Zachary Levi, known for playing goofy (yet charming) characters in movies like “Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel” and “Tangled,” wants to make a comeback with "Chuck" which was canceled after five seasons. 

“Chuck” was a show about—well, Chuck—an expelled Stanford student who becomes tangled into spy work unwillingly. The show was witty, funny, serious and even had some romance. So why did it get canceled after five seasons? Low ratings. 

With “Veronica Mars” making it to the big screen after cancellation, Levi wants to do the same. With the help of funding through Kickstarter, the upcoming movie in March gives hope to other shows like “Chuck” trying to make a comeback. 

“It really is just a matter of having faith in audiences and working kind of symbiotically with them,” Levi said to Entertainment Weekly.

Nothing is set in stone, but fans are fans. If they want to see "Chuck" back, they would support Zachary Levi, who is optimistic, enthusiastic and inspired by his fellow CW show's cast and crew.
