On My Block Picked Up For Season 2 On Netflix

Netflix is gearing up to take another trip around the block. 

The streaming service has officially renewed On My Block for a second season, Deadline confirms. Co-created by Awkward's Lauren Iungerich, On My Block launched to rock-solid reviews on March 16, just a month after Netflix's coming-of-age comedy series Everything Sucks! had its premiere. Netflix's decision to renew On My Block comes shortly after the company chose not to pick up Everything Sucks! for a second season. (Everything sucks, indeed.)

Though Netflix, much like fellow streaming sites Hulu and Amazon, doesn't made public its viewership information, it's evident that watchers have fallen for On My Block. The series currently sits at a 93 percent approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with its consensus reading, "Charming, realistic, and focused on underrepresented communities, On My Block is the respite from stylized teen dramas you didn't know you needed."

Co-created and executive produced by Iungerich with Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, On My Block stars Sierra Capri as Monse Finnie, Jason Genao as Ruby Martinez, Brett Gray as Jamal Turner, Diego Tinoco as Cesar Diaz, Ronni Hawk as Olivia, and Jessica Marie Garcia as Jasmine. Here's full synopsis for the series: "On My Block follows a quartet of bright, street-savvy friends who are navigating their way through high school, including all the of the triumph, pain, and newness they experience along the way. Lifelong friendships are tested as Monse, Ruby, Jamal, and Cesar confront the challenges of adolescence and life in their predominantly Hispanic and black neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles in this coming-of-age comedy series."

The first season of On My Block is streaming on Netflix now. No release date for season 2 has been announced at the time of writing.
