It is being reported that HBO Max has cancelled South Side after its third season. The news comes less than two months after the comedy wrapped its now-final run on the streaming service.

The half-hour series started out on Comedy Central in 2019 but lasted only one season before being moved to HBO Max in 2021. Reviews of all three seasons have been positive from both viewers and critics, who have praised the show for its authentic and humorous look at life on Chicago's south side.

Set in the working class neighborhood of Englewood, the series follows two friends and community college grads who are ready to make a name for themselves. But until they get their act together, they're stuck working at Rent-T-Own, a retail-rental outlet where the town's cast of characters come together.
