Netflix invites you back to the Freeridge neighborhood of Los Angeles with one on my block Spinoff that will premiere Thursday February 2, 2023.
Announced in September 2021 and weeks later within the teased on my block Series finale, the offshoot Freeridge is described as a coming-of-age comedy following sibling rivals Gloria and Ines (played by Abbott Elementary School‘s Keyla Monterroso Mejia and Team Kaylie‘s Bryana Salaz) and her friends Demi and Cameron (LA’s finest‘s Ciara Riley Wilson and Liv and Maddie‘s Tenzing Norgay Trainor) who have unleashed a curse that will bring dark misfortune into their lives.”
teasing the fork to TVLine last year, on my block and Freeridge Co-creator Jeremy Haft said: “The world of Freeridge is very rich and vibrant, and there are tons of stories to tell. We always had a little grain of hope – [co-creator] Lauren Jiingerich, [executive producer] Jamie Dooner, Eddie [Gonzalez] and I – that we would continue the stories of Freeridge. Happily, and with great gratitude, we say thank you to Netflix for letting us continue to tell these stories.”
Iungerich, who acts as showrunner Freeridgesaid in a statement: “Freeridge’s new Core Four don’t follow in the footsteps of our original [On My Block] Crew. They step into their own shoes, right next to the legacy of the children who came before them. Through the lens of this new group of friends, we will see Freeridge as we know it and also explore a Freeridge we’ve never seen before.”
Freeridge Season 1 will consist of eight half-hour episodes. The cast also includes Peggy Blow in a regular role in the new series, while Paula Garcés, Eric Gutierrez, Eme Ik0wuakor and Raushanah Simmons will reprise their roles from On My Block as Geny, Ruben, Dwayne and Fran.
