Netflix has announced a premiere date and has dropped first-look images for its ‘On My Block‘ spinoff, ‘Freeridge.’
The coming-of-age comedy was teased at the end of the final season of its parent series.
According to a synopsis:
Freeridge is a coming-of-age comedy following sibling rivals Gloria and Ines and their friends Demi and Cameron who have unleashed a curse bringing dark misfortune into their lives. There’s a new core four in town in this On My Block spinoff series and an unforgettable adventure to be had.
The new show stars:
Keyla Monterroso Mejia (Gloria), Bryana Salaz (Ines), Tenzing Norgay Trainor (Cam), Ciara Riley Wilson (Demi) and On My Block’s Peggy Blow as series regulars. Paula Garcas, Eric Gutierrez, Eme Ikwuakor and Raushanah Simmons also are reprising their roles from On My Block.
This new group of friends aren't like 'On My Block's core four, says showrunner / co-creator / executive producer Lauren Iungerich.
“The new core four of Freeridge don’t step into the shoes of our original [On My Block] crew. They step into their own shoes, right alongside the legacy of the kids who came before them,” Iungerich tells Netflix’s Tudum. “Through the lens of this new group of friends, we’ll see Freeridge as we know it and also explore a Freeridge we haven’t seen before.”
Freeridge premieres February 2, 2023, only on Netflix.
