“South Side” has been renewed for a third season from HBO Max. The third season of the comedy series will be the second season of the series to air on HBO Max.
HBO Max Decided to Sequence ‘South Side’
The first season premiered in 2019 before being sold to HBO Max alongside the Comedy Central series “The Other Two,” which was selected for its third season in September. The first two seasons of “South Side” are currently airing on HBO Max.
“South Side” follows two friends (Sultan Salahuddin, Kareem Young) who have just graduated from a community college and are ready to take over the world. However, they continue to work at Rent-T-Own until they do. The series was filmed in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood.
Series co-creators, stars, and executive producers Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle said, “We’re doing a show starring our family and friends about a city we love. ‘South Side’ finds joy in the extraordinary adventures of ordinary people. We challenge ourselves to make each episode a unique and unexpected journey. We have no idea where our characters will find themselves in season three, and we couldn’t be more excited to find out.” said.
Along with Sultan Salahuddin and Kareem Young, Bashir Salahuddin, Riddle, Quincy Young, Chandra Russell, Zuri Salahuddin, and Nefetari Spencer are also in the cast of the series. Bashir and Riddle co-created the series with Sultan. Bashir and Riddle are also executive producers with Michael Blieden, Tony Hernandez of JAX Media, Ari Pearce, Kristyn Deignan, and Tara Power for MTV Entertainment Studios. MTV Entertainment Studios is producing the series.
Speaking on behalf of HBO Max, Suzanna Makkos said, “It was a real joy to be able to bring this world and these characters to life. Many people say ‘South Side’ is about the American dream, and the stories by Bashir and Diallo fully embody that dream, with both sharp humor and uplifting cultural commentary. I think I speak for everyone when I say ‘queue time’ here on HBO Max.” she said.
