'Side Hustle' Season One Wraps

Production on the freshman season of Nickelodeon's popular live-action comedy series Side Hustle has wrapped! The news was announced by John Beck, an executive producer and showrunner on the series, on Twitter. In his tweet, Beck also shared some behind-the-scenes photos!

"#ThatsAWrap on season one of #SideHustle! Thank you to @nickelodeon & everyone who worked so hard to make this season — 26 episodes, all produced during a pandemic — happen!" said Beck in his tweet.

Mitchell Berg (Henry Danger, Danger Force), who plays Fisher on the series, replied saying "Thank you John and everyone. This has been an incredible year! Way to go bruh!".

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 during summer on Nickelodeon.

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