'Chuck' exclusive: I spy a Scott Bakula comeback!

Okay, this is Chucking awesome.

Scott Bakula has signed on to reprise his role as Chuck’s spy daddy, Steve, for multiple episodes.

Pops was last seen in the season 2 finale fleeing daughter Ellie’s wedding reception for parts unknown.

Chuck exec producer Josh Schwartz calls Bakula’s comeback arc — which would fall at the end of the spy comedy’s third season (premiering this Sunday!) — “the biggest thing we’ve ever done on the show.”

Bakula is currently starring in TNT’s Men of A Certain Age. With production wrapped on that show’s first season, Bakula was free to return to Chuck.

Chucking awesome, right?
