Chad stars and is created and executive produced by Pedrad, an actress and comedian who starred on Saturday Night Live from 2009 to 2014. The series follows Chad Amani (Pedrad), a 14-year-old Persian boy as he navigates high school.

Season 2 will see Chad (Pedrad) weather a scandal that ends his run as class president, develop a surprising new love interest, and get a visit from his tough-as-nails Iranian grandmother.

"Chad's epic path to teenage self-realization is not always a straight line -- but the support from his family and best friend Peter (Jake Ryan) keep Chad on track, giving him the confidence to help him become who he has always wanted to be -- the most American boy in the history of the world," an official description reads.

Paul Chahidi, Saba Homayoon, Ella Mika, Alexa Loo and Thomas Barbusca also star, with Sara Malal Rowe to join the cast in Season 2.
