Ahead of the final season premiere of On My Block, Netflix has announced that a spinoff series has been set at the streaming giant.
Titled Freeridge, it has a straight-to-series order and will focus on a new group of friends.
Jamie Uyeshiro, who wrote on all four seasons of On My Block, created the series and will showrun Freeridge with original series creators Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft. Original series creator/showrunner Lauren Iungerich and Jamie Dooner will also be credited as a co-creators and exec producers.
“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 in a joint statement. 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.
More to come.
