It is being reported that Chad has been cancelled by TBS. The comedy was set to return for its second season tonight, but the network has made the last minute decision not to air the show's sophomore run after all.

The move to ax the half-hour series so close to its premiere is unexpected, but does not come as a complete surprise. TBS originally had Chad slated to return for Season 2 in April, but moved it off the schedule just days before its planned air date. The cable network also ditched plans to air reality series 'The Big D' last month, just weeks before its premiere.

Chad could end up somewhere though, as filming on Season 2 has long been completed. For its part, TBS has stated that they are exploring options to find it the right home.

Chad 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.
