South Side, the critically-acclaimed HBO Max comedy series, has been renewed for season 3 at the streamer.
The Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle-created comedy moved from Comedy Central (along with The Other Two) to HBO Max for their sophomore seasons. The Other Two was recently renewed as welll.
“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 at 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.’”
Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle said, “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.”
South Side “follows two friends who just graduated from community college and are ready to take over the world, but 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.”
The series stars Bashir Salahuddin, Sultan Salahuddin, Kareme Young, Quincy Young, Chandra Russell, Zuri Salahuddin, Nefetari Spencer and Diallo Riddle.
The show is created by Bashir Salahuddin, Diallo Riddle and Sultan Salahuddin and produced by MTV Entertainment Studios. Bashir Salahuddin, Diallo Riddle and Michael Blieden serve as executive producers. Tony Hernandez executive produces for JAX Media. Ari Pearce, Kristyn Deignan and Tara Power are producers for MTV Entertainment Studios.
