TBS announced today that Chad has been picked up for a second season. The news comes after a strong start to the show which, through seven episodes, has garnered fairly positive critical reviews and ratings that rank it as one of cable TV's top comedies.

The half-hour series stars SNL alum Nasim Pedrad as the titular 14-year-old Persian boy, who is attending his first year of high school. Wanting desperately to be popular, Chad's friendships and sanity are tested as he does his best to make friends with the cool kids while enduring his mom's dating life and reconciling with his cultural identity.
