Ratings for the second season were up by 35% from season 1 and on November 17, the series reached a high among teens with a 2.16 rating.
Eight episodes aired from August 10, 2007 to September 21, 2007. A show like this could not have existed ten years ago on youth oriented television or any television for that matter. I have loved my experience with The N for having the courage and vision to air South.
I love the cast and how they dimensionalized the characters and created real people that you as fans could relate to and feel for as they reflected your own lives.
I especially love Spashley, The name you gave to the two lead characters.

Each episode of South of Nowhere is half an hour in length with commercials (23–25 minutes of actual program); the pilot episode was one hour (approximately 46 minutes of actual program). Many people thought that The N cut the season in half, but all they did was give South of Nowhere a four-week break.
Nickelodeon and struck a deal to produce DVDs of new and old Nickelodeon shows.
Amazon will be making the discs, cover art, and disc art themselves.
The second season was originally set to begin on October 6, 2006, but was pushed up to September 29, 2006.
