The critically-acclaimed comedy South Side has been renewed for season 2 at Comedy Central.

From Bashir Salahuddin, Diallo Riddle and Michael Blieden, the series currently holds a rare 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

The official description of the series reads:  The show follows two friends who just graduated 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.

The show stars Sultan Salahuddin, Kareme Young, Quincy Young, Chandra Russell, Bashir Salahuddin, Zuri Salahuddin and more.

“Our mission is to show the world the joy of Chicago. Comedy Central has been a fantastic creative partner in this effort. They allow all the Chicagoans who make this show possible to create with zero compromises. We are blessed,” said Salahuddin, Riddle and Michael Blieden in a statement.

South Side is a truly unique and special show – one that is first and foremost incredibly funny, but also redefines perceptions of Chicago through storytelling and humor. Diallo, Bashir and Michael have created such an incredible comedic world with this show and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for season two,” said Jonas Larsen and Sarah Babineau, Co-Heads of Original Content for Comedy Central.”

The series airs Wednesdays on Comedy Central.
