Meet Netflix's 'Freeridge' Cast and the 'On My Block' Actors Reprising Roles

Freeridge, the new Netflix show which is a spin-off of On My Block, is set to feature some returning characters from the original series.

Netflix has described Freeridge as "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."

The show follows a similar story to On My Block, which ran for four seasons from 2018 to 2021 and followed four bright, street-savvy friends navigating their way through high school, adolescence and life in their predominantly Hispanic and Black neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles.

Freeridge, named after the neighborhood where the show and On My Block before it is set, is co-created and executive produced by Lauren Iungerich, who is also the showrunner, Jamie Uyeshiro, Eddie Gonzalez, Jeremy Haft and Jamie Dooner.
