It took roughly a month for Netflix to renew On My Block for its second season when it did so in April 2018. If it sticks to a similar time frame this go around, we should hear about the future of On My Block in either late April or May 2019.
Who’s going to appear in On My Block season 3?
Some of the big names returning for season 3 include the main stars including Sierra Capri, Jason Genao Brett Gray, and Diego Tinoco.
In early August 2019, it was announced that Julio Macias had been upped to a series regular. He plays Oscar ‘Spooky’ Diaz.
Where is On My Block season 3 in production?
Current production status: Early production / Filming (last updated: August 2019)
The writers first day back at the office for season 3 happened in May 2019.
The series was put on hold during contract negotiations. These negotiations were apparently stalled in early July 2019 before concluding in late July.
The contract negotiations saw each of the main cast members see big increases in their pay packets going into season 3. According to a report from Deadline, contract negotiations came “down to the wire” adding that each of the four main cast members saw a bump of salary from $20k per episode up to several times that going into season 3.
In mid-August 2019, the series officially began filming its third season. The Instagram account for the writers of the show shared a picture of one of the chairs with the caption: “WE ARE BACK BABY!!! First day of shooting”.
When will season 3 of On My Block be on Netflix?
Renewal of the series came only one month after the release of season two.
Production on the third season has only just begun because of a dispute over the contracts of the cast.
Previous seasons released in March but after the delay, it’s likely On My Block season 3 will be pushed back to April or May 2020.
What will happen in Season 3 of On My Block?
Spoilers for On My Block season 3 below
Let’s talk about that insane ending. Monse Finnie (played by Sierra Capri) is done with the gang life but none of the three boys seem to believe her. It’s not until she walks away from that we see a van pull up out of focus that kidnaps Jamal, Ruby, and Cesar. Once Monse finally turns around, she also gets a bag over her head. Cut to credits.
Monse throughout the series has been reflective on her future and was looking to move to a new school to start life afresh and in episode 10 did come to a conclusion about her future.
There’s a lot of theories surrounding the finale of season 2 online already. This includes a theory on how the IRS (because of the voicemail) or more likely another rival gang committed the kidnapping. Some have speculated that Lil Ricky is not dead, some have suggested it’s the kids from Brentwood or the Cuchillos.
Naturally, it’s hard to see how season 3 will pan out but it’s likely early on we’ll find out who the kidnappers are and hopefully, it begins a shift for the gang to see the errors in their ways. But probably not.
Although it’s far too early to tell, it’s likely the series will stick to a 10 episode format and most of the cast will likely return.
