Nickelodeon Renews Side Hustle


Nickelodeon has ordered a second season of the hit live-action buddy comedy Side Hustle, set to premiere next month.

The series, which follows best friends Lex and Presley as they take on odd jobs to help pay for a boat they destroyed, is set to return with new episodes on September 11 on Nickelodeon, leading into the season two premiere on October 2.

The 20-episode second season will begin with “Model Employees,” in which Lex and Presley get hired as models during their town’s fashion week. However, it turns out they were hired to be toy model builders, not runway models.

Dave Malkoff (Henry Danger, Sam & Cat, Victorious) serves as executive producer and showrunner alongside John Beck and Ron Hart (Fuller House, Liv and Maddie). Production is overseen by Zack Olin and Shauna Phelan, co-heads of live-action for Nickelodeon and Awesomeness. Omar Camacha is Nickelodeon’s executive in charge of production for the series.
