‘Chad,’ a sitcom created by Nasim Pedrad, who also stars as the eponymous character, follows a young Persian-American boy through his first year of high school. He embarks on a mission to impress the cool kids in order to realise his teenage ambitions of being a popular kid. Throughout the process, his patience and sanity are put to the test. In addition, he must deal with his mother’s dating life as well as acknowledge his cultural background.

Chad Season 1 Production
Season 1 of ‘Chad’ premiered on TBS on April 6, 2021, and ended on May 25, 2021. The show consists of eight episodes, each lasting approximately 20-24 minutes. The coming-of-age comedy series has been compared to Hulu’s “Pen15,” in which the protagonist is also played by an adult actor and is surrounded by a cast of children. Chad is misunderstood and arrogant, the result of being a socially isolated adolescent.
Pedrad said she intended to make a character with “nuance and uniqueness” as well as “relatable weaknesses.” As reviewers have pointed out, while some viewers may identify with him, others may find him tough. Despite the varied reviews, the show’s fans may be looking forward to another season. TBS confirmed its renewal in May 2021, as expected.
The program is finally getting a platform and some much-needed hype after a long period of difficulties throughout creation! From Fox to TBS, ‘Chad’ has gone a long way and is now firmly established within the 19-45 demographic. “I’m so thankful to TBS for believing in Chad and providing an adult woman the opportunity to live her dream of playing a jarringly awkward adolescent guy, while simultaneously driving the show behind the camera,” Pedrad said in public statement.
Chad Season 2 Release Date
Despite our best wishes for a steady comeback, neither the creators nor the network have provided any development updates for the upcoming season. As a result, determining a specific day and hour for its launch is difficult. Needless to say, filming will take a few months, and if all goes well, the second season of ‘Chad’ will premiere on TBS in 2022.
Chad Season 2 Cast Information
Chad, a socially awkward fourteen-year-old youngster who is navigating his freshman year of high school, is played by Nasim Pedrad. Pedrad will undoubtedly return in the following season. Ella Mika, who plays Chad’s younger sister Niki, and Saba Homayoon, who plays Chad’s mother, are also anticipated to return.
Paul Chahidi portrays Hamid, Chad’s distant relative; Jake Ryan portrays Peter, Chad’s best buddy; and Alexa Loo portrays Denise, Chad’s classmate. All of the actors mentioned above will almost probably return in their respective roles.
A few other cast members, including Madeleine Arthur (Marjorie), Thomas Barbusca (Reid), Phillip Mullings Jr. (Ikrimah), and Jarrad Paul (Charles), may also be planning a return. Furthermore, the California Film Commission provided a $3.6 million tax credit to move production of the second season from Vancouver to California. This could indicate that the cast and crew will be expanded. Max Searle (known for “Dave,” “Two and a Half Men,” and other shows) will serve as co-show runner alongside creator and actor Pedrad in the forthcoming season, according to reports.
