Chad Heads to Roku Channel for Season 2 After TBS Cancellation

By Jessica Lerner 

The Roku Channel will exclusively air Season 2 of Chad at a yet-to-be-determined date.

The streamer also has non-exclusive rights to Season 1.

“On behalf of myself and the incredible team that put such hard work and passion into creating Chad, I’m thrilled to share that the second season of this story will be told on its new home, The Roku Channel,” star and creator Nasim Pedrad said in a statement. “So much of my heart is infused in this show.”


“The unwavering support and enthusiasm of the Roku Originals team has been incredible,” Pedrad continued. “I really look forward to working with them, and I can’t wait to finally share this season with our loyal fans.”

Pedrad plays a teenage Persian-American juggling high school demands, his cultural identity and his mother’s dating life in the drama series. TBS previously canceled Chad ahead of its Season 2 premiere.

“The Roku Channel is committed to championing creativity and fostering great storytelling. Chad is a story years-in-the-making that deserved to be told,” Colin Davis, head of scripted originals at Roku, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to be partnering closely with Nasim and her team to bring the next chapter of this exceptional series both to existing fans, as well as sharing it for the first time with new audiences, on The Roku Channel.”
