HBO Max Renews 'South Side' for Season 3

HBO Max has today renewed its original comedy series South Side for a third season. An episode count and premiere date window were not immediately announced.

The comedy stars Bashir Salahuddin, Sultan Salahuddin, Kareme Young, Quincy Young, Chandra Russell, Zuri Salahuddin, Nefetari Spencer and Diallo Riddle.

Bashir Salahuddin, Diallo Riddle and Sultan Salahuddin created the comedy. They executive produce with Michael Blieden and Tony Hernandez. MTV Entertainment Studios and Jax Media produce.

"To be able to bring this world and these characters to life has been a true joy," said Suzanna Makkos, Executive Vice President of 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.'"

"We are blessed," added Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin. "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."
