Women and non-white citizens have remained in the background of society for years. Thankfully, people are more sensitive to sexism and racism today. The Chair is a Netflix comedy series that first aired on August 20, 2021, and since then, we have been eagerly waiting for The Chair Season 2. It is about a woman who becomes the first non-white woman chair of English at a fictional college called Pembroke. The series is crucial in terms of its critique of common behaviors towards non-white people, especially women.
The first season of The Chair consists of six episodes of 30 minutes each. In the six episodes, we are introduced to the characters, but not all conflicts were resolved in the final episode. This leads us to the question of whether The Chair is renewed or canceled. Let’s get right to what we know about The Chair Season 2.
Will there be The Chair Season 2?
We are sure that fans are impatiently waiting for The Chair Season 2. Almost half a year has passed since The Chair first aired in August 2021. However, there has been no official announcement from Netflix whether The Chair will be renewed or canceled. So everyone is wondering if there will be The Chair Season 2.
Since Netflix is silent about The Chair Season 2, it is impossible to say for sure if there will be a second season of The Chair. Although the fan community is expecting a new season, we are sorry to say that The Chair is unlikely to be renewed. Sandra Oh is also not hopeful about the season to come. She said “I’m just happy that it happened, it was a great experience. But I am sad that it’s over.”
The Chair Netflix Filming Locations
The Chair was filmed in the state of Pennsylvania, USA. Since Pembroke is a fictional college, the real campuses were used for the series. These were the campuses of two universities, Washington & Jefferson College in Washington and the Shadyside campus of Chatham College in Pittsburgh.
The scene in the first episode where Bill’s daughter Doodles is on her way to college was shot at Pittsburgh International Airport.
