‘South Side,’ the Comedy Series, canceled by HBO Max

South Side, the comedy by Diallo Riddle, Bashir Salahuddin,  and Sultan Salahuddin, was not renewed for a fourth season by HBO Max.

Following two buddies who have recently graduated from community college and are eager to rule the world, South Side premiered on Comedy Central before transferring to HBO Max for Season 2 in November 2021.

Before then, though, they are forced to work at Rent-T-Own. The show provides an accurate representation of South Side life because it was filmed there, in Chicago’s Englewood area.

A spokeswoman for HBO Max said, “Although we will not be moving through with a fourth season of South Side, we are incredibly pleased with the rich world  Diallo Riddle, Bashir Salahuddin, and Sultan Salahuddin created. In addition to Michael Blieden, Tony Hernandez, the incredibly brilliant cast and crew, and our collaborators at MTV Entertainment Studios, we appreciate them. “

This popular comedy successfully juggled funny, occasionally wacky humor for three seasons with incisive, hyperlocal social commentary about living on Chicago’s South Side. The outcome was a completely original, ambitious, and courageous comedy that could connect with anyone pursuing the American dream,” he added.
