Netflix has renewed On My Block for a second season.
The teen series, co-created by Lauren Iungerich (Awkward), Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, is a coming of age comedy about four bright and street-savvy kids in LA.
Starring Diego Tinoco, Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, Brett Gray, Jessica Marie Garcia and Ronnie Hawk, it follows the friends as they navigate their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high school in the South Central neighbourhood.
Stick together to survive is the moral of the series, which teaches a group of young kids that high school is the foundation of the rest of your life – and you can only build that foundation if you’ve got your squad around you.
Season 1 premiered on Friday 16th March. Now, within a month of its debut, Netflix has already ordered a second run. It joins Alexa & Katie in being quickly renewed by the streaming giant, with the announcement following the news that its 90s-set teen sitcom Everything Sucks! has not been so lucky.

The creator of Awkward is heading to Netflix for a new series, titled On My Block.
The coming-of-age comedy was announced this week by the streaming giant, after ordering 10 half-hour episodes. The series charts the growing pains of four bright and street-savvy friends navigating their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high school set in the rough inner city.

Lauren Iungerich has created the show with Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft.

She also worked on the TV version of 10 Things I Hate About You and has since written for the first season of Empire.
On My Block will premiere on Netflix worldwide in 2018. See above and below for your first look at the cast:
