'On My Block' Is Returning for a Fourth and Final Season
Since Season 1 dropped in 2018, Netflix viewers haven't been able to get enough of On My Block. Teens and adult viewers alike have flocked to the coming-of-age drama, and the stakes have increased with each passing season.
Viewers have grown attached to the stories of Monse (Sierra Capri), Cesar (Diego Tinoco), Ruby (Jason Genao), Jasmine (Jessica Marie Garcia), and Jamal (Brett Gray) as they navigate their Los Angeles high school and the real life concerns over gangs, deportation, new love, and complicated family dynamics.
Season 3 of the Netflix drama dropped in March of 2020. The two year time jump in the season finale had fans wondering if the show could possibly come back, or if it was poised to end right then and there.
Will there be an On My Block Season 4? The show's fate has been confirmed, and fans will be excited by the news.
Will there be an 'On My Block' Season 4? When is the show returning?
Though Season 3 of the Netflix drama dropped in March of 2020, fans didn't get to learn about the show's renewal status until nearly a year later. In January of 2021, the streaming service officially renewed On My Block for a fourth and final season.
While the other seasons came out in March for three consecutive years, Season 4 of On My Block will not be following suit.
Netflix has yet to share the release date for the final season. This could be because of production delays due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, or because of the show's late renewal.
For many longtime fans, the release of Season 4 can't come soon enough. After all, the third season concluded on quite the cliffhanger.
The Season 3 finale of 'On My Block' featured a time jump.
The Season 3 finale of On My Block polarized fans because many thought it hinted at the show's imminent conclusion. Others thought that it opened the door to another inevitable season.
Before the finale, the five friends were dealing with the threat of the Cuchillos gang (who had kidnapped them earlier in the season). But, this was all resolved in the finale because of Cesar's brother, Oscar "Spooky" Diaz (Julio Macias) taking the gang head on (and living to tell the tale).
While the looming threat of intense violence between the core five and the Cuchillos served as a big plot point throughout Season 3, by the finale, this threat was eliminated. This had fans wondering what could possibly fuel a fourth season. That was answered when the finale showed a big time jump.
After Spooky is seen recovering from his physical and violent interaction with the gang, the show flashes forward to two years in the future — and things are wildly different for the group.
First of all, Monse has been sent away to an all-girls private boarding school (leaving her status with Cesar as unresolved as ever before). She also has found a new crew of friends at this school, which will likely be a point of contention in Season 4. Since she was truly the glue of the friend group, the others are also struggling to maintain their tight bond.
Meanwhile, Spooky and a previously-unseen girlfriend are expecting their first child together, and Jasmine and Ruby appear to be an item.
In the most dramatic moment, it's hinted that Cesar has now joined the Santos gang, and he is the leader.
On My Block Seasons 1 through 3 are now available to stream on Netflix.
