guy. I was like, I've got to bring back the 'muahaha.'"

Chuck: Hannah, Browncoats and 10 More Things We Want in the Final Season

Zachary Levi, Yvonne Strahovski

Before we eat that last footlong and pour a 40-ounce soft drink out on the curb, there are 13 more episodes of Chuck left in its fifth and final season, kicking off Friday (8/7c on NBC).

Much has happened to our titular Nerd Herder-turned-spy and his friends, family and fellow agents in the past four seasons. And for the most part, we're fairly satisfied. We've seen Chuck (Zachary Levi) come into his own as a spy and as a man by finally marrying Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski). We've met his butt-kicking parents (Linda Hamilton, Scott Bakula), saw Ellie and Awesome (Sarah Lancaster, Ryan McPartlin) have a baby and even witnessed Morgan (Josh Gomez) find romance.
