Netflix series “On My Block” is heading for its final season next week and the streaming service has announced a new spin-off called “Freeridge” is in the works. Co-creators Lauren Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez, and Jeremy Haft along with co-producer Jamie Uyeshiro and co-executive producer Jamie Dooner are all linked to the spin-off according to Variety.
Tracey Pakosta, Netflix’s head of comedy, said “While this chapter is closing for our OG squad this October as they reach the end of High School, we are excited to bring a brand new cast of characters and stories to life in this ‘On My Block’ spin-off. There are so many more stories to tell in Freeridge and we’re grateful to continue this journey with Lauren, Eddie, Jeremy, Jamie Uyeshiro and Jamie Dooner.”
The series creators have also stated that “Freeridge” will be a more female driven show but will continue to invest in authentic characters that represent our passionate audience.
