NBC has renewed Chuck, ending weeks of speculation and (often loud) demands from fans. So yay, right? But with every silver lining, there must be a cloud. The order is only for 13 episodes and there are other catches. Entertainment Weekly's Matt Ausiello has some details:

The 13-episode pickup came after Warner Bros. agreed to make significant budget concessions, including scaling back the number of episodes several members of the show's stellar supporting cast will appear in and, per one insider, possibly eliminating one actor altogether (R.I.P. Anna Wu?). The show is also expected to cut two of its staff writers.

Still, good news is good news. Now what's to be done with all those "Save Chuck" Twitter icons?
