No, the show’s tentative March premiere hasn’t been moved up. Not yet anyway. But sources confirm to me exclusively that NBC will begin streaming old episodes of Chuck on NBC.com this Monday. The move will give new and lapsed viewers a chance to play catch-up prior to the launch of the show’s third season. Episodes being streamed include the Chuck pilot and the entire second season (rolled out five episodes at a time).
And wait, there’s more… NBC.com will also stream the entire first season of Southland beginning Oct. 9, two weeks before the drama’s Oct. 23 second-season premiere.
Bottom line: Watching two of TV’s best series just got a whole lot easier!
