South Side got a thumbs up from HBO Max for a third season. The streaming service announced the renewal of the Chicago series.
The second season of the beloved, critically acclaimed comedy series premiered as a Max Original in November 2021.
Starring Bashir Salahuddin, Sultan Salahuddin, Kareme Young, Quincy Young, Chandra Russell, Zuri Salahuddin, Nefetari Spencer, and Diallo Riddle, South Side follows two friends who just graduated from community college and are ready to take over the world. Until they do, they’re stuck working at Rent-T-Own.
Shot on location in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood, the show offers an authentic look into what life on the South Side is all about.”
Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle, creators of the series, said the following about the renewal:
“We are blessed. We get to make a show starring our family and friends about a city we love. South Side finds joy in the extraordinary adventures of ordinary folks. We challenge ourselves to make every episode a unique and unexpected journey. We have no clue where our characters will find themselves in season three and we couldn’t be more excited to find out.”
“To be able to bring this world and these characters to life has been a true joy,” said Suzanna Makkos, EVP, Original Comedy and Adult Animation, HBO Max. “A lot of people say that South Side is about the American dream, and the stories that Bashir and Diallo have crafted completely embody that dream with both razor-sharp humor and refreshing cultural commentary. I think I speak for everyone here at HBO Max when I say, ‘it’s time for the percolator.’”
