Netflix Orders 'On My Block' Spinoff 'Freeridge'

Ahead of the comedy's return next week with its fourth and final season, Netflix has today given a series order to a spinoff of its original series On My Block - titled Freeridge.

The female-driven, young adult spinoff will follow a new crew of friends from the titular fictional California city where On My Block is set, who may or may not have unleashed a deadly curse kicking off an unforgettable adventure.

On My Block creators Lauren Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft created the spinoff with Jamie Uyeshio and Jamie Dooner. All five will executive produce with Uyeshiro, Gonzalez and Haft serving as co-showrunners.

"Some of the greatest comments we've heard about On My Block were from fans telling us that they felt seen and represented," said Uyeshiro, Gonzalez and Haft. "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."
