The streaming service has picked up On My Block for an eight-episode third season one month after the coming-of-age comedy premiered its 10-episode second season. "It's a special little show," said Cindy Holland, Netflix vice president of original content, in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. "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. 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." Showrunner Lauren Iungerich, who co-created the series, said: "The entire On My Block team is beyond thrilled and grateful to continue telling this uniquely fun and important story with a third season." On My Block's renewal comes as it continues to take heat for One Day at a Time's cancelation. But unlike One Day at a Time, On My Block is owned by Netflix and is cheaper to produce because it's a single-camera comedy.
