“South Side” has been renewed for a second season at Comedy Central.
The shenanigan-filled series, written by Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin, is set in and around the working-class neighborhood of Englewood on the South Side of Chicago.
The news of the renewal comes just five episodes into the freshman season.
The show follows two friends who just graduated from community college … so now they’re ready to take over the world! But until they do they’re stuck at Rent-T-Own, a retail-rental crossroads where the South Side’s vast ensemble of characters come together. Despite the obstacles of inner-city life, these friends and their co-workers all strive to achieve their entrepreneurial dreams.
Brought to life by local Chicagoans, both in front of and behind the camera, this show gives viewers an authentic portrayal of what life on the South Side is all about. It’s evidence that what you see on the news is only a small piece of the city.
Diallo took to Instagram to share his excitement about the renewal of “South Side.”
With the success of “South Side” and “Sherman’s Showcase,” Diallo Riddle and Bashir Salahuddin are becoming the Kings of Comedy television!
If you haven’t watched “South Side” you are truly missing out on some top-notch tomfoolery!
