‘Chad,’ a sitcom developed and starring Nasim Pedrad, follows a young Persian-American teenager through his first year of high school. In order to realize his teenage dreams of being a popular child, he sets out on a journey to impress the cool kids. His patience and sanity are put to the test during the procedure. He also has to deal with his mother’s dating life and recognize his ethnic heritage.
A quick run-through season 1 of Chad
‘Chad’ began on TBS on April 6, 2021, and ran through May 25, 2021. There are eight episodes in all, each lasting about 20-24 minutes. The Hulu sitcom “Pen15,” in which the protagonist is similarly portrayed by an adult actor and is accompanied by a cast of youngsters, has been compared to the coming-of-age comedy series. Because he is a socially isolated adolescent, Chad is misunderstood and haughty.
We cannot deny the fact that Chad, a cringe comedy in the first place began with the idea that the eponymous guy is yearning to enter the ranks of his high school’s popular kids. Chad ultimately achieves this aim in the May 25 finale, but not in the way he had anticipated. He pranks his own locker to fool his peers into believing it was a cheerleader who did it, but Chad goes far with everything he does. After everyone assumes (incorrectly) that he was the victim of a hate crime, the attention is on him. Chad not only continues to lie about it, but he also becomes school president, causing him to lose his real closest buddy Peter (Jake Ryan) in the process.
After a lengthy period of problems during development, the software is now receiving a platform and some much-needed publicity! ‘Chad’ has come a long way from Fox to TBS and is now solidly entrenched within the 19-45 demographic. “I’m so grateful to TBS for believing in Chad and giving an adult woman the chance to portray a jarringly uncomfortable teenage male while still steering the program behind the camera,” Pedrad said in a statement.
The upcoming Season 2 of Chad
Pedrad is eager to develop the universe that was built in season one, including letting Chad suffer the repercussions of his dishonesty and repeated disobedience. “I’m curious to see what happens if and when he’s discovered, and how it combines with his other goals, such as finding love or tracking down his father,” she adds. Pedrad also mentions how crucial it was for her to see Chad and Peter’s relationship come to a head in “Finale,” when the latter finally does something for himself by supporting his fiancée Denise (Alexa Loo) and revealing Chad’s secret to her.
The majority of Chad’s coming-of-age tale is told via the prism of uncomfortable and wince-inducing situational humor. It’s not easy to swallow on its own, but the show’s storytelling subverts the cringe factor with surprisingly subtle, earnest character development. “Perhaps I have a greater tolerance for discomfort than others,” Pedrad adds, “but what was most important to me was presenting this character from an honest and grounded place and expressing the immigrant kid experience as I remember it.” He wasn’t quite as insane or selfish as Chad, but the motive for his actions, as well as the dread that drives him, were based on bits over his own childhood experiences.
Chad Season 2 release date
Notwithstanding our fondest expectations for a steady return, neither the producers nor the network has released any season development updates. As a result, deciding on a certain launch date and time is challenging. Filming will take a few months, and the second season of ‘Chad’ will be broadcast on TBS in 2022 provided everything goes well.
Despite the varied reviews, the show’s fans may be looking forward to another season. TBS announced its renewal in May 2021, as expected. Furthermore, the California Film Commission provided a $3.6 million tax credit to move production of the second season from Vancouver to California. This might indicate that the cast and crew will be expanded. It’s also been claimed that Max Searle (of ‘Dave,’ ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and other shows) would serve as co-showrunner alongside creator and star Pedrad in the future season.
