South Side is coming to an end on HBO Max.
The comedy series from co-creators Bashir Salahuddin, Diallo Riddle and Sultan Salahuddin is not moving forward with a fourth season, a representative for the Warner Bros. Discovery-backed platform told on Tuesday.
“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,” the statement read. “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.”
South Side focused on friends Simon James (Sultan Salahuddin) and Kareme Odom (Kareme Young) living in Chicago’s Englewood neighborhood who strike out in the business world after graduating from community college.
Its main cast also included Chandra Russell and Bashir Salahuddin, while recurring castmembers included Lil Rel Howery, Zuri Salahuddin, Quincy Young, Langston Kerman and Diallo Riddle.
The series from MTV Entertainment Studios premiered on Comedy Central in July 2019 before heading to HBO Max for a second season that launched in November 2021. HBO Max released an eight-episode third season in December.
South Side follows Gossip Girl, Titans, Doom Patrol and Pennyworth as HBO Max series that the streamer has confirmed in recent weeks as not moving forward.
