Netflix is going around the block again.
The streamer has handed out a third-season renewal for the single-camera comedy On My Block. The order, which arrives a month after its second-season debut, is for eight episodes — down two from its first two seasons.
Co-created by Lauren Iungerich, Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft, On My Block is a coming-of-age comedy set in an inner-city Los Angeles neighborhood. Sierra Capri, Jason Genao, Brett Gray and Diego Tinoco star on the series, which currently has impressive 97 percent and 96 percent ratings among critics and viewers, respectively, on Rotten Tomatoes.
“It’s a special little show. It did pretty well in its first season, but it’s actually increased its following quite well in season two and people really have fallen in love with the characters and that cast,” Netflix originals vp Cindy Holland said. “It’s a great way to provide a window into that world for people who aren’t from it and also a mirror for the people who are from it.”
Netflix, like other streamers, does not release viewership information.
