After the release of the final season of ‘On My Block,’ a spin-off has been confirmed
On My Block has come to an end, and audiences have said their final goodbyes to Monse (Sierra Capri), Ruby (Jason Genao), Jamal (Brett Gray), Cesar (Diego Tinoco), and Jasmine (Jessica Marie Garcia). The good news is that an On My Block spin-off is in the works and will be available on Netflix soon.
The spin-off of On My Block was officially announced on Netflix’s Twitter account ahead of the Season 4 premiere on Monday, October 4.
The post stated: We won’t be leaving this incredible universe just yet. Thrilled to announce the stories will continue in Freeridge, an On My Block spin-off!”
The spin-off, Freeridge, is named after On My Block’s fictional Los Angeles neighbourhood.
Freeridge will bring a slew of new characters into the On My Block universe. According to Variety, there will be a new group of friends “who may or may not have unleashed a deadly curse.” The spin-off will also be more focused on women.
There are few details about the cast, characters, and plot of Freeridge at the moment, but the spin-off is unlikely to include the original cast members after Monse, Ruby, Jamal, Cesar, and Jasmine graduated from high school and went their separate ways.
Lauren Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez, and Jeremy Haft, as well as co-producer Jamie Uyeshiro and co-executive producer Jamie Dooner, will return for the spin-off.
Uyeshiro, Gonzalez, and Haft will take over as showrunners for the spin-off instead of lungerich.
Lauren Iungerich, the creator of On My Block, said in a statement, “Co-creating and running On My Block was and will always be a highlight of my life.”
“I am so proud to pass the baton to my incredible partners Eddie and Jeremy and the incomparable Jamie Uyeshiro who rocked it in the writer’s room from day one,”
“There are more stories to tell of our beloved Freeridge and I cannot wait to continue to work with this talented team.”
Uyeshiro, Gonzalez, and Haft said in a joint statement: “Some of the greatest comments we’ve heard about On My Block were from fans telling us that they felt seen and represented,”
“As we embark on Freeridge, a more female-driven show, we will continue to invest in authentic characters that represent our passionate audience.”
“Oh, and there may be gnomies.” they joked. referring to Jamal’s love of garden gnomes
Given that the show has not yet begun production, fans will have to wait a while for it to air.
In the meantime, all four seasons of On My Block are available to re-watch on Netflix at your leisure.
