On My Block's Final Season Trailer Is Hilarious And Emotional At The Same Time

I am not prepared for it to end.

On My Block fans are finally getting some answers. Season 3 of the hit Netflix dramedy ended on a cliffhanger, as the show jumped two years into a future where the main friend group looked very different. Luckily, On My Block is returning for Season 4 on Netflix, so viewers will likely get to see exactly what happened to them before the series ends for good.

Warning: Spoilers for On My Block Season 3 follow. The Season 3 finale already promised big changes for the show's close-knit pals, as Monse (Sierra Capri) left Freeridge High to attend a private boarding school. The four friends promised nothing would change between them, but as the flash-forward showed, that's not the case. Monse seemed to have a new group of besties, while Jamal (Brett Gray) unexpectedly rejoined the football team and Ruby (Jason Genao) got a surprising new look. But most shocking of all was the reveal that, after deciding to distance himself from the Santos gang to protect his friends and have a different future, Cesar (Diego Tinoco) now appears to be the gang's leader.

The main kids are around 17 or 18 years old in the flash-forward, so they've clearly grown into vastly different lives than they expected to have as younger teens. From the first look images, it seems the new season will take place entirely in that future timeline. It will clearly be On My Block as fans have never seen it before.

Here's what we know about Season 4 so far:

On My Block Season 4 Renewal


The On My Block kids are back for one more ride. On Friday, Jan. 29, Netflix announced the coming-of-age show is renewed for a fourth and final 10-episode season. Netflix is keeping the plot details under lock and key so far, but the Season 4 announcement promised the stars will "return to Freeridge one last time for an epic conclusion to their stories."

On My Block Season 4 First Look

The first images from Season 4 are here, confirming the return of the cast for one final round.


On My Block Season 4 Cast


Since the four main cast members — Sierra Capri as Monse, Diego Tinoco as Cesar, Brett Gray as Jamal, and Jason Genao as Ruby — were present in the flash-forward sequence at the end of Season 3, they'll definitely be back to wrap up their characters' stories. Netflix also revealed Jessica Marie Garcia (Jasmin) and Julio Macias (Oscar) will reprise their roles in Season 4.

Since the teens are in a totally different place in their lives, there are bound to be plenty of fresh faces in Season 4, including Andrea Cortés who looks to be playing Oscar’s new main squeeze. Expect to get to know Monse's new friends and the Santos' new recruits this season.

On My Block Season 4 Trailer

Netflix released the On My Block Season 4 trailer on Sept. 20. After the flash-forward in the Season 3 finale, which showed the friend group full dispersed and seemingly no longer close, the new trailer starts to reveal how they grew apart:

On My Block Season 4 Plot


The Season 4 synopsis confirms the show will move forward in time to meet Season 3’s shocking flash forward and explain how the kids got here: “"Season 4 finds our friends two years later, having gone their separate ways. When a secret is unburied, they quickly learn you can't run from the past and they will need to stick together to survive.”

On My Block Season 4 Release Date


The first three seasons of On My Block all dropped on Netflix in March, but coronavirus-related filming delays mean the final season will arrive later in 2021. All 10 episodes arrive on Monday, Oct. 4, 2021.
