Critics Consensus

Chuck remains sturdily delightful in its fourth year, but the reliable charms of the series are beginning to seem a touch too safe.

Critic Reviews for Chuck Season 4

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5)

It's a very fun show, and there's always something to recommend, even in its weakest episodes, but this season premiere suggested that the show isn't sure where to go, moving forward.

By the time the show got to its emotional conclusion... it all worked.

I did like how Casey, once his new team was revealed, tried to reach out to Chuck and Sarah.

Getting the Intersect permanently out of Chuck's head is actually a pretty smart move.

it's good to see Linda Hamilton kicking some ass again and Dolph Lundgren and Olivia Munn certainly added to the fun.

Jul 18, 2018 | Full Review…

It's no secret that this season of Chuck has felt a bit more blah than previous years.

Jul 18, 2018 | Full Review…

One thing Chuck has always had going for it -- this show gets awesome guest stars.

Jul 18, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

This is probably one of the best season openers the show has produced so far. It sets a number of plot horses running and saddles up a few more besides.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, at least in the opening episode of this season, things are more back to normal than perhaps they should be.

Jun 19, 2018 | Full Review…

If you've not caught Chuck yet then it's four seasons in and still going strong.

Apr 23, 2018 | Full Review…

It will be difficult for Chuck to ever reach the heights it did in the last stretch of episodes of episodes of season two, but the creative team assembled some darn good efforts this season.

Oct 30, 2017 | Full Review…

This [finale] was pretty lacklustre.

Audience Reviews for Chuck: Season 4

  • Jun 01, 2020
    Just funny, dorky and sweet
  • Aug 04, 2014
    The fourth season of Chuck often feels rushed, unsure of itself, and afraid to take new risks, but pulls through with solid performances from the cast and some great episodes.
  • May 21, 2014
    Probably the best season all around of NBC's Chuck, It blends the nonstop spy action with a dramatic relationship issue, the marriage, and the search for Chuck's long-estranged mother.
  • May 12, 2014
    Season four of Chuck plays out similarly to season two... It takes what the season before it had, and expands upon it without changing any major components of the show, aside from Chuck and Sarah's relationship that is. Also, this season shows several of the other characters discovering the secret CIA base hidden under the Pricesmart and how they deal with it. It's entertaining, but gets a little stale towards the end... Bottom line, this may be the worst season of this fantastic show, but it's still definitely worth watching.
