NEW YORK — Blast had an opportunity to chat with “Chuck” creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak and star Yvonne Strahovski at New York Comic Con earlier this month.
Schwartz and Fedak announced some upcoming guest stars to the show, namely Chevy Chase and Scott Bakula, both of whom will remain through the season finale. They also mentioned a potential return of the Awesomes and that Jeff’s sister will be introduced to the show.‚
Schwartz said there was always a possibility for more “The OC” alums to be included in the show in addition to last season’s Rachel Bilson and Melinda Clarke.‚
They also discussed the season finale, which Schwartz said was currently being written would a “game changer” and send the show in an entirely new direction. He emphasized the finale would not be a series finale.‚
“It’s pretty mind-blowing,” Schwartz said about the finale. “It’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s something we’ve been talking about for two years now and it’s going to launch the show in a really exciting, pretty different direction actually.‚
Strahovski talked a bit about her makeover for “Chuck Versus the Cougars” where she plays a nerdy teenager — bad hair cut, braces and all. She described that look as “the real me” and said it gave her flashbacks to when she was 12 and had braces of her own.‚
Superbowl special “Chuck Versus The Third Dimension” was also discussed — the episodes aired the Monday after the Superbowl and was the first television episode to be shot entirely in 3D.‚
Schwartz and Fedak did not know if the 3D version of the episode would make it to the second season DVD (with a pair of 3D glasses packaged with it).‚
Schwartz also didn’t know if they would create another 3D episode or instead outdo themselves — maybe next time in Smell-O-Vision.
