The show follows childhood friends Ruby (Jason Genao), Jamal (Brett Gray), Monse (Sierra Capri), Jasmine (Jessica Marie Garcia) and Cesar (Diego Tinoco) as they have adventures and deal with growing up in the city.
The fourth season of the show will be its last, and according to Netflix will see “our friends two years later, having gone their separate ways. When a secret is unburied, they quickly learn you can’t run from the past and they will need to stick together to survive.”
The show was co-created by Lauren Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, with Iungrich telling EW that she wanted to capture the life of teens in Los Angeles, dealing with every-day normal teen troubles as well as bigger issues like violence and gangs.
Iungerich said that she created the series because she “really wanted to get back to this teen world that speaks to me” and wanted to make sure there was a show “where the heroes weren’t white” as the “majority of inspirational and fun YA shows are all told through a white prism.”
Iungerich previously worked on MTV’s show Awkward, also a teen drama but the problems those teens dealt with were very different than those On My Block sees.
The final season will feature ten 30-minute episodes, and will follow through on the two-year time jump previewed in the season three finale. The series previously left off with Monse at boarding school, Jamal on the school football team, Ruby and Jasmine still together, Oscar out of the gang and married with a baby on the way, and Cesar as the new head of the Santos gang.
Their reunion, after their lives have changed so much, will likely be messy and complicated but there is every hope that this will be a proper send off for the On My Block crew.
On My Block season four airs on Netflix on Oct. 4.
