HBO Max Cancels 'South Side' After Three Seasons

HBO Max has today decided to cancel its original comedy series South Side after three seasons. The comedy wrapped its 28-episode run on December 29, 2022.

HBO Max released the following statement: "While HBO Max will not be moving forward with a fourth season of South Side, we are so proud of the rich world Bashir Salahuddin, Diallo Riddle and Sultan Salahuddin created. We thank them and Michael Blieden, Tony Hernandez, the supremely talented cast and crew and our partners at MTV Entertainment Studios. For three seasons, this beloved series balanced cutting, hyperlocal social commentary about life on the South Side of Chicago with silly, sometimes zany humor. The result was a wholly unique, ambitious, and fearless comedy that could speak to everyone living the American dream."

The comedy starred Sultan Salahuddin, Kareme Young, Quincy Young, Chandra Russell, Bashir Salahuddin and Diallo Riddle.

The Salahuddins and Riddle co-created the comedy. They executive produced with Michael Blieden and Tony Hernandez. MTV Entertainment Studios and Jax Media produced.

The first season was produced for and aired on Comedy Central. The show then made the transition to HBO Max - where it aired its second and third seasons.
