After breaking the news yesterday (click HERE for the report) that NBC has ordered full-season orders for 3 freshman programs (Outsourced, Law & Order: LA, and The Event), we report that the Peacock continued to dish out their orders today. The Nerd Herd will be around for a full season! Chuck, currently in its 4th season, has received an order for the back 11 episodes, bringing it to a 24 episode season (Awesome!). Joining Chuck with the news today is freshman drama Chase, which has seemed to struggle finding sure footing this season. Nevertheless, Chase will be around for a full season after receiving a back nine order, per a tweet from show runner Jonathan Littman “#Chase=back 9.” Of NBC’s new programming this season, Undercovers is the only one that has yet to receive a verdict one way or the other; however, the network has ordered an addition 4 scripts for the show. Production on Outlaw was shut down and the show was subsequently cancelled earlier this season.
