Netflix announces a more female-driven spin-off series for 'On My Block.'
'On My Block' debuted on Netflix in March 2018 and will end its run with a fourth and final season.
However, ahead of its upcoming final season, Netflix has announced a new spin-off series titled 'Freeridge.'
'Freeridge' is the fictional Los Angeles neighborhood where On My Block is set. The new series is a more female-driven teen comedy set within the original titular fictional city of the original series.
'Freeridge' comes from 'On My Block' Co-creators Lauren Lungerich, Jeremy Haft, and Eddie Gonzales, with Jamie Dooner and Jamie Uyeshiro.
Here is everything you need to know about 'Freeridge,' including release date, plot, cast, and more.

Thrilled to announce the stories will continue in Freeridge, an On My Block spinoff!
There is no release date yet, and the production status for the new show is still unknown.
There are speculations that production may have already begun. But so far, we have not seen any set photos.
Since 'On My Block' Season 4 premiered on Oct. 4, the spin-off series could debut sometime in 2022.
We expect to get more details in the upcoming months.
As per Netflix, 'Freeridge' will feature “a new crew of friends who may or may not have unleashed a deadly curse, kicking off an unforgettable adventure.”
It seems like Netflix is getting away from the realistic gang rivalry and will instead explore a more supernatural take for the spin-off.
Aside from that, 'Freeridge' co-creators and co-showrunners Jeremy Haft, Jamie Uyeshiro, and Eddie Gonzalez said that the spin-off will be a more “female-driven show.”
There are no official casting details for 'Freeridge' yet, but we already have the details about the main four characters of the show.
Cameron- The new lead character is a Black and Indigenous person of color. He is raised by his co-dependent divorced parents, who still keep their communication going. Cameron has never dated girls because he is scared of them. He does, however, date many boys.
Demi - She is a second-generation Asian-American. Demi is a cheerful and positive person who takes up a job as a social worker. She is a hard-core romantic but has a hard time finding anyone that matches her energy levels.
Gloria- A Latina/Hispanic character, Gloria is described as the “secret glue of the crew.” She is a highly driven person.
Ines- Also a member of the Latina / Hispanic community, Ines is Gloria’s little sister. She is exceptionally smart despite skipping a grade at school.
As of this writing, there is still no confirmation if the 'On My Block' cast will appear for cameo roles. But we will continuously update this article. So, feel free to check back on the link from time to time.
There is no official trailer for 'Freeridge' yet. The trailer won't likely arrive at least until next year. Don't worry because we will make sure to update this space once the official trailer is available.
