Nickelodeon Hints That 'Side Hustle' Has Been Renewed for Season 2

Following news that the first season of the network's popular live-action comedy series Side Hustle has wrapped, Nickelodeon may have revealed that Side Hustle has been renewed for season two!

Jason Chong, who serves as a choreographer on both Side Hustle and Nickelodeon's upcoming comedy series That Girl Lay Lay, posted a photo of a message Nickelodeon sent to the cast and crew which reads:

"Thank you ALL for your Season 1 hustle!
Can't wait to have you hustle back for Season 2
Enjoy your break
- from all your friends at Nick"

Update (7/25) - Nickelodeon has further hinted that they have renewed Side Hustle for season 2 in the comments on a recent TikTok video, replying to a fan "Are you excited for season 2?"!

Update (8/26) - Director Wendy Faraone has confirmed that Side Hustle season two has gone into production! Episode #204 will be titled "Al-Dude-Isburg" and is written by Laura House and directed by Faraone. Filming is taking place at Paramount Pictures Studios.

Starring social media sensations and real-life best friends, Jules LeBlanc and Jayden Bartels, Side Hustle follows best friends, smart and sarcastic Lex (LeBlanc) and confident and tough Presley (Bartels), as they devise a plan to make money when fireworks accidentally destroy a boat belonging to the dad of their quirky friend and neighbor, Munchy (Isaiah Crews). The series is created and executive produced by Dave Malkoff (Henry Danger, Sam & Cat, Victorious).

Forced to come up with creative ways to earn money to pay for the damages, Lex, Presley and Munchy enlist the help of Presley’s tech-savvy younger brother, Fisher (Mitchell Berg), who creates an app to connect with people looking for help with small jobs, and Munchy’s bossy older brother Jaget (Jacques Chevelle), who makes sure they keep up with the payments.

Side Hustle was shot in front of a live studio audience in Los Angeles, California. Initially picked-up for 10 episodes, season one was then doubled to 20 episodes in January with six more episodes ordered in March.

Side Hustle made its world premiere on Saturday, November 7, 2020 on Nickelodeon USA. Originally ordered in February 2020 with production starting in the following March, production was hit by the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. Production picked up again during Fall, with the cast and crew working hard to keep episode delays minimal.

John Beck & Ron Hart (Knight SquadFuller House, Liv and Maddie) serve as executive producers and showrunners. Production of Side Hustle for Nickelodeon is overseen by Shauna Phelan, Senior Vice President, Live-Action Scripted Content. Omar Camacho serves as Nickelodeon’s Executive in Charge of Production for the series.

John Beck and Ron Hart are now currently working on Nickelodeon's upcoming comedy That Girl Lay Lay, starring teen sensation and hip-hop artist Alaya “That Girl Lay Lay” High. The show is slated to premiere this September on Nickelodeon.

Side Hustle season two has yet to be announced by Nickelodeon.
