On My Block Season 3 is confirmed and here's everything we know about it so far
Like the first season of teen drama/comedy On My Block, season 2 ended with a pretty dramatic cliffhanger after fans quickly benched through everything as fast as Sonic the Hedgehog and wanted more in the end. Now the only thing left to do is to wait for the inevitable arrival of season 3. Also like the first season, season 2 was critically received and because of that, enabled the show to be nominated for numerous awards.
There’s no denying that the next chapter will pick up where it left off, but what’s the plot going to be like? Which of the cast members can we expect to reprise the roles and make their debut? We’ve got all of your answers right here wrapped up in this beautifully structured writeup.
'On My Block' is a coming of the age teen drama/comedy web television series that airs on Netflix depicting four diverse friends going through the many challenges and experiences of high school and their everyday lives in Los Angeles' South Central neighborhood.
Yes indeed! On My Block is coming back for a third season on Netflix, which we hope will surely air sometime in 2020. In fact, the third season of the show was announced precisely one month after the second season dropped on March 29, 2019, which was April 29, 2019. To ensure that the fans weren't being taken for granted, a video announcement was made on the official Twitter account of the show simply stating “on the way”.
This may seem familiar as Netflix renewed the show for a second season approximately one month after the first season dropped back in March 2018, which was in April 2018.
And now comes the part where we talk about what happened in the second season of ‘On My Block.’ So if you don’t want to be spoiled if you haven’t gotten on board the series yet, now is the perfect time to abandon ship.
As Season 2 came to a close, we saw that two of the show's main characters, Ruby and Olivia were shot. However, Ruby was later shown to have survived the wound, but Olivia didn't, leading to a wide outcry of fans on social media and every other online platform.
But it seems the group is going to be losing someone else from what we've seen with that suspenseful cliffhanger. Monse expresses her decision to leave Freeridge and go over to an all-girls boarding school. It didn't seem as if Jamaal, Ruby, and Cesar believed her and started arguing with one another.
As Monse appeared to be walking away from the group, three men from a van pull over to her three friends and abduct them behind her back. And when she turns around to see no one there, the same fate befell her.
The filming for the third season had already concluded back in August 2019. In fact, the first day of season 3's journey started at the writer's office back in May 2019.
There was a slight delay in the progress of the season due to contract negotiations for almost an entire month of July 2019. These negotiations involved pay bumps in the salary packages for each of the main cast members before heading out to season 3. Deadline reported that those negotiations came "down to the wire" in which every cast member got a $20,000 bump in their salary for each episode to numerous times that were already decided for the third season.
The third season officially went to production in the middle of August 2019. The writers of the show shared a picture on their official Instagram account indicating in full caps, "WE ARE BACK BABY!!! First day of shooting". The shooting location for the season was once again in Los Angeles.
The filming officially concluded on October 3rd with Diego Tinoco making the announcement on his official Instagram account where he says:
“Finished filming On My Block Season 3 & it’s the best one yet 🔥 Coming soon! 😘”
Since filming has already concluded, we can expect the third season of 'On My Block' to air probably in the first or second quarter of 2020 which is somewhere between February to May/June of the same year.
But if you were to give us just one good month for it to air, probably go with March. And the reason for that is because the first two seasons aired imprecisely the same months for the last two years.
It's pretty much a lock that all the main characters of the show are looking to reprise their roles in the season going forward, including Diego Tinoco, Brett Gray, Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, and Jessica Mary Garcia.
And it was announced back in August 2019, that Julio Macias, who plays Oscar 'Spooky' Diaz, has graduated from supporting character to series regular. The reason for this is because Macias' performance at the end of season 2 impressed a bunch of very important people backstage during the shoot.
Despite the production being over for a couple of months now, there hasn't been any teaser for the third season, much less a full trailer released as of yet. But don't worry, we'll update the page once we get something. So be on the lookout during that time.
Whoa there! Let's not jump the gun there yet. It all depends on how the story goes and whether the executives over at Netflix are kind enough to let the show go on for a couple of more seasons given the recent history of shows that died off during the most intense story developments. But let's all pray that that doesn't come to pass.
