Is On My Block canceled?

Seasons: 4

Created By: Lauren Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft

Starring: Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, Brett Gray, Diego Tinoco, Jessica Marie Garcia, Julio Macias

It’s tough to watch a series not got the credit it deserves. Far too many series exist in underrated territory, whether they stick around by the power of the fervent fanbase or they bow out much too soon for any given reason. Netflix’s original teen drama series On My Block lives somewhere in the middle ground. Four seasons is a solid run, but it’s also not nearly enough.

From co-creator Lauren Iungerich, the creator of MTV’s equally underrated teen comedy Awkward., On My Block tracks the coming-of-age of a group of four inner-city Los Angeles teenagers. Together, they take on the start of high school together, which also includes the struggles they face in their friendships, relationships, homes and community.

On My Block first premiered on Netflix in 2018 and immediately earned praise from critics and audiences alike. Although the series hasn’t reached the high-profile heights of some of its fellow Netflix originals, the series has stayed true to itself and its storytelling. Thankfully, On My Block will have a fourth and final season to send its characters off in the right way, but it’s an absolute bummer that Netflix couldn’t save the series from its underrated fate.
