Netflix has ordered a third season of On My Blok.
The streaming giant handed out a season renewal for its high school comedy series a month after its second-season debut. The third season of the single-camera comedy consists of eight episodes, down two from the first two seasons.
On My Block was co-created by Awkward‘s creator Lauren Iungerich with Eddie Gonzalez and Jeremy Haft. It is a coming-of-age story about a group of friends navigating their way through the triumph, pain and the newness of high school in LA’s South Central neighborhood.
“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 tells 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.”
The renewal was announced on Twitter Tuesday.
