The following is a list of episodes for the Comedy Central sketch series Chappelle's Show. The show premiered on January 22, 2003 and ran for two successful seasons until co-creator Dave Chappelle backed out of the much anticipated third season in spring of 2005.

On July 9, 2006, over a year and a half after its original scheduled premiere, Season 3 of Chappelle's Show began, comprising three episodes. Advertised as the "lost episodes", they consisted of sketches filmed by Chappelle before leaving the show, hosted by series regulars Charlie Murphy and Donnell Rawlings. The last of these episodes aired on July 23.

In total, 28 episodes of Chappelle's Show produced between 2003 and 2006, in addition to a Music Jump-Off special and four compilation episodes.

The DVD sets of the uncensored first and second season have sold extremely well since their release. As of 2004, The Season 1 boxset of Chappelle's Show is the best selling television series on DVD.[1] On July 25, 2006, the lost episodes were released on DVD.
