With the NBC upfronts coming next week, the network made a few preemptive moves by renewing the cult-hit series Chuck and canceling first-season shows The Event and Law & Order: Los Angeles.

The Chuck pick-up comes with a caveat though: the upcoming fifth season will be Chuck's last. NBC ordered 13 new episodes of Chuck, which means the show will likely wrap up sometime in December, with a new series taking over the Monday 8 PM time slot. Chuck averaged a 2.0 rating with 5.6 million viewers per episode this past season.

As far as The Event, the show may have new life, even after getting the ax from NBC. There are rumors that The Event producers are currently shopping the show to other distributors for another season. Netflix is one of the potential distributors, since they recently started venturing into original programming by picking up the series House of Cards. Other cable networks are also reportedly in the mix to pick up The Event. Here's what series creator Nick Waters had to say about continuing The Event.

"We have a dedicated fan base, and we promised them we will deliver one way or another and will continue to tell our stories."

It isn't known if Law & Order: Los Angeles is being shopped to other networks at this time.
