“Hey guys, I’m here to break the bad news. Sadly, Side Hustle will not be returning for a season three,” Isaiah shared in a video on Instagram. “I’m just really saddened by this news and I just wanted to tell y’all, ‘Thank you.’ Thank you to those who watched it, thank you to everyone on the crew who worked on it. Script supervisors, the PAs, the light guys, the sound guys, camera guys."

“Working on that show, for me, was a dream come true,” he continued. “I’m always so happy when I look back and think of all the great times I had on that show, with my TV father Tedward, Daryl Brown, Presley’s TV father, Kurt [Ela], Mitchell, Jayden, Jules, Jacques, Leah [Mei Gold]… Yeah, Horrigan, Reyn [Doi], everyone. Just, I love you all and it’s just, thank you guys so much, for making the show a reality in the first place.”

Side Hustle follows best friends, smart and sarcastic Lex (Jules LeBlanc) and confident and tough Presley (Jayden Bartels), after fireworks accidentally destroy a boat belonging to the dad of their quirky friend and neighbor, Munchy (Isaiah Crews). Needing to find a way to pay him back for the boat, they devise a plan to take on local jobs in order to make enough money to cover the costs. Using KidDING!, an app created by Presley’s tech-savvy younger brother Fisher (Mitchell Berg), the friends are able to connect with people looking for help with odd and unusual jobs, while Munchy’s bossy older brother Jaget (Jacques Chevelle) makes sure they keep up with the payments.
