Josh Gomez and Zachary Levi
No amount of five-dollar footlongs will extend Chuck beyond its final, 13-episode season this fall. But series co-creator Chris Fedak tells TVGuide.com that knowing this is the end gives them the opportunity to wrap up its stories in a satisfying way for their loyal, sandwich-filled fans.
At the end of Season 4, we saw Chuck (Zachary Levi) and Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski) finally tie the knot, purchase the Buy More and start their own freelance spy agency. Meanwhile, pal Morgan (Joshua Gomez) got a surprise when he slid on some shades meant for Chuck and accidentally uploaded the Intersect. "You have the skeleton of a new show," Fedak says. So, what's next? Will Chuck and Co. get a happy ending? Read on:
On a sunny day at the North Hollywood Medical Center, Chuck is shooting its Season 4 finale (airing Monday at 8/7c on NBC), in which spy and bride-to-be Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) is hospitalized — near death — after an attack by Vivian Volkoff (Lauren Cohan). Despite the subject matter, the mood on the set is anything but grim.
"It's a crazy roller coaster of love, and I'm gonna stand on that," star Zachary Levi tells reporters, describing the show's genre-spanning style. He might as well be referring to the cast and crew's camaraderie though.

Bride or groom's side? If you're attending the big Chuck wedding, perhaps the safest answer is "neither."
Any spy knows that their loved ones could be used against them, and on Monday's episode "Chuck vs. the Last Details" (8/7c, NBC), Chuck (Zachary Levi) learns that new nemesis Vivian Volkoff (Lauren Cohan) has captured his mother, Mary Bartowski (Linda Hamilton) while she was on a mission.

Before Chuck and Sarah can say "I do," it's time for one last hurrah with respective bachelor and bachelorette parties on Monday's Chuck (8/7c on NBC). As the future sister-in-law, Ellie (Sarah Lancaster) will plan a luncheon-turned-stripfest for Sarah (Yvonne Strahovski), while Captain Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) will head up less raunchy festivities for Chuck (Zachary Levi).
Zachary Levi and Yvonne Strahovski
That Chuck and Sarah's wedding won't go off without a hitch should be of no surprise to fans of the NBC spy series Chuck, but expect some high-jinks from all the events leading up to the big day as well.
"We have a lot of fun at the bachelorette party," says Yvonne Strahovski, somewhat sarcastically. "Sarah has no friends. Her bridesmaids are off somewhere on a mission. They're unavailable. So Ellie organizes a lovely situation." By 'situation' she means a hot performance from a Thunder From Down Under-like group with some local flavor.

Anne Hathaway and James Franco
Anne Hathaway and James Franco's first foray into hosting the Oscars was a little rocky, but there were still plenty of top moments to be had from the ceremony:
Most Awkward Host Introduction: Ouch. Anne Hathaway and James Franco's requisite montage of fake clips from the Best-Picture nominees fell flat, but at least we got a small giggle from seeing Franco in a white, full-body leotard for their Black Swan spoof. Can we get him and Justin Timberlake doing "Single Ladies"?
Fear not, Chuck fans: Yvonne Strahovski doesn't believe in the Moonlighting curse.
Even though Strahovski's Sarah recently got engaged to Chuck (Zachary Levi), the actress believes NBC's spy drama won't suffer the same fate as Moonlighting, the '80s sitcom that famously fell apart when Bruce Willis and Cybil Shepherd's main characters finally hooked up.
