On My Block Season 3: Renewal Update And What We Know
OMB second season just landed on Netflix this Friday, March 29. OMB is a teen drama that traces the stories of a bunch of high school teenagers in the neighborhood of Freeridge.
Season 2, just like Season 1 ended with a huge cliff hanger. First residents of Freeridge had to deal with the aftermath of the shooting. Olivia’s survival was the most debated one, and obviously, she didn’t survive. Her death after she was shot by Latrelle at her own quinceañera was a major tearjerker. Ruby survived the gunshot wound though.
Meanwhile, Jamal’s roller world cash needs to be washed. Cesar and Monse’s relationship is on the rocks. No wonder, OMB is a major hit on Netflix.
Despite its hit status, OMB Season 2 hasn’t been renewed by Netflix. Netflix as of today hasn’t made any announcements for Season 3, but one feels it is likely to get a renewal. Season 1 of OMB landed on Netflix on March 16, 2018, and was picked up on April 13, 2018, for Season 2. Season 2 landed on March 29, so it’s still time till Season 3 is confirmed by Netflix. OMB is the most binge-watched show on Netflix, so I don’t see why anything should stand in the way of it being upgraded to Season 3.
As goes for the cast, the following people are slated to return:
Monse (Sierra Capri), Ruby (Jason Genao), Cesar (Diego Tinoco), Jasmine (Jessica Marie Garcia ), Jamal (Brett Gray) and Ruby’s brother Mario (Danny Ramirez). Olivia is out. She was played by Ronni Hawk, and she came under fire for her anti-gun control comments on Twitter. She tweeted out a vitriolic post regarding the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, in which 17 students and staff members were killed, and 17 others injured. Although later, she apologized and requested to be excused.
Season 3 is still in limbo, so it’s a waiting game.
