Chad will not be returning for a third season. Roku Channel has decided to cancel the comedy series from Nasim Pedrad.

Starring Pedrad, Jake Ryan, Paul Chahidi, Saba Homayoon, Ella Mika, Alexa Loo, Thomas Barbusca, and Sara Malal Rowe, the series follows an Iranian teen (Pedrad) as he tries to handle high school. Season two focused on Chad’s sophomore year.

Chad was initially developed in 2016 as a half-hour FOX comedy, but the network passed on the series. TBS picked it up in 2019, aired the first season in Spring 2021, and renewed the comedy for a second season.

Roku Channel picked up the comedy series after TBS dropped it from the schedule just days before it was set to air its second season. Roku released season two in January.

Deadline shared the following about the series:

A spokesperson for the Roku Channel, which released Chad’s second season, confirmed to Deadline that the streamer will not be proceeding with future seasons.

Roku originally had committed to taking on the finished but unaired second season of Chad (along with Season 1 repeats), so a Season 3 was considered a long shot but a possibility. It is now not happening, officially ending the show’s wild ride.
