Once the finale airs tonight, all Chuck fans will have left are memories and five seasons on DVD with which to remember the beloved NBC series. But just because the show is ending doesn't mean you'll never see the Buy More gang again.
In fact, several of the cast and crew are already gearing up for new projects. So what is everybody up to now that Chuck is on the way out?
Yvonne Strahovski, aka Sarah Walker
Geek goddess Strahovski looks to be keeping busy post-Chuck, with a co-starring role already lined up in the new Seth Rogen comedy My Mother's Curse, about a mother and son hawking an invention. She has also been cast as a scientist in I, Frankenstein opposite Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), based on the graphic novel by Kevin Grevioux. In addition to the film roles, Strahovski is also lending her voice to the videogame Mass Effect 3, due out in March.
Ryan McPartlin, aka Devon "Captain Awesome" Woodcomb
With his movie-star good looks and chiseled jaw, it's no surprise McPartlin already has a new gig lined up. He has signed on for a multi-episode arc on CSI: Miami, and should be able to pull off the requisite pair of dark sunglasses and fit in nicely. In a recent interview with Red Eye Chicago, he mentioned he is also reading pilots for the upcoming season.
Zachary Levi, aka Chuck Bartowski
Oddly enough, Chuck himself doesn't have a lot lined up for the near future. Coming off a five-year stint on a TV series, who could blame him for taking it easy? But he is slated to do some voice acting for the direct-to-DVD Disney flick Tangled Ever After, a sequel to the Rapunzel tale Tangled. More interestingly, he is working on pet project The Nerd Machine, a proposed communication hub for all things geek.
Josh Schwartz, co-executive producer
After running a cult favorite show in Chuck, Schwartz is going full-on meta with his new show, fittingly titled Cult (with former Farscape creator Rockne S. O'Bannon). The CW pilot pickup will focus on mysterious disappearances happening around a fictional fan-favorite show. If the series hews more to dark quirk, as opposed to straight-up soap opera, it could be good. Schwartz's feature-film directorial debut Fun Size is also in the pipe, which follows the story of a young girl who loses her little brother while trick-or-treating. On the less-interesting side (at least for sci-fi fans, anyway), he is also working on a 1980s-set spinoff to Sex and the City called The Carrie Diaries.
Vik Sahay, aka Lester Patel
The smaller half of Jeffster will be showing up on the silver screen soon with a small role in the new American Pie flick American Reunion, due out in April. He is also co-starring in the upcoming comedy flick My Awkward Sexual Adventure, which, based on the title alone, could be pretty funny.
Adam Baldwin, aka John Casey
One of the best Baldwins of the bunch, Adam has filmed a small role in the upcoming family film The Assignment, which should be an interesting change of pace from his butt-kicking alter ego on Chuck. He is also joining Strahovski doing voice work for Mass Effect 3 as the character Kal'Reegar. Admittedly not a busy slate, but in an interview with BuddyTV he was cracking wise about his future: "It's right now in that period we like to call being 'at liberty...' There are a lot of possibilities but nothing in stone yet... Or you can put it, 'I'll never work again.'"
Bonita Friedericy, aka General Diane Beckman
After playing a high-ranking government official the past five years, Friedericy seems to be using those connections to slide into some upcoming feature film roles. She has nailed down a small role in the horror flick The Lords of Salem, and a co-starring role in gritty drama The Prop Is the Girl. Friedericy has made a career of landing bit roles in TV shows and movies for the past decade, appearing in everything from ABC's short-lived series The Nine to the third season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
McG, co-executive producer
Famed director McG always has his hands into something and will still have two other shows on the air once Chuck ends. He is an executive producer on the CW series Supernatural and Nikita, which ironically enough could both join Chuck heading off into the sunset this season due to iffy ratings. McG is also producing the upcoming Nicolas Cage action flick Stolen, which follows a man (Cage) as he races against the clock to save his kidnapped daughter. He is also directing This Means War, a comedy action flick with Chris Pine (Star Trek) and Reese Witherspoon.
Scott Krinsky, aka Jeff Barnes
Krinsky has a small role in the upcoming comedy American Idiots, playing a tribesman. Apart from that, he tells Assignment X he is weighing his options and checking out some scripts. "Just starting to read a lot of stuff and we'll see what happens," he said. "It's exciting seeing what's out there and not knowing what's next again."
