When we last saw Chuck, he was listening to a recording from his dead dad (which we don't consider a spoiler since, hey, this IS Chuck after all, and Scott Bakula's character could still be alive) telling him, "It's time you learned about your family." Namely, Mary Elizabeth Bartowski, Chuck's long-missing mom.

At the time, we had no idea which actress would bring mother Bartowski to life, but Chuck's creators, Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak, announced at Comic-Con that it would be none other than Linda Hamilton, aka The Terminator's Sarah Connor.

We won't get to see her in action until the fourth season premieres Sept. 20, but the series' new promo gives us the tiniest glimpse. Which we'll happily take.

Check it out below.
