On My Block is a Teen-Comedy-Drama web TV series from America. It is created by Laureen Lungerich, Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft. The first season was aired on Netflix on 16th March’2018, after which, it became a sensational hit and renewed for season 2 and 3 over the due course of time by Netflix. The story is around the lifelong friendship of 4 teens, which is subjected to test on various occasions while they begin their high school.
Rotten Tomatoes has given 95% approval ratings to the first season, following by a critical review on the website which has been posted as: “Charming, realistic, and focused on underrepresented communities, On My Block is the respite from stylized teen dramas you didn’t know you needed.”
The series and actors have been nominated for 3 awards till now, out of which they have graciously won “Teen Choice Awards” in 2018 for the category “Choice Breakout TV Show”
The news on Season 4’s release is not officially out yet due to worldwide lockdowns and pandemic situation. Also, there are no trailers to be seen online, maybe it will screen around Jan-Feb 2021. However, we would surely hear soon from Netflix about its screen hitting dates. Although, season 4 may be all out in March 2021, just like season 3 was all out in March’2020 and season 1 and 2 were out around the same time in earlier years.
The Cast would mostly remain the same, except a few additions and deduction as per the upcoming plots of season 4:
- Sierra Capri as Monsé Finnie (headstrong Afro-Latina tomboy, who serves as the leader of her friend group. Raised by her single father, she is in love with one of her best friends, Cesar)
- Jason Genao as Ruben “Ruby” Martinez Jr. (smart-aleck math whiz of Mexican descent often serving as the group’s conscience)
- Brett Gray as Jamal Turner (the nerd of the group, who is an African-American)
- Diego Tinoco as Cesar Diaz (an intelligent teen forced into gang life once his brother is released from prison, putting a strain on a blossoming relationship with Monsé)
- Jessica Marie Garcia as Jasmine Flores (a classmate of the group, who has a romantic obsession with Ruby)
- Julio Macias as Oscar “Spooky” Diaz (Cesar’s older brother and a member of the Santos gang)
The season 3 ended a bit sadly as per the fans expectations with distancing relations between the group of teens, Monsé has joined another group, Ruby, Brett and Cesar are seen apart from each other while moving out from the high school. There was a 2-year time jump shown during the finale, which might be forming a baseline for the next season. We can expect these teens to be shown as grownups with some very interesting and twisted storylines about life-lasting friendships.
